You may use this gambeson armor together with chainmail. In this case we recommend to order quilted gambeson with 4-6 layers of padding. If you plan to wear it under brigandine or plate armour, so 2-3 layers of padding will be enough.
The special feature of padded doublet is a quantity of buttons on the sleeves and bosom. Soldiers, crossbowmen and halberdiers were using buttons covered with fabric, or wooden, or bone. Poor knight or prosperous citizen could use tin buttons, and rich townsfolk were able to afford to wear men`s doublet with silver or gold buttons, enameled or gem-incrusted. We offer great variety of fastening for your medieval gambeson, such as buttons, leather straps with steel or brass points, cast brass buckles.
