Review of: Mercenary Boots
These fit my needs as a starter pair of boots for my Renaissance Faire costume, since I'm not (yet) willing to pay hundreds for leather boots.
- Look nice
- Fit well (size Medium. I'm usually a 10.5 or 11) and no issue with calf size (male, muscular/toned but not especially large calves)
- They seem well made (time will tell on durability)
- Good value as an inexpensive starter boot
- Fake poly leather will probably be hot

Review of: Ozark Hickory Root Cane
I’ve had a hickory cane for years. Leaving my old cane behind on one of my outings hurt. I’ll have to settle the new cane into my hand.

Review of: Steampunk Gentleman's Empire Opera Coat
I bought this for a costume murder mystery dinner and it was perfect. Very well made and comfortable. I was worried about the fit but it was perfect. I have used it for several functions and loaned it to friends for other costume occasions. If your thinking of purchasing this I would say go for it!

Review of: Locksley Boots
I bought it for myself but the cut is a bit on the small side, however they turned out to fit my son perfectly, who wears them every chance he gets. I had to replace the lacing after a solid 6 months of almost constant wear which is more than reasonable and I am very happy with how the boots have held up. My only suggestion is to purchase one to two sizes larger than your normal shoe size.

Review of: Arming Cap, Quilted
Great arming cap. I wear it under my MRL Mail Coif and my MRL Visored Bascinet. Now the Arming Cap itself is a touch on the thin side, BUT if it were any thicker whatsoever my mail and helmet would be too tight. As of now they all fit perfect!! Not just trying to get reward points here. This arming cap is well put together and made to last, and mine has seen plenty of Renaissance Faires! Grab one, you won’t regret it 👍😊

Review of: Mordred Gambeson
Absolutely love this Gambeson! The neck and cuffs are very high quality suede. As far as the colors of the Gambeson are concerned they are practically the same as what you see on the website or in the catalog. One thing that really attracted me was the overall gray color, it looks good with pretty much anything! 👍. I am a heavyset 5’8 tall 200 pounds ( mostly muscle ) 😊
and the S/M fits me like a glove. It was missing 2 silver (studs)? Anyway easy fix. Now the arms are thicker than the torso piece as far as protection. But that’s fine as I plan to wear a surcoat or possibly a sleeveless mail shirt. Overall an EASY 4.5 or 5 stars ⭐️. It fits right in with the rest of my MRL/ACC collection. Will be wearing it next month to our Scottish Festival representing Clan Stewart of Galloway, looks GREAT with my kilt. Off topic I live in Panama City Florida, and we were almost wiped off the map by Hurricane Michael, and cleaning, sharpening and oiling my MRL/ACC collection has helped me keep my sanity. 10th day without power but we finally got our internet. I am considering treating myself, (if funds allow), when the power and major shipping companies are back up. Perhaps the Sticklestad Viking Sword? Anyways now I’m rambling. This is an excellent Gambeson! Not just trying to get reward points here. I highly recommend it!!

Review of: Leather Cavalier Hat
It was a little big, but some hat tape fixed that. Very sturdy construction.

Review of: Capt. Jack Tricorn Hat
My brother-in-law has one, and my wife and I liked it so much that we each bought one as well. We also bought one for a friend of ours.
