Show your subarmalis!
That's what I was thinking. If you can't see it don't worry about it. Starting out that works well, but later on you may want to consider an accurate one, that way you can wear it when not wearing armor. Helps keep warm, etc.

Agrimensor... I like your design and how you applied the ptregae. One question. What are the 4 rivets going to around the neck?

They attach the padding under the subarmalis.

**REVIVED THREAD!!** Tongue

Here's my effort, which I just finished last night. I'm working off Sander's design with a few modifications: It's 3 layers of wool sandwiched between 2 layers of linen on either side for the base layer. The shoulder doublers include another insert square of 3 wool and 2/2 linen, and that square is layered on a 'stair' or an additional 8 layers of wool, with another 2/2 layers of linen to remove the shoulder 'slope' as much as possible. (That's a total of 14 layers of wool and 12 layers of linen at it's thickest point - the quilting packs it down though, so it's not as bulky as you'd think). I'll post construction pics if you're really curious...

I opted for separate sewn-on lace-holes rather than the original design that was punched through the side. I figure if there's a catastrophic failure on the lacing system I'd rather just sew on a new lace hole rather than have to attempt to fix the entire piece. It's also quilted at 10cm. spacing rather than 5cm like in Sander's design because I think 10cm is adequate and his appears to be machine-stitched, whereas mine is 100% hand-stitched with linen thread (I built it to last). I forgot how much of a pain in the glutius it is to hand-quilt...The bonus is that I can always sew on pturges later if I want to be 'promoted' later on. 8+)

That´s more or less the design I have been thinking of being plausible.

Very nice - I may just ask you to do me one! I like the look of the sewn in shoulders, too. Thanks for sharing.

That's just what I was thinking, Francis!
Ryan, is there any chance that you would be prepared to make one, or even two (if Francis wanted) and ship them over to the UK?

Honestly I hadn't thought about it; I made one because I needed it for my kit, so I wasn't keeping track of how much I spent on supplies and such. I can guarantee that Kult of Athena or other merchants would be a great deal cheaper than what I'd have to charge - in part because it appears they're using padded cotton and sewing machines, wheras I'd be hand-stitching and using wool. It'd also take me a lot longer - I think I did mine start to finish in...three weeks, a month maybe? The pattern was also custom fit to me so I may need to rework it. I'm 5'7" (Sorry that's in 'Yank') with a 40" chest...how close is that to the size you'd need?

My new one for late roman purposes, a knee-elbow hamata will cover it. 5 layers of 100% wool, hand stitched. Form based on late 4th c. Egyptian ivory showing a siege, quilting pattern based on the much known Mars-relief.
