New Releases at Legio Gloria

It is our great pleasure to announce a few additions to the Hanseatic Clothing Store. First and foremost we have the Pagan Nature and Gym Hoodie, which is made out of a thinner material and is thus suitable for endeavours during the Spring, Summer and early Autumn. It is also made with a bit of stretch in it to ensure a good and comfortable fit. Regarding the name it is a description of its purpose, the hoodie is suited for both being out in nature and being in the gym. The Raven is a beautiful Pagan symbol for those who which to represent the Old Gods.
Except for the Zealot’s Delight this is my personal favourite from our line. Proudly made in Poland.

Next up we have a pair of high quality lifting straps. Very proud to be able to list these as made in Sweden.
The colours are a light blue-grey with a thin print of black.
The print might fade as the time goes on, as a testament to your hard work in the gym. The leather itself though, should be as durable as Gleipnir, which is the binding that holds the mighty wolf Fenrir.
Recommended use: All heavy pulling movements, such as deadlifts, weighted chins, and shrugs. On the lighter pulling movements it is recommended to go without straps as to train your grip strength as well.

Moreover, we have Lord Byron’s Cultured Thug, which uses the same material as the Pagan Nature and Gym Hoodie, and is thus suited to similar endeavours, although with a bit different aesthetics. The name is taken from the following quote:

“Truthfully, in this age those with intellect have no courage and those with some modicum of physical courage have no intellect. If things are to alter during the next fifty years then we must re-embrace Byron’s ideal: the cultured thug.”

-Jonathan Bowden

The design represents this aspect with two details; the Fleur-de-Lis stands for the cultured aspect (i.e. the strive for intellectual prowess) and the brass knuckle zipper stands for the thug aspect (i.e. the strive for martial prowess). It is a similar metaphor to that of the sword and the book; the combination of physical and intellectual capacity.

Lastly, we have the Handsome Shorts Mark II. These are aesthetically speaking essentially the same as the previous edition. The difference is in the material; whereas the first edition of the Handsome Shorts were made out of 100% cotton, the Handsome Shorts Mark II are made with 92% cotton and 8% elastan. The reason for the change is beautiful in its simplicity; elastan gives you a bit more flexibility and comfort when engaging in athletic endeavours. We took a good product and made it a bit better (better as in more suited to the purpose).

All items are available at

Note, due to the extremely aesthetic nature of the garments some of them are already out of stock.
