Re: [SCA Newcomers] A question I have / Pirate garb
- Might I propose a different possibility?
Pirates stole things in a water-based setting. They stole clothes. They
also wore clothes. I posit that there was no such thing as 'pirate garb' --
just 'stolen garb that fits'. If this is the case, figure out what your
victims would have worn and wear a hodge-podge. Presumably you were
sufficiently successful to steal from more than one victim and therefore
could pick what you liked. And, because pirates were outside regular social
norms, social pressures to wear a particular garb would be less of an
influence, therefore you would wear what *you* liked, not what was fashionable.
Does this make sense?
