Origional Pinner>> Made this gambeson for my husband to wear at a LARP. The cut is based on the armor of the 'Witcher' character Geralt from the PC games and the books. The inlay is made of cotton, the outside is mad.
The long surcoat with the buttons up the front is a nice possible top layer, the 4 splits (front/back/left/right) would give plenty of room for movement. But dear god is the shiny leather ugly like this, either suede or some other materal.
