The use of leather and metal protections is believed to be the reason why Victorian people thought there were "studded" armors. This confusion has come in many cases up to the present day where we can easily find references in role games or literature. The truth is there are historical samples of leather or cloth protections riveted to metal bands to reinforce the structure what probably led to error to our ancestors. It´s a logical evolution in the transitional armour age and some examples can be seen on the Günther von Schwarzburg´s (1349) and Sir Thomas Cheyne´s (1375) funerary brasses what gives a wide range on dating this protections.

A very similar protection can be found on the Sir Thomas Cheynes´s effigy, where rows of rivets can be seen on the outside of the piece.
