The 1500s Italian type?
@MaximusPrimal So if you're going for accuracy, then this would cost you upwards of 6,000 dollars, for full plate armor. But, if you just want something cheap, they run for around 600 for Indian replicas. On the other hand, you could always do an older form of armor, say, early Crusades, then it's all chainmail which can run on the cheap end for about 80 dollars for a shirt, 200 for the pants, 40 for the gloves, and 40 for the coif. And remember, these are all prices for inaccurate bussed mail, and not riveted. Then you'd just have to make or buy a surcoat and a helmet.
@Ace The Lorica Segmentata is a very nice form of armor, but I wouldn't say it's medieval.
@Jcton Yes, that is a glairing example of replica inaccuracy. Who would want a helmet that exposes the bottom of your face?
As for myself, ,y favorite types of armor are the Sugarloaf Greathelm, the Visored Sugarloaf Greathelm, and the Frogmouth helmet. As for armor, it's got to be the mid to late 1300s European armor specifically the ones used in the final crusade. What can I say, I'm a sucker for chainmail.
Here are some replicas for context.
