Padded Armour Company - Late Medieval Arming Doublet
A late medieval arming doublet.

The outer is of a heavy weight grey linen, re-enforced with
black leather.  It is lightly padded with woollen fabric, and
the lining is of off white linen.

The sleeves fasten at the wrist, with a number of point holes
for ties, to allow the cuff to fit tightly.

The puffs at the tops of the sleeves are stuffed with wool
fleece, into a 'dropped' shape, to support the armour to be
worn over it.

The arming doublet has a huge number of point holes
(around 70), to support the armour, all hand sewn,
re-enforced with internal metal rings.

The front fastens with hand made hooks and eyes.
