The sword sits in the baldric hanging down from your shoulder, faithful to its master despite the challenges. It has been a long and dusty road--and your uniform down to your Fencing Shirt is covered in dirt and grime--but that sword has remained at your side through it all.
As your infantry unit comes to a halt, there is the tension one always feels before the fight. You resist the anxiety, because the moment you step into battle all of that must fade away. It will be you fighting alongside your fellow soldiers, and it will be the sword hanging in your trusted baldric that keeps you alive.
The Epic Armoury Fencing Shirt is a loose roguish garment made from soft cotton and designed for both comfort and style. It falls just under the hip, and is fitted with a high collar at the neck and laced with a cotton cord through brass eyelets. The sleeves are designed to give a full, loose look often associated with swashbucklers, pirates and musketeers of the Renaissance. Tie the sleeves at the wrists to keep them out of the way.
The style is moderate and can be used with a great variety of character styles. Match with other Epic Armoury clothes and armours to create your personalized look.

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.
