Armours
I would be more splendidly dressed today than for any festival. If the enemy do not recognize me by the violence of my assault, let them recognize me by the brillancy of my raiment.If fortune gives my throat to the sword ...let them at least say, "How splendid he looks in death."
- Theodoric, King of the Ostrogoths


What I wear, where I got it, and how I made it.
I believe you should not sacrifice looking good for protection.
I believe you can achieve both.
