We've got a knight in our kingdom who frequently serves as a marshal 
during tourneys. He has been around just about since rocks were soft. 
He wears engineer boots, a black cowboy hat, blue jeans, and some 
sort of shirt (i think a dark colored "poet" shirt) covered by a 
tabard in his colors. He invariably wears this outfit at events.

Just for fun, i did make a tunic out of light-medium weight denim... 
twill is period, indigo dye is period, cotton tunics are period for 
my persona... however, no copper rivets, brass zippers, or 
yellow-stitched pockets over my butt :-)

We're a far more tolerant lot than some folks would have us believe. 
The occasions of public and personal garb snarking are really rather 
few. I showed up at my first event 10 years ago in silver lame' 
shalvar and no one said a thing about them to me.
Urtatim (that's err-tah-TEEM)
the persona formerly known as Anahita
