Inspired by the armor worn by Superman's father Jor-El (Russel Crowe, reference photo HERE) in the 2013 Man Of Steel movie, this is the medieval leather armor crafted by the wizards at Prince Armory. It looks like metal but it is LEATHER. Clearly these people are talented. They can do things with leather I never thought possible. Have I ever told you I ate a leather belt on a road trip once? It's true. My dad wouldn't stop for snacks and I was hungry so I ate my belt like a strip of the world's saddest, shittiest beef jerky. Now I have to hold my pants up with one hand because my parents won't buy me another one because they're trying to teach me a lesson about not eating my clothes. *nibbling necktie* It has proven a hard lesson to learn.
Keep going for some closeups.
Thanks to Eddy, who has always dreamed of owning a suit of medieval leather armor. Haven't we all?
