Chainmail Coordinates

Recommended Posts

So I have the fortune to have a blacksmith as a family friend. The dude makes full suits for most of the local jousters. Heavy stuff.

 

My father worked with him for a good number of years, and I have had the luck of inheriting, if by osmosis, their mail skills. Even better, I own a steel 4-in-1 hauberk; one of the short sleeved versions, but it reaches mid-thigh on me.

 

So I've been trying to figure out what sort of garb I should wear with the mail. Now, I've brainstormed for quite a while. I broke and searched online; unfortunately, if you aren't very specific with your searches, you get a bunch of useless pictures of pieces barely qualified as lingerie.

 

My question for you all is: Does anyone with experience in this sort of situation have advice? I'm a little out of inspiration.

Chainmail is the blue jeans of the medieval world: it goes with everything.

 

I suggest you read the World Book, choose a culture or country that appeals to you, then model your garb from the clothing suggestions there.

Blue jeans do not go with other denim, chainmail goes with other chainmail. ;)
