In this article, we're telling how to choose a gambeson.
Made-to-measure gambison may be sewn by two ways:
HEMA style gambeson
Gentlemen prefer leather laces
First of all, have a look at HEMA gambeson in front of you. Do you know, what makes it as it is? That nice overlap of flaps on the chest part. Firstly, there is always additional protection of body. As even if two layered gambeson was ordered, you will get four layers of protection on the chest. Secondly, there is a severe conformity to HEMA standards. We will talk more specifically about it.
In case, two honorable gentlemen have a modicum of free time, desire to warm-up and specific knowledges about Historical European martial arts, so why would two honorable gentlemen and their comrades, having discussed about martial arts a little bit, not to rough up each other with bats. Without evil intent, but as a part of historical experiment only.
That’s how a soldier, writer, swordsman and true gentlemen Alfred Hutton were considering in the 1862 year, when he organized his own Cameron Fencing Club and published 12-page manual for historical fencing “Swordsmanship”. HEMA enthusiast existed before Mr. Hutton, however we owe just to him modern golden age of this sport historical movement.
And, in order to have still gentleman look after such experiment, but not be like lower class, covered with grazes and bruising, these gentlemen will require such a little as padded gambeson.
It is worth to notice that primarily HEMA gambeson was not aimed for reconstruction of historical protecting clothing. It had being designed just as functional protecting clothing, which was providing proper protection of blows of dull steel sword. Gentlemen have chosen gambeson armor in particular instead of common fencing protection, because it proved successful during the centuries.
However, modern padded jacks shifted away from the forefathers so much that now have even zip fasteners. Think it over! Zip fasteners! I just choke with a piece of pudding! No, no, and no! So what if zipper is much faster and easier in use, than strings. We suggest such choice non-gentleman, criticize it in every way and insist on the using of leather strings in particular. That allows your HEMA style being HEMA jacket and classy medieval gambeson at the same time, in which it is not a shame for any gentleman to take a walk at the presentable event among other ladies and gentlemen in historical clothing.
Our tailors were working hard, studying HEMA manuscripts, ancient tapestries and gravures, and created really cross-functional aketon armor. The one, which allows not only fencing, but also making wonders of acrobatics. It looks decent, but may complete even royal armor at the highest level. It is cut according to the HEMA rules, but definitely unique. Classy pass to the courteous community ;)
When you will be ordering your gambison, you may choose not only fabric and color (or color combination, as we offer half or quarter-colored padded protection as well), leather, type of stitching and size. It is up to you what quantity of layers will be in your padded gambeson, whether it will be sewn or laced sleeves, or will they be absent at all.
You will get real custom gambeson, made only for you, which will serve you for years, protecting good and delighting an eye.
