Leather Armour

A regal leather cuirass designed to protect the whole torso. Secure this armour tight over the chest and abdomen using three sturdy leather straps and brass buckles on the back. This cuirass is crafted to be especially hardy by stitching together overlapping full-grain leather and secured with brass studs. For additional protection, matching upper leg guards are attached to the cuirass with hardy leather straps. Along the rims of the armour, the edges are bordered with an engraving to unify the entire set. Decorated in Celtic knots and a Celtic Lion on the chest to symbolize protection and power, the effect is an impressive looking piece of armour fit for a king.

Wool Cloak

Made from a 78% wool blend, this deep red coloured cloak is made from heavy and durable cloth, making it water-tight except under extreme circumstances. Having undergone a light felting process, you can expect this cloak to withstand the abuse from a LARP without pulling apart. Wear this cloak attached to the King’s Leather Armour at the shoulders to add a regal touch that pulls the entire look together.

Embroidered Tunic

This half-sleeved tunic is made from heavy and durable cloth that drapes well and can be expected to withstand the abuse from a LARP or reenactment. Embellished with golden embroidery and secured shut with celtic knot buttons and leather clasps on the front, this tunic adds comfort and a regal touch that is an essential part of this armour, cloak and tunic trio.
