そして何よりも特徴的なのはその装いだった。暗色の外套を纏い、身体の各所を、ベルトのようなもので締め付けている。おまけに右手右足と首に錠が施され、そこから先の引きちぎられた鎖が伸びているときたものだ。まるで途方もない大罪を犯した咎人かーーさもなくば、猟奇的な被虐快楽者のような出で立ちである。

Hi. What does ときたものだ mean? After some searches, it seems to have something to do with とくる, which is used for emphasis, right? And what would be the function of 〜たものだ? As far as I know, 〜たものだ is used for recollection of the past emotionally. But this is not the case here.

Thank you.

~ときた/くる is for emphasizing there, such like というようなすごい装い/出で立ちだ.

Thank you.
So the もの refers to 出で立ち?

And ときたものだ and とくるものだ are the same?

I don't think so. It would be the same もの as ~たものだ for "used to~".

No. くる can't be used there. …とくるものだから、~, e.g., …鎖が伸びている、とくるものだから、まるで途方もない大罪を犯した咎人か――さもなくば、猟奇的な被虐快楽者のように見える。) is valid, though.
