Re: The 3 Shires 14th- 15th Cent

i could not agree more,

i was simply pointing what i was told by derrick, that ''they are not 100%'' living history level

this was not to imply they were rubbish, far from it in fact, :-D

The 3 Shires 14th- 15th Cent

http://www.threeshiresmedieval.com/

late 14th cent to early 15th cent

they are the 1st to admit, not 100% living history level, but they are fun and friendly

combat, have a go archery, etc, etc

Re: archaeology on this anyone ?

this is a linen gambeson ( lined with cotton, which i intend to replace with linen, simply as i prefer linen ) front fastening ( but none fitted yet ) it comes to about mid thigh length. it fits nice on the body, but when bending my elbows it becomes very restrictive, and as i do archery, i should ...

Re: archaeology on this anyone ?

yeah i know, the gamb IS for use with WOTR, i only added the picture from the 'MB' to show that what looks like short sleeved gambs ''could'' be shown, i had/ have no intention of using it for 13th cent, it simply relates to my original question of finding historical data on short sleeved gambs, and...

Re: Making a gambi

i've always found it a little strange, some groups insist on hand sewn visiable seems etc, yet dont mind about machine sewn gambs, i guess its all down to what each group finds acceptable, no right or wrong there really ive never made a gamb, way too much work for me, although i have a nice linen on...

Re: Making a gambi

these do a nice range http://www.medieval-market.biz/ and i've heard cloak and daggered do some real nice ones too, as for making your own herts fabrics did some really nice thick linen i always get some good ideas from around the history markets, but never made a gambeson myself, so would be very i...

Re: archaeology on this anyone ?

thanks neil, the more ideas the better, i was going to ask spes at the market, as they make some nice ones, ( although the short sleeved one is later than my prefered period ) just to see if they can give me a steer on it. logic dictates people would, (as they still do) adapt, to suit needs and avai...

Re: archaeology on this anyone ?

personally i wouldnt see a problem with shortening the sleeves, i am sure folks modified things for comfort/efficiency back then just as much as things are modified now. to be honest thats my way of thinking too, no mater what the time period, people were not idiots, but you know what its like with...

Re: archaeology on this anyone ?

could you not widen the sleeves rather than chopping them off? Should be possible if there's a reasonable seam allowance. If there isn;t you could add a gore in. I think this would be more authentic. I can't think of any pictures of archers with short sleeved padding, but lots with long sleeves. I ...

Re: The Archers A New Society

in my opinion i hope it does not get bogged down with a debate about the period clothing /armour etc,

i think its a great concept, its all too easy to look at what possiable problems may arise, but let it walk before kicking it in the teeth

i totally support this
