Hi

I recently stumbled over this fella and i kind of like his style. I interpret his leg armour to be a full joined hose style pair of maille chausses. Are there anyone who has reproduced chausses in that style?

I recently came across this video

It seems this person makes quality mail, not sure if he does leg mail.

Henrik, since you're Swedish you should check out Isak Krogh (https://www.facebook.com/isakkroghhantverk). He makes really nice mail but compared to the stuff from India it's quite expensive. Nothing wrong with that since it's high quality craftmanship and well worth the money.

Do you have a source to the picture?

I do, it's from the Thun sketchbooks.

Thanks Henrik! It's a really nice picture and a cool look so I hope that you can recreate it.
