Chain mail tunic

This hauberk or as it is more commonly known chainmail tunic is made from large flat steel links which in alternate rows are riveted and welded together creating a protective mesh over the wearers' body. The collar is made up of a woven stiff material with leather being used as thread to attach this piece of material to the chainmail's shoulders of the garment.
