    This is the completed piece of the WIP thread.

    I didn't think the incomplete Gladuis did anything for him. Also felt the linen scarf does break up the metals and reds too.

    See what you think,

    I've tried mine with and without the Gladius.
    Both ways are fine but I've decided to include it as it appears that it was worn high and the hilt would show.
    Also gives a bit of purpose to the strap.
