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 steel rings plated with brass for long lasting good looks and has been faithfully copied from examples in museums and private collections.
Mail shirts fit up to a 54” chest with a 33” long shirt. The sleeves are approximately 18” and hang to just below the elbows on average height warriors. This Plated Brass Mail Armor shirt is made of butted 16 gauge steel links in the International Pattern, 4 links through a 5th, a style common to all European mail. The outer link diameter of each link is about 7/16" with the inner link diameter at about 3/8". We recommend keeping this mail oiled at all times. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Matching coif available. Express delivery not available on mail. Mail Shirts add $6 each additional s/h.

Plated Brass Mail Armor Shirt
Workmanship quality quite good at first glance. Unfortunately, the chainmail was not well oiled, as some places are already tarnished (dark). Unfortunately, I noticed when wearing, that from the rings some of the brass flakes off. What is already, from my point of view not safe (risk of injury!) When the flaking parts are lying around.

Got this as a Deal of the Day. Absolutely love it! I'm 6'3" and 270 lbs and it fits great. Only thing worth mentioning is the sleeves aren't elbow length, but all the way to the wrists. High quality mail shirt!
