Our Augsburg design is not based on a specific suit of armor, but rather inspired by the Gothic style of plate armor popularized in the 15th century Holy Roman Empire. During this period, centers of armor production included Nuremburg, Landshut, and Augsburg — guess where we got our name? This German style was characterized by fluted metal, which aids in the deflection of crushing blows and also looks really snazzy. 😮
Our Iron Fit shorts are designed with male bodies in mind, with a 0.75 inch elastic for a slide-resistant fit at the waist, side seams for better comfort in the groin, and proportionally roomier thighs for dem quads. They also feature two (COUNT'EM, TWO) pockets, one on each outer thigh, perfect for phones, keys, or a slim wallet, and snug enough for activity without bouncing contents.
Our model is 5'9 and wearing a size L.
