Greetings friends
I've made my own suggestions on tread what I add few days ago, but I decide to add it also here. I think, that my suggestions exactly follow this topic, so here they are:

A have some suggestions about what could be added in Mordhau. All these items are based on late medieval and renaissance paintings and iluminations. These items are also for me significant for this time period and I’ll be delight, if they would be added in Mordhau. I really missed them.

  • DOUBLET
    Actual model of Doublet in Mordhau is more like the doublet’s later version – wams on this picture

    Wams.jpg

Real doublet is part of wear and it’s a piece of clothing whose main function is to hold hosen. Doublet is clamped with fitted hips and is fastened to buttons or strings on Vittore Carpacio’s gondollieri.

  • POURPOINT
    There ia also quite similar wear to doublet named pourpoint, which evolved from gambeson. Its quite similar to doublet, but is longer and it deosn’t hold hosen.

Purpoint (2).jpg

  • SHORT CLOACK - SHOULDERS
    The other part of italian wear is short, and it is weared to protect from sun and dust.

  • SLEEVES - ARMS
    Sleeves are also a very important part of an outfit. In renaisance Italy, there were six main types of sleeves.

It's not necessarily 15th century but since this is the armor thread closest to the top I'll put my suggestions here. These are some (imho) essential options we are missing right now to make more complete and historically accurate builds.

Longer mail coats/hauberks:

Long mail coat:
ChainmailCoat1.jpg

Long hauberk:
ChainmailCoat2.jpg

More surcoat/tabard variants

Notice the wide fit and extended shoulder area:
Surcoat1.jpg

Long sleeve surcoat:
Surcoat2.jpg

Mail + surcoat (Medium armour with surcoat!):
Surcoat3.jpg

Decorated/strapped variants:
Surcoat4.jpg

Brigandine variants:

Brigandine1.jpg

Brigandine2.jpg

Brigandine3.jpg

Leg armour:

Fluted chausses (we have so many fluted pieces, but not legs):
Legs1.jpg

Make Brigandine legs great (again), this could be achieved by making the leather bits at the top recolourable in the same colours as the brigandine itself.
legs2.jpg!

Clean chausses (because we need all-purpose heavy legs to go with some of the cleaner-looking chest plates):
legs3.jpg

Articulated leg plates (hussar chausses):
legs4.jpg

Splinted legs variations (medium leg armour) these would both have arms as well:
legs5.jpg

legs6.jpg

Hats:

Merchant's muffin cap (feathered and unfeathered variants):
Hat1.jpg

Wool peasant cap with laces:
Hat2.jpg

Jester and Bard hats:
hat3.jpg

Gauntlets:

Pretty happy with the collection of gauntlets as it is, but I'd like to see some clamshell styled ones:
clam-shell-gauntlets.jpg

More/better low level leg armour:

Padded leg guard (like the padded vambrace arms but for legs instead):
Lightlegs1.jpg

Padded shin guard:
Lightlegs2.jpg

Merchant's pants with wool shin/ankle cover (variants with or without brooches/pins):
lightlegs3.jpg

Light/no chest armour:

Merchants shirt (slightly fancier than normal shirt + patterned stitches):
Merchant1.jpg

Merchants shirt and merchant tunic w/shoulder cloth:
merchant2.JPG

Various improvement suggestions to existing armour pieces:

Remove the white square where the emblem goes from the coat of plates skirts please. Either remove it completely or make it the same colour as the base of the skirt. It's the only reason why I don't equip them on more builds.

I would love it if you removed or added new options without the non-recolourable leather parts that are present on many waist skirts. They make them look heavy and the leather often doesn't match recoloured leather parts on other pieces. It really restricts creativity and looks unrealistic, as most medieval skirts didn't have those leather trims at all. I'm talking about the outer strips on (among others) the segmented and split waist items.

Another semi-unrelated suggestion, but please keep the fantasy items to a minimum. Many of the skins for weapons (and some for armour as well) that were added later are blatantly ahistorical, fantasy or ceremonial items that should have no place on the battlefield.

And that's all I can think of right now. I really hope the developers consider these as they are, imho, essential in a lot of builds, from early medieval soldiers to gothic knights to peasants and merchant builds.

Loving the game just went over 1k hours recently, and many more hours to come in the future. Many of these were spent customising my mercenaries :)

I totally agree
these ideas especially about the adding extended shoulder area, longer hauberks, surcoats and tabards are awesome.

I am also little bit upset from adding fantasy items like those waist skirts. I almost never use them in my character customization, because If you are at least little bit interesting in history of armor, you find it really awkward and unwieldly.

I respect, that somebody like it and many characters with this kind of wear looks really awesome, but for me it is only pseudo-historical desing stuff, what more fits to the fantasy games.

I would appriciate if the developers consider at least some of this item to add in the game.

Thank you very much, I try to set up these suggestions on historical facts, because I think, that increase the quality of this brilliant game.
