Chainmaille shirt by montanaflash23 Chainmaille shirt by montanaflash23
Well here is my chainmaille shirt i made a few years ago and realized i never really did upload here, so i went and found an old picture of it, and bam! But not only that, it's a classy chainmaille shirt with the tie combined with it :D.

Anyway, i'm not really sure how many rings are in it, but i do know it's more then a few but less then way to many. I know it weighs about 18 or 19 pounds and used 14g 1/2" rings. This was my seconds shirt i've completed. It was done in all in European 4-1 weave.

But the tie uses a different weave, European 6-1 to give it a more structural soundness so it'll hold its shape. But one problem is the thing is made all out of galvy, so it weighs a couple of pounds. It's worth wearing though :)

That would be amazing, kinda makes me wish i had to wear a tie. The best i've ever done is sold it to a guy to wear to prom.

Nice work. I'm currently making a shirt myself, and my rings are 18g 1/4" ID. When it's all done, I've figured it will be somewhere in the area of 24,000 rings. Given that your rings are about double the size of mine, I'd guess your count would be somewhere between 12,000 and 15,000 (can't quite see the bottom, so I can't be sure on comparison for length).

Good guess, i've never really taken the time to figure out the ring count, i always just told people a whole lot, i appreciate that. Can't wait to see yer shirt completed, sounds awesome.
