The Renaissance Doublet for HEMA came to existence with a view to meet the expectations of enthusiasts of HEMA jackets with a strong historical vibe. The design of our HEMA doublet refers to fencing doublets from the Renaissance period.

This doublet is dedicated for HEMA training of light and medium intensity, with the use of light simulators like saber, messer, or rapier. It makes a perfect set of HEMA gear with our pants: Meyer or Light.

Our Renaissance HEMA doublet does not have much stitching and it has characteristic shoulder wings on sleeves and a segmented peplum. On the back it has an adjustable belt for better fitting to the waist. On the elbows it is equipped with mountings for Shell or PRO overlays. The doublet is fastened with velcro and zipper.

Our Master version of the doublet is made from fabric of 350N puncture resistance. The peplum consists of 8 segments; the 2 on the front are slightly sheared. The jacket has a lining in the form of distance mesh. The jacket stands out thanks to its contrastive stitching. This solution gives the this jacket an even stronger historical vibe than the Renaissance Doublet. Just like our Attila jacket, the doublet has a front flap and special pockets with cushioning foams (included in the set).

The design of our HEMA doublet refers to historical examples of arming and fencing doublets. This means it is perfectly fitted to body shape, emphasizing its triangular shape. What is more, wings on the sleeves visually expand the shoulders, underlining the torso. Apart from the great look, this jacket also provides good mobility - don’t wait and check it yourself!



What is a doublet?


A doublet (or a pourpoint) is a short, tight clothing for men, usually worn under an outer garment. It was popular since the Middle Ages and, depending on the historical period, its form and purpose could differ.

It probably derives from military clothing, used as one of the layers worn under a chain mail. In the 14th century, when shorter garments gained popularity, short doublets slowly started to replace long cottes.

Pourpoints of this type were always fitted to body shape and, depending on the fashion, they could be shorter, longer, fastened with buttons or laced in an overcast method. Sleeves could be simple or fancy, for example decorated with puffs.Originally doublets were made of only one layer of fabric and their main task was to hold the hose. Later, it evolved in the separate version worn as an outer quilted clothing for fighting.
