Throughout Europe, it was common to see an Arming Jacket, such as this one worn under armor, especially during the 15th and 16th centuries. It was designed in such a way that heavy duty pieces of armor could even be sewn into the jacket to provide maximum protection. While Italian white armor doublets were typically longer, extending generously to the upper thigh, German gothic arming doublets tended to be considerably shorter. Since these jackets were considered as attractive as they were practical, even civilians could be seen wearing them in Italy in the 15th century. They signified nobility, and who wouldn't want to look a little more important?

This stunning White Arming Jacket boasts a large quilted pattern with jack chains down the front. It is the perfect piece to wear to represent the 15th or 16th century.
