Measurement Chart for our Custom Armour


Steel or Leather Armor


You may either write your measurements in the "Measurements and General Information section" during the checkout process from our shopping cart, or print this page and fax or mail it to us.


It is best to use a cloth or a tailor measuring tape and it's easier if you have someone assist you. Try to stand straight, naturally relaxed (if not otherwise requested). The measuring tape should be snug to the body, but do not draw it too tight.


For the best fit you should wear the clothes that you will be wearing under your Armour, (Arming doublet, Padded Hose, Tunic, Chain mail shirt, Shoes, Pants, etc.)!


Not all measurements are necessary for all armor types / parts. Try to choose only the relevant ones. If in doubt please fill in. More is better than less.

Gauntlet Measurements

Outline of your hand on a sheet of paper. Please draw a line beside the outline for scale (centimeters work best). Use a measuring tape and draw the line 10 cm long. This prevents scale distortion. 

Instructions: Draw around both your hands on a white piece of paper placed on a firm, flat surface. Please keep the pencil straight.

If you will wear leather gloves or hockey gloves etc. to pass SCA inspections, you should wear these items while making
the tracing. You can either mail or fax us this template.
