Spat
« on: Nov 24, 2014, 07:28 PM »
Currently I'm debating if my armor will be light or medium and the deciding factor comes down to how difficult a spat is to make, or expensive it is to buy, to cover my laces. Anyone have any suggestions or patterns? I'm currently wearing these boots. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000H7WS1A/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

They should be easy to make. I could get with you and make a pattern off of mine if you would like.

That'd be helpful thanks! That'll make it so I can do Light armor, giving me more places to put pouches for my Engineer gear

Xavior, the boots i have planned for order are similar to yours, minus the knobby bits on the bottom. i've already ordered and received these http://www.amazon.com/Forum-Novelties-Steampunk-Suede-Spats/dp/B004QQ358S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1416987390&sr=8-1&keywords=boot+spats&pebp=1416987397005 in black. they are a little too big around for my legs but they have an elastic strip at the calf so i'm gonna have them taken in and then they should be perfect. super cheap. and the closure is velcro under false buttons. just an idea.

Oh, that'll work fine with my armor concept. Now I just need to find some gloves, and those I want local to get a good fit. Thanks!

The pattern (Minus the elasic closures and buttons) was Okayed by Kelan Ord as was my question about leather so you can make leather versions of these and use a different closure method of approvable design! I purchased the pattern pm me if interested in finding out where you can get it.

I bought a pair similar to these and covered up the logo's with armor plates. I used boot armor to cover up the bottom laces that weren't fully covered and shin armor to cover the logos on the gaiters. The nylon weathers up well too.

I couldnt help but notice your profile picture is a Legacy kit Vod. If you are going the legacy route your kit is automatically considered medium class armor per the legacy armor thread information.
