I'm looking for a set of buckles to built an hanger for my late XVIth century kit, the result that i wish to obtain is an hanger plausible for a western european soldier in the timeframe 1570s - 1590s

at the moment i have been able to find two options:

a set offered by darwood armoury that is fairly inexpensive and a set offered by Tod's Stuff that is surely superior in terms of worksmanshio and finish, but priced accordingly.

my kit portray a common soldier, so i don't need it nothing of fancy, the darkwood armoury set could be a good option but i would prefere an european vendor, to save the expense connected with the custom fees,

do you have recommendations?

thanks

Hello,

Years ago I obtained a full-on rapier belt set from Tod's Stuff. It was great then and still is now. Tod made it using plain tan leather so it is fancy, yet not overly so. I would go with him always.

JG Elmslie also makes a nice set:

Although the cheapest set would have to be McFarthingbowls:

(they do all the buckles separately, too)

I think Historic Enterprises also do a buckle set for one of those.
