I was wearing my byrnie at school, and saw a guy in a tuxedo shirt (those t-shirts with tuxedo parts printed on it), and it got me thinking....

A t-shirt, with a sheet pattern printed on the whole thing. it's a maille shirt (or even hoody, i'd get that in a second) that A) keeps you warm, B) doesn't weigh 30 lbs, and C) impresses the ladies.

of course, i might be sleep-deprived and coming up with really bad ideas (known to happen on many occasions)

I've seen such a shirt in a catalog... it was called Junk Maille and being sold by a company called medieval miscellanous about 15 years ago. I think its a great idea if anyone wants to start a product line in this area let me know and I'll be your biggest customer.

It would be even cooler if there was a logo or something on it, like the MAIL fivelet or some clever quotation about maille. Maybe do one of those ever-popular things where you list the components and expenses, then end with "Handmade 40,000 ring hauberk -- priceless."

Better yet, have a simple logo, but inlaid into the weave.

Just an idea.

Then you can have it printed in a small "weave", like 20g 3/32" imitation, and have the writing and such be an inlay.

I absolutely love this idea. I have numerous places in the small town of Antioch here that do custom stitching and screen printing, i can see what kind of a deal i can get on it, i just need to know the specifics and i can get to work.

You can use black 16g 1/4" anodized aluminum rings and acid etched light silver (closest thing you will get to white ) 16g 1/4" anodized rings. Might be a good idea, I have a ton of them laying around if your interested.
