So I am about to get serious about putting together a medieval outfit, and from my name, you can guess my style is more of a stealthy outlook on the whole thing. Green undergarments with dark brown to black leather pieces...

I'm skipping to the point much too quickly. I'm still not sure exactly what this site specializes in, and due to the original settings and layout, I'm not sure what to expect. It doesn't seem to be the medieval crowd in here, but my chances aren't going to be hurt by trying to see how you folks are.

So now that you know what I expect to make/build, and my uncertainty of this website, I'll add a third factor in any possible responses you might have for me. Any good (meaning quality, yet relatively inexpensive) sites selling leather pieces are welcome. My best friend once showed me a site a long time ago with great assortments of pieces, and many of them. But I cannot find that website, or any others like it. Basic leather chestpieces, gaunlets, bracers, and shoulderpieces are all in the question. Possibly greaves, and most likely boots.

I hope that provides enough details about my situation and what I'm looking for, but I'll provide a few pictures as well for examples:

So, in short, purple makes you nervous and you're crippled by dread of being misunderstood and you're looking for a supplier of finished mostly-medieval leather pieces?

Gotcha covered:

I found these by googling "leather pauldrons buy". Swap out "pauldrons" for a similar armor-specific word and see what else turns up.
