Welcome to Gambesons.com, a website for standard and custom gambesons.  The following pages will explain how they are made, what process I used to design them, and what features and colors they can be ordered with.   This is all done on a small scale, not mass produced.  Thus if you’re looking for something quick and utilitarian, look elsewhere.  If you are seeking a unique, durable, (mostly) historically accurate gambeson to complement your authentic harness, then please read on.

Fancy gambeson

I make each one gambeson myself, one at a time.  It’s a laborious process that I take great pains to do to the best of my abilities.  I work hard to see to it that you get the best value for the hard earned money you spend on my work.  I’d like to think that my work is more akin to a Ferrari than a Ford, if you’ll excuse the self aggrandizing.

This new and (hopefully) improved website will be clear and concise about what it is that I make and why you should consider a garment made by me.

Please feel free to leave comments where possible, or contact me directly if you have any questions.
