Italian Steel Wearable Full Suits of Armor

All the suits of armor shown below are steel, wearable and handmade in Italy. Each medieval armor set comes complete with stand as shown. The armor will fit an average person.

The suit of armor was worn over regular underclothes and was attached to the wearer using leather straps and buckles. Chainmail was used to protect areas that could not be protected with plate armor.

Typical plate armor usually consists of the helm, breastplate and backplate (cuirass with often attached faulds and tassets), gauntlets, pauldrons (or spaulders), vambraces, couters, sabatons (foot armor), greaves (to protect shins) and gorget, sometimes called a neckguard.
