The interest in HEMA(Historical European Martial Arts has grown dramatically over the last decade. Dozens of manuscripts and printed books survive from the period 1300-1600, detailing the historical use of a wide variety of weapons, wielded in and out of armour, on foot and on horseback. Wrestling with and without weapons is a key component of these martial arts.

We’ve retained the most important aspects of the historical patterns, particularly the exaggerated armhole, also called ‘le grande assiette sleeve’, which permits complete freedom of arm movement.  Its uniquely cut armholes make it well suited for training Historical European Martial Arts. Our Renaissance Wrestling Jacket is designed after the jacket worn by historical wrestling master Fabian Von Auerswald.

We’ve retained the most important aspects of the historical patterns, particularly the exaggerated armhole, also called ‘le grande assiette sleeve’, which permits complete freedom of arm movement. These uniquely cut armholes make it well suited for training renaissance wrestling and fencing. It’s made from medium weight cotton canvas for a combination of protection and breathability. We recommend dry cleaning this item in order to extend its life to a maximum. If you do choose to wash your jacket – only do so in cold water and hang to dry – never machine dry as that is the most destructive part of modern washing.

The ideal compliment for our Meyer PantsFencing Knickers and Renaissance Fencing pants.

Note: This chart is meant as a general reference and there is considerable leeway with garment because you can tie it to fit you exactly. Because this garment has a ‘ port-piece’ (a period term for the front placket, also called a modesty panel in modern terms) you can tie it shut  anywhere within the range given and you will still be completely covered. The nature of fit of a garment that ties shut is very forgiving and will permit a good fit even if you are a bit smaller or larger than the given sizes. The smallest measurement indicates the size with the jacket tied to meet in the middle and the widest where the placket extends to, or the largest size it will tie shut and still have the placket cover the front completely. It won’t precisely tie to meet in the middle on most people (unless you happen to be that exact size) but that is not necessary in order to fit correctly or look good.
