Medieval doublet – it’s a garment that was normally worn under the armors. Commonly it was made from flax. But rich knights could afford it be made with the silk lining or velvet outer shell. Sometimes doublet was reinforced with the bands of chainmail: on the sleeves and armpits. Medieval knights used the waxed laces to attach their arm armors to the padding.
A medieval doublet is a garment that was normally worn under armor and commonly made from flax. However, rich knights could afford for it to be made with silk lining or a velvet outer shell.

Our Arming Doublet is done in a beautiful graphite gray color. Made from durable cotton twill weave fabric with a strength of 250g/m2. The twill weave fabrics have high density and wear resistance. This material is also characterized by high hygienic and heat transfer properties. The interior padding is 100% breathable cotton.
Our Arming Doublet has different stitching lines: horizontal on the elbows and semi-circular on the chest and shoulder-blades. The rest of the doublet is stitched vertically. This combination of stitches provides high mobility. This under-armor jacket has a collar which is essential if you are going to use steel neck protection. The doublet fastens with ten handmade fabric buttons and loops. The doublet creates an elongated silhouette which give an elegant look. The trim is done in the same fabric as the rest of the doublet.
Our Arming Doublet is available in a variety of colors such as: black, red, green, yellow or blue.
It can be completed with sewn leather arming points for arm armor connection. One pair of arming points will be attached on the shoulders. Two pairs will be sewn to the sleeve above and under the elbow joint.
Please note: the sewn arming points may not fit the holes of your steel arm harness. In this case, you can easily unsew them and change the positions according to your needs.
