Custom Gothic Armor made in 
the Italian style for export

The Gothic Style Armor made in Italian style is one of the most common styles of armor for its time.  It has a simplistic elegance about it, with its smooth graceful fluting and handsome rounded shape. An example of this style suit is at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, The Royal Armories in Leads, England, and another at the Churburg Museum. This was a medium to high grade of armour in its time yet was produced in large quantities by the Italians for export. It would have had a nice one piece Italian sallet with visor and simple Italian legs.

Custom High Gothic 1480 with
Punched Brass Trim

This was my first complete suit of armour that I ever made. That was in 1993, and there are many things I would do different but it is still a very nice suit . I originally made it to look like the famed "Sigismund of Tyrol" suit, but after seeing the suit in Vienna Austria a couple of years back and now having video and pictures of the suit (inside and out) I feel confident the next one will be much better.
