I like to explore the lesser-known regions of the SteamPunk universe. There's an abundance of material out there showing how the upper-class of that genre would live and dress... but what about the other castes of society?

Inspired by such thoughts, I created this piece of infantry armor for the SteamPunk grunts in the trenches. Someone has to get out there and fight so that others can live in comfort with their top-hats and lace.

It was hand-cut, formed and hammered from a sheet of nicely weathered 16 gauge brass. The heavy 16 gauge plate gives the piece a nice weight and an appearance of having been worn out in the elements for quite some time.

The piece is fully adjustable with straps for the shoulders, chest and waist. It will fit individuals ranging in size from a height of 5' 4" to 6' 4", waist of 28" to 36", and chest circumference ranging from 30" to 46"

The plates are connected by flexible & durable nylon strapping that allows them to articulate and slide along with the wearer's movements. The overall design of the piece was inspired by one of the last suits of medieval-styled armor to be worn in modern combat; German infantry armor from the first World War (circa about 1915): http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk256/RobLangham/trencharmour.jpg
