This suit of armour is made in the German style of the late 15thcentury. The armour is quite angular and has pointy elbow cops that are typical for this style. This fashion style is a large counterpart of the Italian design that was predominantly rounder. Suits of armour like this are part of the collections of i.a. the Royal Armouries of Leeds, Glasgow Museum, het Legermuseum in Delft and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
The armour is made of cold rolled plate steel. It is available with a steel thickness of 1,3 or 1,5 mm and with an unpolished, polished or bronzed finish.

Attaching armour & chainmail
To attach your armour or chainmail securely, you can attach leather laces to your gambeson and fasten these to your armour / chainmail. The armour thus remains in position during a fight.
Maintenance & care
