Scalemail to chainmail sizing

3 posts in this topic

I've been working on a scalemail shirt for some time. The plan is to have the main torso section be made of scalemail with the sleeves and the groin region being chainmail. I'm getting close to the point where I need to start on the chainmail portions, but I don't know what size rings to buy for  it to have a smooth transition. I've been using small scales and am planning to do a European 6 in 1 for the chainmail. If anyone knows what size rings would work best please let me know. Pictures can be provided if needed.

Which direction do you want weave on the sleeves to hang, and how long are they? E6-1 may be too stiff for armpits and elbows.

I reckon pictures are needed.

E6-1, for reasons of geometry (link lie as well as added material) is practically twice as heavy as E4-1.  This can really drag a fella down after a mere two hours in the shirt.
