>>By custom, this implied that only
knights should wear spurs. For a time, Atenveldt had a set of sumptuary laws
that included specifications that only knights could wear *roweled* spurs
and only dukes could wear gold roweled spurs. I objected at the time
because, historically, gold spurs were the mark of a knight.

I do know that in the East it was "traditional" for squires to have silver
chains and spurs. Anyone could wear black spurs. Spurs are actually quite
useful if your at Pennsic. If you're laying on one of the hills you can dig
in with the spurs and not go sliding down it.
