Not to argue, but I would respectfully disagree. MANY sellers, perhaps, but
not ALL Sellers.
Well, anything is theoretically possible; even the clueless get lucky. I've certainly seen sites with 600 pieces of garbage and one magnificent, spot-on period outfit. (If you know of any sites that are selling only accurate clothes but have a labelling problem, please tell me!)
But if everything they've got is marked "Medieval, Renaissance, Celtic, Renfair, SCA and LARP"-- don't trust them to even know which of those labels might actually be semi-correct. If you're new to the SCA, you'll like the results much better if you only buy from sites that specify only one of Dark Ages, Medieval, or Renaissance for a given garment.
