Hmm.. I never heard of squires having chains and spurs, at least in the SCA
anyway.

That's not quite accurate.  Some kingdoms blue belts are much more common 
for squires than red.

But generally they are not reserved.  If you have a spiffy outfit that 
historically would wear a red belt, feel free.  And don't take any guff that

you're presenting yourself as a squire.  You're wearing an accurate piece of

dress at an event, and that should be appreciated.  But be prepared, someone

probably will take umbrage.

Sir Morgan - Who's not really sure why anyone would "pretend" to be a squire

anyway.

Very true. And a red belt alone is not indicative of a squire. There are a
neck chain and spurs to complete the insignia set. Same for a knight with a
white belt. 

 

Without the chain and spurs they are just colored bits of leather to
coordinate with your outfits.
