Leather Surcoats & Tunics


Leather Surcoats

Surcoats became popular during the Crusades when European knights began wearing them to deflect the desert heat of the Holy Land from their mail hauberks. Over time, the addition of heraldic devices evolved as a means of identifying friend from foe in the deadly confusion of battle. We've blended fact and fantasy to offer you a garment sure to turn heads and inspire murmurs of admiration.

Constructed of fine quality garment leather or suede, we stitch our surcoat completely by hand.

In traditional fashion, the front and back are split for riding. Features include the stitched collar trim and reinforcement at all points of stress, including laced areas, riding splits, and shoulders. Open-front surcoats have a trimmed placket.

For "Large Views" that nicely show some of our standard construction features, see the Custom Surcoat photos at right (top and center).

The surcoat pictures shown at left have grommets and adjustable lacing at the sides, with laces at the front offering the option of an open, swashbuckling look or a more traditional closed front.

Champion's Surcoat

Our Champion's Surcoat is our finest offering in leather surcoats. Using top-quality leather, we cut the front and back panels as single, large sections with no piecing or seams. Literally dozens of yards of heavy saddlers thread add handsome, hand-stitched accents to hems and trims.

This surcoat features a keyhole-style neckline trimmed and reinforced with an added layer of leather completely hand-stitched around all edges for strength and great looks.

At the sides, the raw edges are folded under along the entire length of the surcoat, providing a strong, smooth, double-layer finishing all the way from shoulders to hem. The armholes and side edges from waist to hem are hand-stitched, with grommets from underarm to waist for ease of adjustment and wear.

The raw edges of both riding splits are fully encased and finished with double rows of hand-stitching; and the splits feature rip-stops for additional strength and excellent wearability. In corresponding fashion, the bottom hem is folded under and finished with a double row of hand-stitching. Click the "More Photos" link for additional views and close-ups of detail work.

Our Champion's Surcoat is designed to provide the ultimate in comfort, strength, durability, and great looks.

Leather Ring Tunic

Large View

Large View

This Ring Tunic is an original design by The Inner Bailey, created for Richard the Lion Heart in a professional stage production of "A Lion in Winter". Hand-stitched trim accents at the neck and arms make this light armor fit for a king!

Shown here in dark brown 4-oz suede, the rings are sturdily supported by black leather riveted straps, and form a decorative diamond-shaped pattern on the front and back. The absence of rings across the midsection allows you to wear a belt or swordbelt comfortably.

The sides are grommeted, making it easy to put on and remove and to give a bit of size adjustability.

Suede Colors: Dark Brown, Tan, Rust, Black
Leather Colors: Brown, Black
Hardware:
Nickel or Brass

Ring Tunic (Garment leather or Suede): Sizes S/M/L - $500
