The medieval German woolen pourpoint is a replica of a 14th century gambeson based on German sources. Thanks to the use of new filling and cut-out, this pourpoint is super light and provides high mobility. The combination of those two factors with the accurate reproduction of the original shape makes this piece of medieval clothing work well - both during knight fights and reenactment of a civilian.
This 15th century gambeson doesn’t have a stand up collar, and its lower edge is finished with a semicircle.
Its a civil version of a linen pourpoint.
In the past, arming garments often worked as civil medieval clothing. This woolen pourpoint is one of examples – it is based on garments worn by soldiers. Just like linen version, this quilted doublet hives body a nice shape and brings out a chest of a wearer.
During the process of creation of this medieval aketon, we used two types of quilting. On the chest, arms and sleeves, the stitches are horizontal. From the waist down, the stitching on the German woolen pourpoint is vertical.
This German quilted doublet was created for the knight-fight enthusiasts. We kept this in mind while designing the new cut-out of the sleeve on this gambeson; so called "inverted elbow". This construction does not restrain the wearer’s moves while preventing the aketon to go up during arm swinging.
In default version, our gambeson is laced in points. You can change the closing of this pourpoint to buttons or overcast lacing.
This German woolen pourpoint was sewn from linen which was used for the outer layer as well as for the lining. Woolen felt serves in this gambeson as the filling and we used two thicknesses of the felt. The thicker layer on the chest (Y7b) and the thinner one on the rest of the pourpoint (Y7a). Thanks to that, this product can be used both by the enthusiasts of medieval combat and the people who reenact civilians.
