    Wanted to Buy: FIE Clothing and Equiptment

    I've worn just about every piece of clothing and Equiptment I have down to the last nub, and it's time for me to buy a lot of new gear. I'll buy brand new if I have to, but I always prefer seeking out used items first- not only for cost reasons but to reduce the waste of making new stuff if it's not needed. It can be almost new, or items that didn't fit at a higher price, or a little less for used items with some life left in them. Message me if you have anything that might fit the bill.

    I'm usually around 42 in US/UK size for jackets (maybe 50-52 Euro?) and 34-36 for breeches (not sure of euro size). Glove size 8.5, everything right handed. Medium-large mask ( prefer LP contour fit). Maybe some épée body cords. As I said I need just about everything replaced, so long as its up to international competition standards and FIE rated send me a message. I'll probably buy everything new I still need in a weeks time. Thank you.

    A person with a european size of 50-52 is very likely male. If not, we've probably come across the largest female fencer in history...

    For reference I'm a european (ie. german/swedish) size 40, which according to onlineconversion.com equals a US size 12. A german/swedish size 50-52 would equal a US 22-24.
    Fencing is my only PvP.

    Hey, large women can fence, too! You want to try to stop them?

    I wouldn't think 5'10" is terribly tall for a female.... Though i would fancy myself a top noch female fencer....But I am in fact male and right-handed (I think I actually remembered this detail before though).

    I should have also specified I'm looking for high-end kit that might have been used little if not at all for one reason or another. Though, I'd also consider more used items if the price is right.

    Birusan, if you're plastron wasn't full body I'd buy it. Also a few people PM'd me and I'll get back to you this evening after I have a look.

    Cheers,
    FQ
