The 13th century saw the first ballads and sagas about Robin Hood whose motives grew purer and purer during the march of the centuries. The English robber from Nottingham didn't turn into the figure we know and love today the man who robs from the rich to give to the poor until the 17th century.
The Nottingham jerkin is based on the numerous representations of this historical figure. Made of high quality black suede, the Nottingham jerkin features decorative lacing in light brown at the front. The broad V-neckline leads into the lacing that allows you to put the jerkin on. The skirts below the waistline provide protection for your thighs without restricting freedom of movement. The padded neckline and shoulder wings provide extra protection for critical body parts your chest and shoulders.
