“From the fury of the Northmen deliver us, O Lord.”
Tunic “Bjorn the Woodman”
Linen Viking tunic with accents and trim
This is an exclusive version of our Viking Tunic. It is made of natural flax linen with two types of trim (both trim patterns have been designed for this costume by ArmStreet). Cuffs and hem of the tunic are decorated with second layer of linen. This way these parts of the tunic are less unstainable. If you are choosing green or blue linen as second color trim will be replaced by one with matching color pattern.
Tunic's design is completely historically accurate and based on excavations at Birka, Sweden.
Important note about linen accents: if blue or green color choosen as secondary one, trim will be replaced with similar trim with matching color scheme:
Original trim will be used for red, black and brown secondary color, and green-blue one with green and blue decorations

To the esteemed wizards of Armstreet; Fair greetings! Please forgive the lateness of this missive, I was ill and unable to write. Recently my town messengers delivered the tunic I ordered from you. Mindful of your instructions, I had not expected my tunic until a certain date. Imagine my delight when it arrived early! And with such thought to its wrapping and protection, complete in its own linen bag. Please pass along my heartfelt thanks to all the dwarves, elves and humans who worked so tirelessly and so skillfully, as to make such a wondrous garment and have it reach me(despite a goodly distance and the vast waters that the dragon needed to cross on its journey)in such short time. Oh! Thank the dragon for me too! Swiftwing should be his/her name! It is a fair garment, both wondrous and magical in its comfort and appearance. It reflects great skill. So my thanks fair folk. May your serger never tangle and may your needles stay sharp.

Absolutely gorgeous, couldn’t be happier.

Another great tunic from Armstreet. I ordered a generic large this time and it fits as well as the custom one I had made. The sleeves are a tad long, but that is an easy alteration. Slava Ukraine!
Master Ark 29 of November 2022:
I love my new tunic! I wore it to a Wardruna concert and it got a lot of positive comments. I have ordered another one with different colours. Slava Ukraini!
Michael 15 of October 2022:
This is great quality and well worthwhile to wait. I look forward to buying more from this company in the future. Top of the line stitching and we'll put together materials.
Hans 14 of January 2022:
I keep returning to your store! And this is solely because of the quality of your products! The combination of great design and strong focus on details create an authentic, high quality look. And when you combine that with high quality fabric and craftmanship, then.... SIMPLY STUNNING!!! Thanks once again for exceeding my expectations, Armstreet!!!

I've ordered this in black with blue accented linen mainly because I'm a woman and while I'll be wearing it with blue leggings to match the accented blue linen I don't want the tunic skirt split. I already have a black Chemise I'll shorten the skirt to wear as an undertunic with this, and I've ordered a new one to replace it for my longer dresses. I really like the style of this tunic. I may order the new wool tunic or dress with duck trim, but I live in Florida. The winters are capricious here, with rare days cold enough for wool. I wear ARMSTREET clothing frequently, not just for eventing. I like the feel of linen, as well as the styles and comfort of the dresses. I'm old and can do as I like, so I do. It's a great boon at this time of life. Thanks, Armstreet, for being part of my freedom of choice. Dawn Renee

This was the first piece I ever bought at Armstreet. I bought the tunic in natural flax and blue flax linen. I was surprised how good the quality was when it arrived. That was the point Armstreet sneaked into my heart and I knew if I want to buy stuff for LARP, I should buy it here. The fit of the tunic is amazing, even for a woman. I love all the small details at this tunic, so it looks very clean but not boring. The blue is a wonderful royal blue – very bright and strong. The linen is very pleasant on the skin.
Mike 18 of January 2020:
nicely made, good fit, will buy other products, not cheaply made like other sellers

Bjorn the Woodsman shirt purchased as a Xmas gift for my son, (so haven't seen it on yet. Seems as beautifully made as all the Armstreet garments are, and arrived in good time.
Chris 07 of June 2019:
Purchased the “Bjorn the Woodman” tunic in large and it fit perfectly. The craftsmanship is stellar as always and the express shipping actually means it will get to the US in a decent time-frame. Thanks again ArmStreet!

