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.
