Description

Renaissance period gambeson was popular among knights in the XVI-XVII centuries. It has typical for this time short waist-line cut. Such a design provides great flexibility allowing wear it as gambeson and waistcoat.

Quite often, this light vest gambeson had detachable laced sleeves.

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 for:

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

Base price includes following options:

  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. Black leather straps;
  6. Straight bottom edge;
  7. No fastenings for steel arms.

If you plan to wear it under plate cuirass, so 2-3 layers of padding will be enough. So while ordering, please indicate, if you will use it under or over the main armour.

Cotton or linen gambesons were more typical for infantrymen. Rich knights were choosing woolen, leather or silk gambesons with bronze buttons or cast buckles.

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

We recommend you to order leather fastenings for steel arms, if you plan to use arm protection and plate spaulders over quilted gambeson.

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

  • royal-blue cotton for outer and inner shell;

    Amazing item! I ordered it with 1 layer of padding and that is more than enough for use under a plate harness. I am super excited about this product and plan on ordering from Steel Mastery in the future.
