Where to find the cheapest riveted chain mail?

Just curious on that. I've seen some indian armourers on Youtube who could be the cheapest ones, but I'm not sure at all. Where did you buy your chainmails, guys?

My sets are ebay purchases from India. Coming in at around £140 for xxl (50 inch chest) - aluminium though.

You may get better luck on Facebook! :)

I'm seeing aluminium short-sleeved ones for 90 € (including shipping) on ebay. And they are riveted!!! I guess it's the place to go :S

got riveted ali shirt from allbeststuff or allthebeststuff an indian vendor via ebay ~ 5 years ago, & used probably 1 / month for 50% of those months since , while rivets are gradually popping for that "lived in" look, particularly around armpits / stress areas but still usable & with more TLC to reinforce with steel would likely not be so bad, nice n light, stacked it for a year or so with "fishmongers" scale (similar look to one set Conan has in one of the original movies) made from 3 vests bought on ebay over a year or so for superlight 10 points ;)
