Description

Aketon of the XIV century was a widespread type of padded armour and mostly was used by foot soldiers because of short sleeves.

Usually, such model were being worn under the chainmail, and more rare - over it. Length of aketon could vary, but it was not too long – usually until the middle of thighs.

Made-to-measure gambeson may be sewn by two ways:

  • Machine manufacturing. Tailors will make padded armor by your parameters, using sewing machine.
  • Hand sewing. Custom gambeson will be completely sewn by hands of our tailors. Such type of manufacture is historical one and is offered for additional costs.

You can use this gambeson armor for:

  • SCA
  • HEMA
  • Larp
  • Stage performances
  • Medieval festivals
  • Reenactment events

  1. 1-2 layers of padding (natural sheet wadding 50% cotton, 50% wool);
  2. Natural (uncoloured) cotton for outer and inner shell;
  3. Standard sleeves’ attaching (closed armpit);
  4. XS-size;
  5. Straight bottom edge;
  6. No fastenings for steel arms.

There is leather strap on the collar for fastening. Cuts on the bottom hem from the front and back allow comfortable moving.

Variety of materials for this gambeson will let you to point out social status. Rich knights were wearing aketons and doublet made of velvet, wool or leather. Poor soldiers were using linen or cotton gambesons.

We offer different quantity of layers for your short-sleeved gambeson. If you plan to wear quilted underamor under the hauberk, so 5-6 layers will be required. If there will be full-plate armor or brigandine, so 2-3 layers of wadding is enough.

Various color are available for order. If you choose half-coloured or quarter-coloured gambeson, please inform us by e-mail, what colours you prefer and its exact disposition.

If you plan to use plate arms or spaulders over your gambeson, we recommend you to order leather fastenings for steel arms.

There are two layers of padding in sleeves by default. If you want to change it, please contact us sales@steel-mastery.com
