Tie strings with points
It’s been a tiresome day of training, and you’ve been trapped inside your completely sweat soaked gambeson for the better part of eight hours. The last thing you need as you finally settle onto your cot is to mess with stubborn ties!
Thankfully your Epic Black Tie Strings with Points make the lacing process simple, and you untie each individual tie with a quick pull. Within a minute your cloth armour hits the floor, and you can properly collapse onto your pillow. Phew!
Epic Armoury’s Epic Black Tie Strings with Points is a set of six cloth aiguillette cords designed to easily thread through eyelets on your cloth costume. Each end is securely fastened to a brass tip that makes lacing a breeze, keeps the cloth from unraveling, prolongs the string’s lifetime use, and gives your costume a polished look. There are five available tie string colours, so feel free to match or contrast your strings with your costume! For example, use this Epic Black version to replace the strings on your Black Imperial Gambeson, or change up the look on your Dorian Vest by adding a different colour to the seams. It’s a great way to make your costume a little more unique.
- This type of tie is considered an aiguillette, aiglet, or point due to its metal tip.
- Points were used for practical and decorative reasons since the 16th century.
- These ties would have been used to hold up armour and close seams along sleeves and jackets.
