very true...maybe these folks (http://www.paddedarmour.com/) might consider making them for us. They might even be able to sell them to victorian reenactors as well.
We are already talking about a jacket. For about a year now.
Dont hold your breath
Paul, Do you remember Fox? Big chap, hairy, turned up at the manchester study group a few times?
His partner makes gambesons, and is probably cheaper and more contactable than 'the padded armour company' I shall be carefull what I say because Debbie and Nigel (the padded armour company' are freinds of mine, and they are very well up on the historical side. However they are very busy.
Fox's partner, Jackie, is a trained patternmaker, so would probably be well suited to doing something that was what you wanted rather than a replica of a particular historical one. She's very good, has made several things for me and has an excellent eye for fit and the way things move.
