I was wondering if anyone knows a site or person willing to explain how to make a scale mail vest or similar type of clothing? Also, who may be able to supply scales.

what style of scalemail do you want? there is the kind that is sewn onto leather or other fabric. or like the metal ones that are on TRL that are connected with rings and no cloth backing?

I am looking for both types. I have seem some of lorenzo's work, but not many pics of the back to show how to connect the scales. Any instructions would be greatly appreciated.
