Gothic Suit of Amour, full plate armour set

In the Middle Ages, plate armour was usually customized to fit each individual. Here we offer a standardized size for men of average stature and a body-height of about 1.75 m to 1.80 m. But adjustable straps and buckles are riveted to the important parts. (We admit that the buckles could be replaced by more authentic ones.) So it is possible to adjust the armour to your size. Of course, you can't expect 100% accuracy on fit.

The whole set of includes the following components:

  • helmet, simple sallet with visor incl. cotton cap
  • two-piece folding bevor
