I would advise trying kit on before you buy - fencing kit is cut differently to high-street clothes! Note that some of the club coaches can arrange to bring kit to the club on request.
PBT UK - based near
Guildford. Talk to Ian (one of our coaches) if you

costs - he may even have what you want in his van outside

Blades Brand UK

Allstar-Uhlmann in Laleham
Fighters - internet only with keen prices, but note:
