consists of wrap pants and a loose-ish tunic, and appears to be made of relatively light silks

The Tunic appears to be made of something light and breathable, possibly silk but not 'shiny'. It falls to the knees and is split in the middle. It may have a basic, boat neckline, only higher. The sleeves reach a little bit past the wrist, maybe even to the second joints of the fingertips. The fabric does pool under some of the odds and ends.
The trousers seem to be a basic pair of wrap pants but the leg armour covers the majority of them. They are apparently made of a deeper maroon than that of the tunic.
Helmet, shoulder pads, upper leg protectors, knee pads, chest armour, belt, and vambraces.
The shoulder pad straps are apparently leather or something like that, and buckle under the arms.
The facecloth appears to fall rather loosely, but not excessively so, over the face, and is hooked to something on the Helm.
Bits from an Easterling extra
The Easterling costume was one of the more comfortable costumes I wore, apart from the "Mk. 1" breastplates which had a sharp point at the end which could be hazardous if you sat down too quickly. "Mk. 2" breastplates changed this so that the sharp point was "hinged" on a piece of leather. The costume was loose and layered, so it kept you cool when it was hot and warm when it was cold. The helmet provided good visibility, and was much better than the Uruk Hai mask/helmet setup, which was terrible - you could only see directly in front of you as an Uruk Hai. The armour moved freely and provided good protection (getting hit with prop weapons hurts :^P). It was also very easy to eat in
