The Plated Brass Shirt has Brass plating over our butted steel links. A great looking statement, especially when the sun hits. 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. Each outer link diameter is about 7/16”, the inner link diameter is about 3/8”. 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. We recommend keeping this mail oiled at all times.
