Size Chart

All the sizes listed below are the measurements of the chainmail, not the wearer. Chain often offers a tighter fit that expected; so, we recommend getting dressed up in all the costume you will be wearing beneath your chain (shirt, gambeson and jerkin) and then taking your measurements to ensure a more accurate fit.

We know the cheaper prices are tempting. But, don't skimp on the sizing. The small sizes are very small!
