Awesome! Thanks for all the advice and info. My waist is wider than the rest of me, so I'll probably expand for that. Right now it just fits there. And I'm thinking I'll buy the cheaper gambeson. Stil ...

So your article says 10 inches extra circumference from the chest measurement. Should that extra 10 inches be for the entire body then?

Also, for the gambeson are there other places that may be che ...

I would like it to be available for actual combat. So how thick is a padded arming jacket/where is a good place to get one?

Thanks for the help, by the way.

So I've finished up the body (shoulders, too) section of a hauberk I'm working on and wanted to tailor it to fit better. I know it's tight around the waist and it's somewhat loose at the back for most ...

It's also really difficult to close a ring once it's in the weave if the ID is small...

Yeah, that makes sense. Nicely done.
I bet there are alloys that are better for this than titanium, but they'll probably only do a bit better. Guess that question is answered.

How 'bout this? Modern military uses for maille. Don't ask me what that could possibly be, but there's my idea.

True, you'll still have a hexagonal unit of sorts, but it won't be a perfect hexagon. So the angle doesn't have to stay at 60 degrees. Think of it this way. Take some e 4-in-1 that has been staggered ...

A basic E 4-1 unit is a fivelet... That is, a central ring, with four others attached.
If you were to attach two more rings to this fivelet in the central row, you will understand why maille is hexa ...

Would it be possible to have a european 4-in-1 weave with an AR such that the open direction is as long as the closed direction? As in, is there an AR that will get you a square piece with equal rings ...
