DETAILS

Epic Armoury’s Landsknecht Shirt is a hip-length shirt with baggy sleeves and vertically cut colours, most often associated with the wealthy men of the Renaissance. Made from durable heavy cotton, this shirt has a broad neck which can be laced open or closed. The contrasting puff-and-slash sleeves end in narrow cuffs at the wrists, which are adjusted by tightening its reinforced cotton cord to get the best fit.

The Landsknecht Shirt is fully compatible with Epic Armoury's other clothes and armours, and the style will fit with a broad variety of characters.

Available in Epic Black/Off-white, Black/Dark-Red, Green/Off-white, and Red/Yellow; and in sizes Small, Medium, Large, X-Large and XX-Large.
