<<Does it mean anything if you wear a torque?>>
A torque itself doesn't have any specific meaning in the course of the SCA
as a whole. It MAY have specific meaning to a particular household or group,
but that would be specific to them and would probably not preclude anyone
else wearing one - after all, they were a common jewelry item in certain
times/places. Of course, if it were to carry the symbols of an order on it - such
as the terminals being Pelicans or something - than it would mean something,
but a plain torque should be fine.
You might check the Outlands webpage to see if they have any sumptuary laws
in their kingdom law and policy; that would tell you if there is anything
specific to the Outlands regarding them.
