pourpoints and padding thickness
I have just read part of the new uploaded file on cotton (thanks
Christina!!) and something caught my eye:
1313: armourers' guild statutes specifies the thickness of padding for
garments worn under armour.
Any idea what this could be? We're toying around with a pourpoint-type
padded garment with filled vertical channels, a la Charles de Blois or
Black Prince and wonder how thick is thick whn stuffing the channels.
We won't be wearing it for warmth but for protection, with a leather
bringandine and other similar stuff (hopefully).
All the best,
