Roman Mail Shirt
Although Julius Caesar and Trajan are appreciated for being quite complex and very different during their reigns, their soldier uniform changed very little. Fighting tactics may have been a little more primitive under Caesar as he played a role in the Roman Republic transformation into the Roman Empire, but he essentially created battle fundamentals for Trajan to build on.
Referred to as ‘hamata’ by the Romans, this Roman Mail Shirt is a garment you would have worn if you served under either one of these legendary men. Made from blackened, butted mail rings, this handsome shirt will accommodate up to a 50-inch chest. The throat and sleeves are trimmed in leather for durability and strength, and it features removable studs for attachments.
