I just got mine and i have to say, the chain mail that sewn in the tunic is kind of cheap looking. Would have been better with out it. That being said, the cross embroidered on the front looks top notch. I don't care for the hood either, but that's just me. I think this tunic should be a little cheaper. Nice color. You don't need to wear a chain mail shirt for the tunic because it has long sleeves.
