Our Sackville leggings are based on the field garniture of Thomas Sackville, 1st Earl of Dorset. A beautiful armor currently part of The Wallace Collection, 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). I get a special kick out of adapting his armor for all of us plebeians. 

Our model is 5'8 and wearing a size S in high-waisted, regular inseam.

Great Fit

I like these leggings for weekend lounge wear. They fit well, and they look awesome.
Only reason I deducted a star was because they turn white where there is stretch. As a person with broad curves, this is something I don't like to have happen in my leggings. Do they pass the squat test? Absolutely! But they turn white, too. If you don't know, this makes the colors less vibrant looking, and it makes me feel like I'm wearing something not designed for my shape.
But overall, I do like.them a lot, and I would probably buy them again!

Best. leggings. Ever.

These are incredible! I went with the high waist in Medium, based on the size guide. They are not see through so feel free to wear with a shorter top, and the print makes them very flattering!

Fit perfectly, but color slightly different.

I really wish there was an option for half-stars, because these leggings really are wonderful! I was worried about them not fitting right, but they fit perfectly! The only reason I am not giving this five stars is because the lighter "metal" looks far more yellow in person, as opposed to the subtle, almost bronze-y gold pictured above. Still lovely, and would buy from here again!

These are my favorite leggings!

My wonderful husband ordered these for me as a surprise and they are easily my favorite leggings in the drawer. It takes all my self-control not to wear them to every HEMA practice because I want to keep them looking pretty and not wear them out too soon. :P

I'm about 120lbs with a 25.5" waist and 34" hips so these were ordered in XS, but the fabric stretches considerably for me in the thigh and seat areas, so the print contrast is a bit reduced there. Looks great everywhere else, though!

These leggings are super breathable, which is important when I'm sparring and covered from head to toe in protective gear. They also make great daily wear and I always get compliments!

Fabulous!

I belong to a medieval recreation organization. One of my primary activities in this organization is to do armored fighting. I have always worn some kind of close fitting garment that my leg armor would then go over, so as to prevent chaffs, cuts, scratches and such caused by the armor on bare skin.

When I saw the kickstarter fo Lorica Clothing I was immediately interested. I supported the endeavor and have now two pairs of leggings. Not only do they more than adequately protect my legs from various "armor bites" but they look fabulous! Many, many times prior to putting on my leg armor bystanders have oohed and ahhed over how cool the leggings look. I have been bragging them up to other fighters and know that others are catching the "Lorica" fever as well!

Can't say enough about the quality, fit and appearance of these wonderful leggings!
