What does Stormcast Eternals wear, when they aren't in combat

I'm actually writing further parts of my background (mostly from Yelenas standpoint) and I'm struggeling with one point after I think I miss some information about Stormcast Eternals. I don't know where to post it, after this forum doesn't have a loresection, so I use my blog for this.

I have thought about, that some Stormcasts had come to my own continent (not through a realmgate) and now where trapped there until opening a gate to Azyr or dieing in combat. And they found surviving humans.

After we know, that Stormcast Eternals are modified humans (not ghosts in armour like the Thousand Sons in 40k) there is the point what a stormcast would wear as clothes, when not fighting in combat. I don't think that they wear there armour 24/7 (if there is something like constant time in AoS). We have read that stormcasts were fighting for days, weeks or more at the same battlefield, but even when they are nearly immortal they should have to eat and sleep  some time (and I don't think that sleeping inside the armour is that confortable) and have to do some body hygiene (if they don't want to smell like worshippers of nurgle after some time).

Do they wear tunics, dresses or shirt and trousers? Is there some point of background I didn't know, after mostly reading Battletomes?

Another point is, what do Stormcasts Eternals wear underneath there armour. I think the only thing we know is, that they have those black cloth or rubber? parts beween there armourplates (mostly visible in the kneepart), so they can move. But I don't know if this is they parts are connected to the armour itself or if they are wearing some sort of bodysuit. It would be a little strange if the warrior would completely naked when stripping of the armourplates.

Perhaps somebody could help me with my questions. It would help me with my writing.

I imagine Stormcast as those who essentially most of the time are in their armour. Like they stroll around the keeps, castles, etc in full armour, always ready in case needing to be called into action.

Hence, the only times they might be outside their armour would be for feasts, sleeping (although during war, might even sleep in their armour) and showering.

I would imagine when they are outside their armour, they wear pretty plain stuff for the most part. Perhaps the more 'noble' ones like Tempest Lords might fancy a bit of a dress up with the latest fashion. Otherwise I see them more like monks, pretty plain, boring clothes, as they have no real need to have wordly desires as their primary purpose is to fight in Sigmar's name.

Yeah, looks like the same as for Space Marines in 40k. And even those have there human sides.

I think the answer fits the question, what they wear when they didn't wear there armour, but the question, what they wear underneath there armour is still open. I'm not so familiar with medieval stuff. Perhaps they wear the same stuff a knight in those times weared? But the armour lookes a little tighter than medieval knights armour. So do they wear some close underneath, some sort of mostly black bodysuit, some sort of underwear (however those lookes like), only some shorts (while women use some sort of bra, a corset or bandages to cover there chest) or are they really completely naked inside there armour?

Particular this part would be interesting in case of my story or should I just make something up and hope that it will work?

I would imagine padding and mail of some sort. May be cool to do some research on medieval armour to give yourself some inspiration. While not fighting maybe some kind of robes.

Very funny guys. Even some medieval underwear looks like a little like hammer pants, I don't think these would fit into the Stormcast Eternals Armor.

Sounds like the most propable for me. After we only see the platearmor and the that material we see in the jointparts of the armor, there could be perhaps some sort of thin padding, but not much room for many cloth underneath it.

I think I will use for my story some sort loincloth as underwear. In case of women some sort of bra like the witch Aelves wear at best, or bandages (didn't female archers use bandages so there chest (if I use the other world it will probably be censored, because I saw it in my last comment) won't prevent them from shooting with a bow. Don't think that this will work for a Stormcast in that way after the armor itself has a bulge in the chestpart.

In my last comment there was the point with some sort of corset, but the longer I think I would say that it could be a disadvantage because it could prevent the breathing.

One intereting point is, that when we are looking at female warriors in fantasysettings it often looks like they would wear metallic armour on there bare skin, so it really could be (after AoS is a fantasy setting), that they could wear nothing at all unterneath the stormcasts platearmor.
