Try a leine + maybe a leather jerkin of some sort underneath the mail. It will be better because of 2 things:
1. Probably only rich folk could afford mail. And since it's somewhat a custom based on a few obscure fragments of sagas and some high-cross bas-relief that the rich go leine-clad, while the trews and lend are reserved to common folk, it will be more suitable to combine rich dress with a hauberk.
2. It simply looks good being accurate still.
Seriously though, Any idea what pattern to make the leather jerkin with ?