Hello, i was curious if you also sold the cape featured in the first 2 pictures.
Hi, it was used for the photo shoot only, sorry, it is not for sale.
What is the sleeve length on the size small for this tunic (“Bjorn the Woodman”)? I am 5'6" and am wondering if the sleeves would be too long.
From the central seam on the back to the wrist it is 83 cm. Kindly note that our pre-made men's products are made for the full height of 6 feet so pre-made tunic might be too long for you.
Is it possible to get this tunic with the "Ingrid the Heartkeeper" trim? Also, I don't like this big piece of colour at the bottom. Could you lower the big trim to just above the smaller one and remove the colour?
Dear Lotte, yes we can make it with Ingrid trim (please simply request it in the comment to your oder). We can make the hem accent in natural linen color to match the main tunic color. Would you like to keep the red linen accents on the sleeves though?
I have 16 inch arms, would a Large be big enough? I have a 44 inch chest and 36 inch waist so i figured on a large, but was wondering about my arms fitting into the large.
Hi James! Yes, the sleeves should fit fine.
I order this one and I love it. It looks amazing and all that is left to do is to see how it stands up to my day to day needs of it. If all goes well I will certainly be ordering several more. The design and fit and so great. The trim is beautiful.
Thank you, Chris :) We appreciate your feedback!
Is it possible to order without the "embroidery accent"? To be clear, still have the coloured cuffs & bottom trim, but not the "embroidery"?
Hi Greg! How about this Bjorn the Hunter tunic instead?
Any chance this can be made in a green/blue? I know the pathfinder tunic comes in green (but I'm not sure if it is the same fabric or not).
Hi Alicia! This tunic is made of linen. Custom color should be possible. Please contact website support for further assistance.
You custom made me this tunic with natural linen body and "midnight blue" trim last year. Can you make they reverse? Midnight blue body and natural linen trim, all with the same blue/green ribbon trim as before?
Hi Stephen! Yes, it is possible.
Hello Armstreet! You claim that "Tunic's design is completely historically accurate and based on excavations at Birka, Sweden". Can I ask you for some references? As far as I know, there is no Viking Age tunic in Sweden, and the embroidery is based on no evidence. Thank you in advance. Thomas
The tunic`s cut is historically accurate, it is indeed based on excavations at Birka - big trading center of the Viking's epoch, which is placed on the territory of present-day Sweden. You can find more detail info about this topic here - bibliography, full of reliable sources can be found on the bottom of the page.
As for the trim and embroidery decorations, they are based on Viking's patterns of different styles, there is a detailed article on this topic on our website, but of course we never pretend that they are authentic replicas as well as all of our items.
I see there is a linen accents blue but i dont see the buying option.
The tunic is available in stock in two colour combinations: Natural tunic - Red accents and Black tunic - Red accents.
You can order a custom-made tunic with blue accents, just switch to a "Custom size" tab and choose the desired colours.
Is it hand stitched? It appears to me that is machine stitched. Is it visible anywhere on the outside of the tunic and trim? Thank you.
This tunic has machine-made visible stitches, our costumes are made not in accordance to the strict reenactment techniques. We're quite far from historical reconstruction :)
Hi, what is the secondary color with the basic natural flax in stock ? Nicolas
Hi Nicolas! Wine Red linen is shown on the pics of the listing.
Would it be possible for the lighter color to be natural linen rather than white? What would that cost?
Hi Matt! The tunic is shown in natural linen color.
Would it be possible to have the green/blue trim on the brown tunic?
Hi Matt! Yes, it is possible. Please leave this request to your order.
Hello! I love the style & trim of this tunic, but was wondering if the colored band at the bottom could be made narrower by custom order - more like the hem on the "Jarl Eric" tunic? Thanks for your consideration & have a great day!
Hi Stefanie! Yes, it is possible. Please simply leave this request to your order.
Great looks, can you make this with midnight blue (as seen in "Viking linen pants") trims ?
Can be made with midnight blue accents upon request, please add a comment to your order.
Can you cut side or front & back slits in this? Thank you. Rowena
Yes, such modification costs $15 extra. Please add a comment about placing and length of the slits to your order.
