Our Scudamore leggings are based on the field armor of Sir James Scudamore, currently on view at the The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Sir James was a prominent Elizabethan soldier, courtier, and enthusiastic jouster; he was praised in Edmund Spenser’s Faerie Queene (published 1596) as an example of chivalry personified. Channel knightly nobility in our take on this gorgeous armor!

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

First order

This is my first purchase and I am very satisfied with my order, I will definitely make more purchase from this shop in the future. The leggins fit perfectly for a size XS and the details of the armor design look even better in real life than in the pictures. I highly recommend this garment to historical fashion enthusiasts!


They’re beyond great. So cool and so comfy. I couldn’t be happier.

Love, love, love!

I'm an armored fighter in a medieval recreation organization. For years I wore sweat pants, compression tights, etc., as a base layer to protect my legs from incidental scrapes, digs, tears, etc., from the metal and buckles of the leg armor worn in combat.

I saw the kickstarter for Lorica Clothing and knew right away this was going to be a winner. As a result I know own two different pair of leggings, these being my first and most worn pair.

They are completely functional in protecting my legs from incidental injury by the armor itself and look absolutely smashing before putting on the armor and after taking it off. Many, many comments have been made over the year or so that I've been wearing them.

I highly recommend these leggings for whatever purpose you may have in mind. The material is durable and breathable, the fit and finish is impeccable and they wear beautifully. I thoroughly enjoy "going Medieval" in my Lorica leggings!

Thank you so much

Mine, or more accurately, my wife's arrived last week, and it is amazing! She loves it! Super comfy, great print quality. Well done.

I'm Impressed

I'm a bigger girl, and was worried about the fit, but they fit fantastic. The waist band is my favourite part. I have a huge issue with other leggings sliding down (damn you, lack of hips), but this one stays up and has a really comfy waist band.

Well worth every penny, I'm quite impressed.
