- Kind of like the German Landesknecht's?
Not to sound like an authenticity goober, but Landsknecht is very
similar to other Western European fashions in that it has
slashed proto-doublets and hose (pluterhosen). The screwed up thing
is that Polish coats are long and flairing with inset sleeves and and
other "modern " tailoring techniques so Ukrainian has this, plus
poofy pants called charovoy (Tartar), slit sleeves reminesent of 15th
C itaian fashions and hats that are simply unique. I see no reason at
all why pockets for plates (especially plastic) cant be sewn into the
inner lining to create a "hardsuit". It would be very, very cool. I
do recommend the book I cited earlier simply because it is quite
illustrative, if post-period. I personally wear a Persian caftan over
my hardsuit but thats because I like doing things not done
before....besides, I like Persian. Please keep me informed about how
the Cossack coat comes out. Very, very cool idea! 'dak
