Brigandine, leather, Paris, late 1400's | Flickr. Unlike armour for the torso made from large plates, the brigandine was flexible, with a degree of movement between each of the overlapping plates. The rivets, or nails, attaching the plates to the fabric were often decorated, being gilt, or of latten, and sometimes embossed with a design. Medieval brigandines were essentially a refinement of the earlier coat of plates, which developed in the late 12th century.
