True.   But we ARE talking SCA sumptuary laws here, not
historical facts.  If you're going to talk historical facts, why
then, there go many (most?)  (all?) the sumptuary laws.


I was asked for SCA ideas, not historical facts.  
(I know...I know...I should try and steer people to
more "correct" ideas, historically speaking.)

{sidenote: But it hasn't worked for the 21+ years I've been in, 
why should it start now?}

Personally, I rather see an "official Society-wide" set of
sumptuary laws, based on period practices <for the few
things that apply>, and leave everything else to Kingdom Custom.
But then, I have strange ideas.
