One of the things I'd love to do is go with riveted mail, for the historical accuracy... but I'd also want it to be light. The hauberk that Historic Enterprises has that's only 15 lbs would be a good start, though I'd also want a coif and chauses to match. Everything else I'm gradually adding anyway. :)
