“Armor Bearer” Cotta Jacket
Men's classic medieval woolen cotta
Cotta jacket is made of natural wool. The stand-up collar, buttons fastener with loop buttonholes. Can be worn even in winter - triple pleated woolen cloth at the chest and at the back is thicken with thin layer of insulant to keep the authentic look. In the XVth century torso part of such gowns was thicken with the batting padding or with several layers of flax linen, but that made them even more heavy and poorly adapted for use. The pleats on the front and back parts of the jacket are settled at the waist and further spread out mildly like a fan. The basque of the jacket is very wide - almost three meters (10 feet) round.
The sleeve is tightly gathered in the line of the arm-hole and is made narrower at the wrist level that forms relevant for the period "leg of lamb" shape. The lower part of the sleeve (forearm) is also fastened with the tiny buttons to achieve the ideal seating on the arm. Elegant round shape of the sleeve cap is also emphasized by the reenforced stitched element sewn between the padding and external layer of fabric to support "bishop sleeve" shape.
Please note that dark blue wool has a very dark shade, that may appear black under electric light indoors.
