What are your thoughts on this (Aesthetics of Arms and Armor)

Post by Takeyama »

I found this quite interesting, and was curious about everyone's thoughts on Ilya's interpretation of armor aesthetics.

I agree with Mac and Wade that the job of an armourer or tailor is to make you look better than you look naked. And some guys who like fighting sports may have a hard time wrapping their heads around trying to look assertively sexy, just like they have a hard time wrapping their heads around needing help to get dressed.

The craftsmen of old had their secrets, and those secrets died with them. We are not the better for that, and neither are they.
