St. Gereon wears a cape and a tight-fitting surcoat with scalloped edges, worn very short in front and longer behind (erroneously called a cyclas); a popular fashion in Flanders, Northern France, England and Western Germany during the 1340s and early 1350s.
The three quarter sleeves of the hauberk belong to the 1330s/1340s.
Note the riveted coat of plates ending in a decorated edge, worn over the hauberk and a gambeson, which is split in the middle.
Gereon also wears an upstanding standard (mail collar), mail chausses, poleyns, proto-hourglass gauntlets, and carries a lance with a pennon.
The lack of plate for the limbs isn't uncommon for German armour of the period.
