The notion of an 'X-foot rule' is common among re-enactor/recreationist types and means basically that something looks acceptably close to 'period' from a distance of X feet (where X = whatever distance an outside observer may be from the item in question). In the case of my poly fleece lined wool cloak and hood (14th c style, I should specify), people have gotten quite close (within 3 feet) without noticing or commenting on the lining.

May I show my ignorance of this subject and ask what the ' 3-foot rule' is? Is it a slang term? I've never heard that term used before.
