Mail Armor Shirt

 

From the Celts of 300 BC to 18th century Asia, mail was one of the most prized items a warrior could own. The “Foe of Swords” probably derived the name “mail” from the Latin “Macula” meaning net. This shirt features 16 gauge links combined in the “international” pattern, with 4 links through a 5th, which was common to all European mail.

Faithfully copied from examples in museums and private collections, the diameter of each outer link is about 7/16”, and the inner link diameter is about 3/8”. Mail shirts fit up to a 54” chest, 33” long shirt, sleeves are approximately 18” and hang to just below the elbows on average height warriors.

We recommend keeping this butted mail shirt oiled when not in use.
