Description

Renaissance period gambeson was widespread 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 armor and waistcoat.

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

Made-to-measure gambeson armour 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. For your choice, there are also simple, but firm leather lacing, buttons covered with fabric or various models of bronze handmade 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. By choosing option “Laced sleeves”, you this short gambeson jacket may be turned into sleeveless gambeson.

There is one layer of padding in sleeves by default. If you want to change it, please contact us [email protected]

    I just got mine in the mail and I love. The custom tailoring makes for an excellent fit and it has quality construction.

    Love the style of this doublet! Big thanks to tailors, it fits like a glove and so comfy! Special thanks to customer service manager for her kind and useful answers to all my questions:)

    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.

    I ordered this gambeson for use under my harness. While it took a little bit to get to me because of a misshap at the postal service, Steel Mastery was very helpful in helping me locate it. I recieved it yesterday and I am already amazed at the quality and usefulness. I ordered 1 layer of padding which is more than enough for using it under plate, but be aware that the armpit holes might be too open and allow the rearbrace and opening to poke you, although this was an easy fix. All in all, I am very excited about this item and plan to order more soon.
