Revival Clothing Wrestling Jacket
« on: 2011-06-03, 11:21:47 »
Anyone interested in taking my old revival clothing wrestling jacket off my hands for the low price of $50?
~ They start @ $149 new ~

Although it has a couple of years usage it is still whole with the only signs of wear is the nylon tie straps have become a little frayed but still very serviceable. This jacket makes an excellent light-weight gambeson for those warmer months as well as a good light sparring jacket. It is black, size XL, 100% cotton (pre-shrunk) and I can bring it with me on Sunday if any of you gentlemen attending are interested.

A note about revival clothing sizing… They run a little on the small side. When I originally purchased this jacket I took the XL as a substitute for an XXL. I have a 48” chest and the XL just fit me BEFORE being washed, after it shrunk the sleeves are too short and the arms are too snug, especially after wearing all day as Sir Ed and Sir Jason can attest to after helping me out of it last Sunday.  ;)

I'm tempted...I mean I never wanted one but for that price, you really can't beat it.  Let me think on it...of course, if one of our brothers wants it- by all means.  ;)

Well I will have it with me Sunday and anyone who is interested can try it on after we all shed our armor. :)

Well, if its too big for you then its likely to be too big for me but I'll give it a try nonetheless.  lol

It's always worth a try. Revival Clothing's sizing is a little strange anyway.

I intend to...and whichever fits best (wrestling jacket or sugarloaf helm) is the one I'll get!  Deal?

Ed is quite right, the revival clothing sizes tend to run on the smallish side, also this jacket has done some substantial shrinking from when I first got it. My new XXL one is actually a bit big but I know when it shrinks it will fit perfectly!

Well since there have been no takers, I think I will take the jacket off the market as it turns out to be perfect now
for my "light" armor kit!

Awesome...and by the way, Wolf, it was a near-perfect fit for me.  I would've gotten it but I'd already bought a sugar loaf helm from Edward.

That was indeed perfectly sized. I had no idea it's the one you said was not fitting well.

Congrats on the sugar loaf, Sir William. I forgot to ask to try it on to see how it fits/doesn't fit me, so that I can order one of my own if it fit well. Hopefully we will cross paths again soon and I can trouble you to bring it with you?

Absolutely, James, I shall- in fact, by that time it might even be available.  Keep you posted!
