 The sword sits in your baldric hanging down over your Fencing Shirt, faithful to its master despite the challenges. It has been a long and dusty road, but that sword has remained at your side through it all.

As your infantry unit comes to a halt, there is the tension one always feels before the fight. You resist the anxiety, because the moment you step into battle all of that must fade away. It will be you fighting alongside your fellow soldiers, and it will be the sword hanging in your trusted baldric that keeps you alive.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury’s Fencing Shirt is a loose roguish garment designed for comfort and style. Made from medium cotton, this shirt falls just under the hip and is fitted with a high collar with a v-neckline. Adjust the collar opening with a laced cotton cord through brass eyelets. The sleeves are designed to give a full, loose look associated with swashbucklers, pirates and musketeers. Tighten a cotton cord at the wrists to keep the fabric out of the way, made to easily fit inside a pair of gloves or gauntlets.

The style is classic late renaissance, but will match a wide variety of characters. Match with other Epic Armoury clothes and armours to create your personalized look.

Available in White and Epic Black; and sizes 6-10 Years, Small, Small/Medium, Large/X-Large, 2X-Large/3X-Large, 3X-Large and 4X-Large.
