The sword sits in your baldric hanging down over your Fencing Shirt, faithful to its master despite the challenges. It has been a long and dusty road, but that sword has remained at your side through it all.
As your infantry unit comes to a halt, there is the tension one always feels before the fight. You resist the anxiety, because the moment you step into battle all of that must fade away. It will be you fighting alongside your fellow soldiers, and it will be the sword hanging in your trusted baldric that keeps you alive.
Epic Armoury’s Fencing Shirt is a loose roguish garment designed for comfort and style. Made from medium cotton, this shirt falls just under the hip and is fitted with a high collar with a v-neckline. Adjust the collar opening with a laced cotton cord through brass eyelets. The sleeves are designed to give a full, loose look associated with swashbucklers, pirates and musketeers. Tighten a cotton cord at the wrists to keep the fabric out of the way, made to easily fit inside a pair of gloves or gauntlets.

Silence. Perfect silence.
You use the silence as a cloak of armour, masked in the darkness and waiting for danger to show itself. You ready your sword, prepared to launch your deadly attack should your Lord’s assassins appear. One quick slice and they will breathe their last, you sword hitting its mark and your Kimono becoming soaked in their dark red blood. When you vanish once more, you’ll leave any of their allies bewildered and afraid.
Epic Armoury’s Dark Red Kimono is a traditional Japanese T-shaped robe with ¾ length sleeves made from heavy red cotton and a reinforced collar. Reaching from the shoulders to the upper thighs, this garment is a great base to an Ancestral costume.

The sleeves hang loose just above the wrists, leaving the hands free and allowing the greatest possible freedom of action.
Fully compatible with Epic Armoury's other Asian styles, the Kimono is a great basis for almost any samurai-inspired character you wish to make - be it honourable warrior or dishonoured thief.
