Maximilian armour can be seen as the best and most beautiful body armour ever made.
Suits of armour like this were worn around 1510 AD in Renaissance Europe and are part of the collections of Musée de l?Armée, the Wallace Collection, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Royal Armouries of Leeds. The greaves were not ribbed, contrary to the rest of the suit of armour, presumably to imitate the stockings that were fashionable in the 16th century. The sabatons are flat and wide, just like the shoes that were worn around this period.
This complete Maximilian 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. Click here for more information on Decoration & finish. The suit of armour is delivered including the closed helmet.

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.
