You are really tempting me with these offers. It would be great being a beginner. But what are the sizes for these and the leggings?

I'll take some measurements for you on them and what do you mean 'leggings'??

The full leggs you're selling on the other post. Because I may be interested in the whole set, if it fits me or I believe I will grow into them nicely. Would be a nice thing for an aspiring young man getting into SCA

Oh the carbon steel ones. Ok. I'm 5'10", 200lbs, legs 30 inseam, waist 36". They are solid enough for SCA combat. I have worn them myself in steel combat. They work well for 1st kit.

I'm 5' 9" and am 160Ibs, my leg length from inseam is roughly 32" and my waist is also 36. So it should almost be perfect.

What are the measurements for the gorget and spaulders?

That depends on what century you're aiming for, Naythan.  In your case, it wouldn't coincide- what Lord Dane's listing is of the 14thC style of armor, not something a Templar would've worn as it wouldn't have been invented yet.  So you're good!  ;)

Yes but Days Farrrrrrr Ahead I would hope to one day have good armor for Harnesfechten. But this armor would not fit me anyway, since I am larger than Aiden.

I have another heavy gauge kit I was saving for last before posting. It will be going for slightly more when I put it up for bidding.

I will have no money then probably. But thank you for telling me in advance, but the size probably won't fit.

I just needed a good starting kit for SCA purposes. All I need now are some hourglass gauntlets, padding, and a helmet. I don't think butted is allowed though. My primary kit is still going to be a late 13th century German one, but I couldn't miss the opportunity. Being only 17, I have a whole life ahead of me to buy armor that'll be custom made (ain't that a dream).

I thought were going to do 14th?
