The complex and lengthy production phases required to achieve the sought-after levels of excellence: Each foil, epee and saber from Franchini Blades tells their own story. Hand-finished, our sports blades are put through rigorous control tests that are regulated by the international body of materials accreditation of the various federations in every country and including of course, the FIE. We use uniformly homologated machinery for our testing procedures.
Starting from underneath the chin, go up the side of the head, over one ear, over the top of the head, back down the other ear, and back to under the chin to make a complete circle. (Essentially you're measuring the circumference of the part of your face that the mask will be encircling.) Use a soft ruler or yarn to measure, and make sure to keep it snug or else you'll wind up with a mask that's too large.
Also Note: Your masks are adjustable! If you receive your mask and are unsure if it fits, please ask your coach or an experienced team mate to help you adjust your mask before exchanging it for an alternate size. Most fencers will fit a small or medium mask!
For Men: Take a chest measurement under your armpits around the widest part of chest at the shoulder blades.
For Women: Use regular Bra Size
After taking your chest measurement, add the following amount of inches according to which jacket type you are sizing for below. If you fall on
an odd number round up to the nearest even number.
Tall Sizes: Tall size jackets are 3" longer in the sleeves and 2" longer in the torso.
Cotton: Add 6”
Comfort: Add 6”
Padded: Add 6”
Nylon & Stretchy: Add 4"
At Note on Children's Sizing: Children younger the age 12 will not always fit the normal sizing patterns of our
equipment. So we've included a chart below to help clarify. Using the department store child sizes you can determine
which size fits your child best
