Mens Doublets, Medieval Vests and Renaissance Jackets from Dark Knight Armoury Mens Doublets, Medieval Vests and Renaissance Jackets from Dark Knight Armoury

Mens Jackets, Doublets & Vests

Throughout the medieval era, doublets and vests remained popular fashion choices. In keeping with that level of popularity, Dark Knight Armoury offers a number of medieval and Renaissance doublets and vests, which you can now use to compliment your own medieval or Renaissance look. The entire reason why doublets and vests remained so popular was their simplicity. A doublet is little more than a fitted mens jacket, and a vest is little more than a light, sleeveless jacket worn over the chest. They are so utterly simple, and yet so much can be done with them. Our own medieval and Renaissance doublets are just as versatile since they can complement a variety of looks, ranging from simple peasant to something as elaborate and grandiose as a nobleman or royalty. Some of our doublets can even be worn as a gambeson, which some doublets were actually used for in medieval times. Our vests are no less varied in their use. They work wonders for almost any look, and we carry such a broad variety that you can find pirate vests, peasant vests, and kingly vests, all right here! You can also find a number of our longer medieval coats in this category as well, given that a doublet is really just a short coat itself. If you want your own medieval or Renaissance look to be authentic no matter if it is noble, pirate, knight, or anything else then perhaps you should consider adding one of our medieval doublets or vests. They did stay in style for several hundreds of years and that has to count for something!
