shoes look ok


Pmd you re soft kit
There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

IF you are looking to join Regia then i would suggest you discuss this with you new GL / AO (ditto the vike). One groups idea of perfect may be wildyly different to another.

The shoes are not a pattern i recogise (but not a particularly clear picture) as always ask the seller what they are based on and go from there. Who are they coming from?

If you want to buy soft kit then debs is probably the best choice (certainly can't think of better), but most dark age soft kit is made by the wearer or another member fo thier group for trade (not as strong a trader element as in the WotR circuit).

The tailoring/shaping for earlier stuff is a ton simpler than C15th, most people can diy with a wee bit of guidance.

Where are you based?

thanks nathan, im based in crawley which is between brighton and gatwick airport basically. i have had an invite from regia, so thats who ill be going with, i can make kit however the problem is that i have so many orders on with the armour being off season its so difficult for me to make anything, i have also got my girlfriend into 15th century so ive had to sort her kit too as well as lots of commisions on the armour.
really im after a nice basic wool tunic that would be ok for a soldior as well as the saxon trousers, do you have a contact for debs?

thanks :D

(As mentioned , iffy picture would have to see something better to be sure) bear in mind regia is 950-1066 and conquest tends towards somewhat later.
