I didn't know you could still get a tailor made suit of armor.

Tobias Capwell in his custom made armour, based on an effigy from about the 1450s. It is a beautifully tailored second skin designed to protect him while jousting or (with a different helmet) in foot combat.
Properly made armour does not restrict movement, armour like this actually has a greater range of movement than the human inside it.
For those of you unfamiliar with Tobias, he is a big name on the jousting international scene.


  1. "Tailor made"? Tailors make armor now?


  2. I'm sure that he inherited money.
