Our Sackville dress is based on the field garniture of Thomas Sackville, 1st Earl of Dorset. A beautiful armor currently part of the Wallace Collection in London, it bears significant resemblance to the armor of Sir James Scudamore but for its blued steel: both armors were crafted in the Greenwich Royal Armories under the supervision of master armorer Jacob Halder.

Thomas Sackville himself was a man of somewhat questionable politics: he was a great advocate of "sumptuary laws," which is to say laws that only permitted fancy people to wear fancy things (for example, he dictated that only soldiers holding the rank of colonel or above should be permitted to wear silk and velvet). Thankfully, you don't need to be a colonel to wear this dress, though it is mighty fancy. 😉
