SOTW Wool Socks
Perfect for cold weather operations, these wool socks are a light grey/off white weave with enclosed heel and
toe (they will accept RIT dye to change the color). These can be cut an hemmed to be toeless and heel less if necessary.
There is some elastic in the tube part that prevents stretching out. Look great for nearly any period. Wool retains
its warmth even when sopping wet, so in cold or wet weather these are worth their weight in GOLD... We are only
charging $9. Order them BEFORE the snow falls on your Castra!
SOTW Wool Mittens
We know the Romans had some form of mittens or hand coverings for cold climes. There is even a picture
of a simple fingered glove from the Empire. These are simple wool mittens, as plain as we can find them. We cannot
say they are perfect, but they are better than frostbite!
SOTW Petasos Straw Hat
Perfect straw hat for civilians or for soldiers wih "Imperial Italic Pattern hair loss". Based on an earlier
Greek design, this simple straw hat was seen in sculture and art throughout the Greek and Roman period. We add
a simple leather tie to keep it on your head or tie down the sides. A great addition to your kit!
SOTW NEW! Sagum Cloak
Simple Roman Sagum cloak. 80*60 inches 80% wool fire resistant. Whip stiched edges, very warm.
Great deal. Dark brick red, Navy Blue, or Forest Green (not OD!), or dark grey. Check with us for current color
availability! MUCH heavier than our older sagums!! You won't need three of these at Clash of Iron! Also
limited supply of earth tone plaids for our celtic brothers! Purchase them for your unit, and contact us for bulk pricing.
SOTW Cotton Pterugi Fringe
We finally found an all cotton pterugi fringe for your officer impression or for your vex! All cotton is
as period as we have found so far and a great improvement over the synthetics we have had to use over the years. We
have a limited amount, and it is priced either by the foot, a special 18" Vex length and by the yard. Fringe is a medium
gold tone with a red embellishment thread (see pics). Very nice! And we are even able to give a good price
on it! Click the picture for detailed photos!
$5.00 per foot
SOTW Custom Leather Subarmalis
The Custom made SOTW leather subarmalis is based on the one designed by Centurio Longinus of Legio VI FFC.
The leather is vegetable tanned, as are all ties and pterugis. It accepts oil or dyes easily and readily. Sticthing
is done in a waxed white thread that will hold up to abuse. The standard model shown includes velcro'd pterugis to make
them removable (they can also be sewn in easily as an option. We find that the subarmalis can be used for different
impressions if the lower pterugis are removable, but that is up to you. The leather draw string in the back insures
a tight fit. As for the look itself, Centurio Longinus went for leather ties in front reminiscent of a lorica segmentata
ties, and the overall look of the jerkin is of a leather Hamata. It looks great under armor, or by a chilly fire.
As for authenticity we do not have a "based on" model, though we know the Romans had them, the entire piece must be clasified
as conjectural, but I think you will like it! They are individually sized to you and some variation on the design is
easy to accomplish. Price as pictured is $300. Time frame for delivery is 3-4 months (probably less, but plan
to wait please!).
SOTW Custom Subarmalis $300
SOTW Subarmalis Our linen Subarmalis is padded can be custom fitted to you by size, length,
number of pterugis, etc. Padding will be wool (the protoype pictured has a foam padding, 2 are available at a reduced
price! You cannot see the foam). Machine sewn white dyable cotton is great for a senior officer or centurio impression.
