comment Plate armour worn by men-at-arms fighting on foot 1380-1415
A very nice answer, but if it were to be accepted: I need some resources that prove what you say - some history books, particular findings or iconography. Also, the question specificly targets met at arms fighting on foot, while you wrote that they "had to have" a horse - perhaps in England there was no armoured infantry during the period I mentioned? Im no specialist on England ;)

Poland would be nice, but its not a necessity. I want to get an idea about how popular plate armour was, and how acurrate are the modern depictions of the era, where plate is quite well spread even amongst common footmen.

comment Riveted mail - flat or round rings? Die cut rings mixed with riveted ones?
@Sardathrion - I cant edit it yet :) But i will try to retag some questions. Also, I think we could use some more tags, like "clothing" or "material-culture" for all those questions like "What cutlery was used in the middle ages" and similar

comment Adapting clothes, weapons, tools and customs from other nations in the middle ages - judging plausability
Well, im interested in the highest versimilitude possible ;) I tried to write my question this way, hoping that you could show me a scientific procedure that would allow me to determine whats the best fit to fill in blank holes. I feared that asking specific questions would be too localized (example: asking about a specific model of gauntlet in a specific timeframe and location) or too broad (example: what types of gauntlets were used in 1350-1450, by whom, and please include findings and pictures) for Q & A format... We want to do educational shows and need to be accurrate historically.

comment Life in the middle ages for ordinary people?
+1 to Mark C. Wallace. Plus, Id say this is quite similar to "how did they cope without electricity and cars"? They simply didnt know that things could be different. Also I wouldnt say that religious institutions "started to gain power". Religion has been a powerful thing since the very beginning of culture, and still is - just watch the middle eastern problems. To conclude, Id vote for closing or rephrasing the question. It makes too many assumptions that are arguable and its far too broad

comment Linen doublets around 1380-1410, middle and eastern Europe
Our re-enactment community is quite the strict one and we are trying to be as authentic as possible. If history leaves me no choice, Ill be sweating in wool ;) But first I want to make sure I absolutely have to :D

Yes, Darek is right about almost everything :) Im reconstructing in Poland, in Wielkopolska, and I want to participate in the Grunwald re-enactment. I will be chceking on wool and linen production in Poland and Ill try to compare them to England, but as far as I know, linen was made almost everywhere in Poland at that time. Thanks for your input, lets see if anyone lese has something to say :)

Im interested in historical reenactment and currently Im working on reconstructing a soldier fighting for Sędziwój z Ostroroga, who fought at Grunwald (Tannenberg). Most of the reenactors use wool, but i think its a bit too warm with all the layers of clothing a soldier wore. Thats why Im trying to confirm wheter using only wool is historical or just a trend/myth among reenactors :)
