Finn,
Have you gotten any info on who makes something close to what these brigandines look like?

Kevin,

I've checked all of the popular reenactor reproduction goods sights and catalogs, and not surprisingly, none of them make this garment. I may contact my friend, who is making me a cotun/acton, and see if he might be up for it. If you find any, let me know. I was hoping others would chime in on this discussion, who may have a source or who have made one themselves.

Kevin,

Yes, I saw these two. They just don't look like the surviving examples in Scotland or the illustrations from Derricke.

I know its a stretch but check out the green one it could resemble the one from the Chieftan in Derricke. Its sorta got that pattern what do you think? Maybe if you sent them pictures they could modify it somewhat it even has optional shoulders.

Finn,
What color do you think the one from the Derricke illustration is?

I would not want to speculate, based on Derricke's illustration for color. Based on the two Scotish examples, they appear to be an unbleached muslin or canvas, tan in color I would guess.
