Hello all,

I've been working on getting my late 15th century Gothic/Italian harness and I've been kicking around the idea of getting this garment to complete the kit Wink

But I'm concerned if this would look out of place with the style of harness I want Worried

Since this style is done by Milanese armourers, I thought this wouldn't look out of place...but I dunno. Is there any evidence of this garment being work on Gothic armour?

Thanks in advance
-Reece

There are cloth garments seen with 'gothic' armours but that particular one does shout, if not scream, Italianate to me....

I read somewhere that both Gothic and Milanese styles combined to form a maximillian style armour. So I would assume that both styles could be combined into early prototypes. Especially if the armourers' styles were to be imitated, or if rich men of that time ordered pieces from multiple sources.
