Velvet Gambeson “The King's Guard”

Limited edition knight's pourpoint

A King’s personal guard was every bit an extension of the King himself. Only the highest quality arms and armor were good enough for those who pledged their lives to his defense. In or out of armor, a King’s Guard was judged by the quality of his attire.

In this vein, ArmStreet developed the King’s Guard line of XIV century armour for the discerning fighter and reenactor. However, we could not stop with the exterior armor, only a gambeson “made for a King”, or his guard, would do to complete this armor kit. ArmStreet is proud to present our limited edition – King’s Guard Gambeson! This is the epitome of what a regal padded under armor garment should be. Made of our exclusive wine-red, patterned velvet, this gambeson will turn heads on the field and at Court. Up close, this gambeson has an amazingly rich and authentic look that is based on the style of pourpoint made famous by Charles de Blois. The gambeson even comes with authentic leather trim and handmade, velvet-cloth covered leather buttons. We have used only the highest quality of materials to create the one-of-a-kind arming garment and that we guarantee you will be proud to wear for many years to come.

Pourpoint features:

  • Limited patterned velvet
  • Authentic design
  • Leather trimming
  • Velvet-covered handmade buttons
  • Cotton/lining padding
  • Natural batting

Mark Klimaszewski:

What are the arming points on a Gambeson?

ArmStreet team:

Laces sewn on a gambeson which are used to attach the armor pieces.

Mark Klimaszewski:

Do you make armor sizes for those over the hill knights of much greater girth who sit by the roasting pits and meade barrels talking of past glories?

ArmStreet team:

Possibly yes, please specify which armor you'd like to order and email us your measurements (full height, chest, waist, hips) at

Alain St-Amour:

Is this pourpoint available in larger size ?

ArmStreet team:

Can be made to order in size L or XL, please check our size chart.

Stephen Saunders:

Does this Pourpoint have points for attaching the armour? And if not how does one attach the Kings Guard Armour?

ArmStreet team:

All our gambesons come without the arming points (supposed that it's more convenient to sew on the laces by yourself, when you've already tried wearing on the armour over your gambeson). We can add the arming points for $5-15 extra (depending on how many points you need), simply add a comment to your order.
