Woolen Gambeson “The King's Guard”
Padded knight's pourpoint, late 14th c.
Our latest addition to our line of 14th century clothing and armors is this exception woolen pourpoint patterned off of a number of examples in period art and two extant garments on display in museums the pourpoints of Charles de Blois and Charles VI.
The ArmStreet Woolen Pourpoint provides the wearer not only with a warm and supremely protective garment that can be worn under both maille and plate armor, but a garment that can be proudly worn by itself at court or revel (though we suggest that some form of hosen be worn as well).
Our Pourpoint is made of top quality wool with authentic leather trim and completely handmade, cloth-covered buttons. The buttons are sewn on close to each other as are the buttons on both the Charles de Blois and Charles VI garments, which provides complete protection from the icy cold drafts that come with Fall and Winter campaigning and presents a slimmer silhouette as was fashionable during this time period.
We have used only the highest quality materials to create a one-of-a-kind arming garment that we guarantee you will be proud to wear for many years to come. The way a knight looked, on and off the field, was of great concern to the peerage of the Late 14th century and the spared no expense to cut a dashing figure. ArmStreet provides modern-day reenactors the same period fashion at a price anyone can afford.
Midwinter feasts and tournaments are ahead, this season, stand out from the crowd with a new Woolen Pourpoint!
