      I never said I *agreed* with those "some"...

      Yes, certainly. I never said that we should recreate non-period things. I
      was just saying that while the clothing protrayed in the series might get
      *close* to period, they weren't documentable *as* period, and shouldn't be
      used as a model for SCA use.
