Review of: Faux Mail Tunic and Coif Ensemble
Very nice and looks pretty real until you get close. Size ran a bit small but still manageable. Looks and wears great with my tunic and cape. Neighborhood children were frightened silly at halloween.

Review of: Brown Sporran w/ Braided Tassels
This has been a great addition to my Renaissance Festival garb. It works with my kilts as well as just being a nice side bag for essential accessories.

Review of: Medieval Low Boots
Really well made, soft, and comfortable. The soles are of a softer, less dense sort of rubber than I thought they would be but the overall construction quality leads me to believe they'll hold up well. The insoles within them are removable and replaceable if you so choose. They slip on easily, but are secure once on.

Review of: Swordsman Roll Down Boots
I purchase a pair of these a year ago and they have been one of my main articles of footwear since, everyday life and costuming both.
While I am on the short end, these boots are quite tall-reaching up most of my thigh if pulled tight. They quickly developed a fair bit of slack, though, and the tops usually are just a few inches above my knees.
The slack only gets to be a concern when you roll the cuffs down or are moving a lot: they sometimes will give way and sag much further down, especially in significant cold for some reason.
The inside of the boot is fairly sizable-by necessity to get your foot in, given the lack of parting with laces or straps. This can sometimes make your footing a little less stable, although wearing large, cushioning socks suck as thick wool socks or stockings or chauses remedies both this and the slack of the boots quite well. If you plan to wear the cuffs turned down frequently, I recommend considering a pair of garters worn just below the knee (which is period, anyways) .
Otherwise, it is at worst passable for historical accuracy, great as rainboots (pig leather is naturally water resistant) and even everyday wear, and at a good price for genuine leather boots of this height. On sale, the price is outstanding.

Review of: Royal Court Doublet
Very high quality, beautifully made piece. This is going to last through years of wear. I cannot wait to wear it at a Renaissance event I’m attending in December. Looks fantastic with the Cavalier Shoulder Cape, the Wayfarer Pants (Black) and the Adventurers Boots.

Review of: Leather Gauntlets
Very nice. They ran a bit large for me but not unreasonably so as to warrant their return. Qualtity seems to be excellent.

Review of: Crusader's Cape
I could not be more please. The cape is just the right length for me ( I am 6' tall) and it is well constructed of heavy cotton.

Review of: Viking Tunic - Woolen
I am 5'9 and 180lbs and the L/XL fits pretty well and I would describe it "comfortable large" on me. It is as its designed I believe to fit loosely. Stitching looks good. Wool blend is warm and robust. I haven't worn it long enough to judge itching etc

Review of: Hand-Woven, Hand-Stitched Men’s Manor Shirt
I'm in a long-term project of upgrading my Ren Faire outfit, and this shirt was exactly what I wanted: something cool enough for hot California weather, made of handmade natural material and hand sewn. My biggest concern was sizing, as there were no reviews yet. So I made my best guess at a size Large and it fits great. Loose, but not like a tent! (I'm 5'11" 210lb.) I'm very happy with this purchase.
