A brigandine is a form of Medieval body armour, used from the 14th century. It is a cloth garment, generally canvas or leather, lined with small oblong steel plates riveted to the fabric. Our version is very resilient, consisting of leather and steel only. In principle it is a nice protective cloth vest containing metal plates.
The form of the brigandine is essentially the same as the civilian doublet, though it is commonly sleeveless. However, depictions of brigandine armour with sleeves are known. Many brigandines appear to have had larger, somewhat 'L-shaped' plates over the lungs. The rivets, or nails, attaching the plates to the fabric are often decorated, being gilt or of latten and often embossed with a design.
