These vambraces with lacing are designed for active fencers and reenactors. In the dark medieval ages this type of vambraces was popular due to its practical and durable nature.
The vambraces are made of 3-4 mm thick smooth cowhide. These are quite robust guards that will protect your elbow against undesirable blows. The upper part of the vambraces is provided with decorative lacing with a 2.5 mm thick leather strip. The strip is used to draw the guard tight at three spots. The bottom part of the guard (so-called upholstered part) is made of fine 0.5-1.5 mm thick leather. The thicker leather is joined to the thinner leather by sewing together. After the long strings are threaded though the buckles they can be pulled under the buckles.
Vambraces Fencer could be made to measure for you. If interested in a made-to-measure size, please specify into the comment of your order:

The production of chain mail armor requires a lot of human handiwork. We were affected by an important fact that also changed the rules in many other industries. The labor costs of European workers far exceed the labor costs in Asia, even if you take into account the transport costs from Asia! For this simple reason, in the EU there are no workshops that manufacture chain mail armor professionally - and we are working with professionals only! Hobby-producers, who occasionally work in their garages, do not fit into our business concept. We are very sorry; we cannot make for you any mail armor made-to-your measure. Some re-enactors found a solution for this situation: they buy our imported standard-sized mail shirts (sometimes oversize or several pieces), unravel them and make tailor-made mail shirts, legs and other armor parts by themselves.
