Who Asked This Joker Uchelwyr were from all over Wales, not just Gwynedd – land owning class – lords or noblemen. Not sure why you think the figure NCS posted looks to be particularly Irish influenced? Is it because of the green?

Good to know about locations etc.  As for why, the tunic is too long.  Falls more in line with Irish fashion.  So this man is from south west Wales maybe?  Also, Britons tended to wear trousers.  This guy has bare legs.  The rest of his equipment is fine to my mind.  Even the nasal helm should be fine.  It was suggested that they didn’t have nasal helms but this might have been liberated from an enemy warrior or something.
