Whatever troubles you might be bringing up, Most excellent "Trouble Maker," can be worked without offence to most and possibly avoiding any.
The problem is not in the details, it is in the principles.

> I also wear one, and yes, it is a tool I wipe off the mud with. The tassel is forest green, about a foot long, with a white band and red (smaller) band on top of that. It's appropriate to a Midrealm Forester - similar to the set up of our Forester's hoods. The point is, however, that it is a personal tassel, like yours, not Regalia. Until such time as they are outlawed (God Forbid that were even possible), wear yours in good health.
> There is precious little Real Regalia in the SCA (spurs, certain chains- even red belts aren't Law, as such); I wouldn't get too worried about tassels. We can't stop others wearing green hoods here, nor would we want to, confusing as it sometimes is to the uninformed. Neither would I presume to wear a white or red bracer, though technically I could, if I wished to flout other Kingdom's traditions.
