The street is a hard place to conduct business, but it’s a way of life you’ve become very good at keeping. Two coppers jingle in the pouch hanging from your belt, but by the end of the day you’re determined to increase the lot to a gold or two. A good card game and a poor ol’ sap is all it takes.
On your way to your regular spot you pass a lovely lady in a fine dress. You may be a ruffian--an obvious observation by your roguish Shoulder Armour--but with your candid smile you give the lady a tip of your fanciful top hat. She looks flattered, which is a good distraction...because now you’ve got a silver to add to the copper in your pouch.
Epic Armoury’s Shoulder Armour is a handsomely crafted piece of armour with shoulder and upper arm protection. Made from vegetable-tanned full-grain leather, this armour features a pauldron and a sword-breaker designed to deflect blows away from the head. Using overlapping and form-fitting plates to add extra strength to the leather, you can expect to use this shoulder guard for a long time with regular leather care. The upper arm guard is embellished with flattened leather cords and toned rivets.
Secure the Shoulder Armour using the sturdy leather straps around the upper arm and the chest. You can wear it on either shoulder or as a pair together. The style is neutral, allowing you to easily match it with other Epic Armoury leather and metal armours when customizing your character’s equipment.

Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase
It is best to start cleaning leather from the most delicate measures possible. Therefore, use a damp cloth with a little soap. If this is not enough - use a hard brush to remove dirt. Remove the soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue, and then use a dry cloth to wipe away the remaining water from the leather. Let it dry completely before the next maintenance step.
Always keep the leather maintenance after cleaning, because the soap will remove some of its natural oils. Apply mink oil, olive oil or professional lanolin-based fats to clean leather using a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of fat with circular movements. Wait for the fat to soak in the leather, then use a clean cloth to clog the residue. For maintenance, you can also use beeswax by heating it to a liquid state and applying it to the leather. Remember that the leather so preserved will be harder and significantly darken what sometimes is the desired effect.
