Historic enterprises arming doublet with hand made hemp points
Greater London
virtually new condition, very beautiful aubergine/purple heavy linen, with a waist 32, so the chest will be an average waist of 32. The actual chest measurement is 40 BUT this garment needs the chest to be loose so you can fight.

The garment label says XS but the original label says small but has been crossed out neatly with a laundry pen, and replaced with XS, I can’t remember what that was about, I bought it for my club rather than for me and a few years a go.

PLUS 16 hemp pink-purple points with hand made and hand attached gilded brass points (very beautiful!) made by a specialist English point maker - I forgot her name! But those points are genuinely expensive. By sixteen I mean all the points you can see in the photo that are attached to the doublet plus another six.
The doublet is made to order by historic enterprises for (including an arming coif which I am not including in the sale) US$275.
So, including the gorgeous points, I'm asking GB£120 including insured delivery.
If you take other items that I am currently selling (both reenactment stuff and, separately, HEMA stuff) it will make me the more amenable to a DEAL!
