Help w/ My first soft kit
I'm asking for some help on my first soft kit. I am basing this impression on a historical fight manual called the The flower of Battle by Fiore De Liberi, which was written in 1410. I have included an attachment of what is the typical garb throughout the manual. _Combat_with_Dagger_-_Google_Art_Project_(6904067).jpg
As you can see there is a variety of upper/outer garments depicted, many of them short sleeved with a shirt underneath. I would like to know these garments are called in English and if possible in Italian.
I also am curious as to what others think about the leg wear depicted. Split hose or Chasses?
Finally if anyone has a source for obtaining these upper/outer garments shown, please post. I have been unable to locate anything looking remotely close to what I'm seeing here.

I would posit that at least some of these are simply showing a seam between the shoulder and the sleeve on ordinary doublets or pourpoints.

There is at least one distinct sort of 'cloak' that is being worn by the crowned figure on the top left. This one I've seen before, but I regrettably don't know the name.

I believe in this period it was split hose that were worn. I could honestly be wrong, though.
