Our Rapier Doublets are not sized by modern sizing standards since period clothing does not fit like modern clothing. The numbers in the sizing chart are ACTUAL BODY MEASUREMENTS, not modern sizes.

All rapier fighters are encouraged to contact us, if you still aren't sure which size will fit you best.
ATTENTION - FEMALE RAPIER FIGHTERS

The sizing instructions are for men only! These garments are cut long in the torso and fit most men; however, the majority of the women fencers will need to get a "female torso" doublet because of their shorter torso. Also, the feminine bust, waist, hips ratio have to be taken into consideration so you will probably wear a size smaller than these instructions. There is no extra charge for shortening the torso!

We ask that you contact us with your bust, waist, hips and nape of neck to back waist measurements and we will insure that your receive the correct size for your figure.


CUSTOM SIZING
If your actual body measurements are a great deal larger or smaller than the ones listed on this chart you will probably need the pattern adjusted to a custom size. Most custom sizes will only be done after we see you in person at Pennsic for the initial measurement session so that I can see first hand how your body compares to our pattern - especially if your chest/girth measurement is more than 52".

There is an additional charge for custom sizes.
THIS IS NOT A CUSTOM FIT!

CUSTOM WORK OR SIZING FOR A FENCING DOUBLET IS AN ADDITIONAL $55.00
