Damask Jerkin With Golden Edging
If you can't decide between "1001 Nights" and the high seas, you will love our damask jerkin with golden edging. Its handsome damask pattern in wine red tones is completely edged with golden Jacquard trim, and the front fastens with five elegant black frog closures. The cap sleeves, high stand-up collar and pointed skirt are all signs that this damask jerkin originated in the East – perhaps it traveled the Silk Road to reach Europe.

This is a beautiful jerkin, very stylish looking & nicely made. What the description doesn't tell you is that it is made of 100% polyester & dry clean only. It is fairly light weight, even though lined also in polyester. which is good to know if you're wanting to avoid over-dressing in hot weather events. My only critism is that the small, soft cord-knotted buttons & loops are arranged so it does-up the female way around & makes it tricky to do up the top button particulary. Also the little metal hook & loop clasp, at the top edge of the front coller, is very tricky to master. If you're planning to wear this over armour/gambeson I'd suggest choosing as size larger unless you're at the bottom of the size.
