Here's my armor so far!

The brown surcoat is made of the final fabric, although it will be stiffer and have decorative brass rivets all over. Everything else is a placeholder. The gorget will be shaped like the left half of this pattern piece. The on-the-fly adjustments didn't get made to both sides.
My plan is to use dark leather for the armor, and line and trim it with silk twill.
I'm 95% done with his post-defection clothing, but I didn't get any good photos of the full ensemble with the scar. I will take some before too long.
