Sizing

Why don't we offer universal sizes of our clothes? Medieval fashion didn't have much in common with modern fashion, and buying clothes in malls. That's why we require giving measurements according to which the clothes will be sewn. Through late middle ages fashion for well-fitted clothes dominated - that requires making them for each client individually. That makes you sure, that you are treated singly and that we are doing our best to make your orders in Medieval Market corresponding to your needs and recommendable.

The illustration below ("Vitruvian Man" by Leonardo da Vinci) shows you the measures, which you should give us with your order (you can give them setting up your client account, and if you did not give all of them while installing your profile, you can add or change it later in client's panel). Example: if you want to order only joined hose, you don't have to give us all measures from the illustration, but only: A3, A4, A5, J, K, L, M, N, O, P (when with foot). For gambeson we need: A1, B, C, D, F, G, H, I, J, K. For female clothes we need: A1, A2, B, C, D, F, G, H, I, J, K.
At the illustration measurments around parts of body are marked green and lenghts are marked black.
The shoulder lenght (B) should be measured when arm is bent (90 degree). We measure it on elbow. Starting point is the connection between clavicle and arm. The D should be measured under the armpits.
Please measure your chest (H) while taking deep breath.



Below you will find pictures: 'how to take B, C, D, I measures'.
