[ANSTHRLD] Sumptuary question

Depending on the visual impact of the metal brocade, probably.  My coronet, for example, is a leather strip which ties in the back and is highlighted with gold paint - but the impact from the front or side at a reasonable distance is one of metal.  Make sense?

Would a tablet-woven band brocaded with a metalic thread fall into the
catagory of "metal" and therefore be regulated as a fillet by the sumptuary
laws?  The latest version of the law I can find online (2006) states that
fillets for members of the poulace must not be more than 1/2 inch, and the
desired materials and pattern would create a band between 5/8 & 3/4 inch
wide.  The metalic brocade section would not fully encircle the head but
begin just behind the ears.
