I was told our colors are red, khaki and black. Is that true? Then..would it be poor form to go with that for my minimal set...like say...a set of black pants, red gloves, and khaki tunic?

Or no? Opinions anyone?

I don't think it'd that bad. Keeping to the colors is good, but I'm thinking that's mostly for events.

I have a red and black robe that I started today, and I should have it done on Thursday. But for practice garb I wouldn't care what color they are, I just really like black and red anyway. Lol.

But I've got a more specialized battle robe that's in the planning stages that is dark green and navy blue. But it's all up to your preference.

Hell if I know. It's what I've been told by Knubbs, Strider and whoever else since I've been here. I think Knubbs said it's because we're 'desert people'. I'm just trying to order my first set of garb with Dan, and wanted to know the colors.

Those are just the colors of the sashes that we came up with. As far as I'm aware the only actual color that we have is the dress uniform.

I was told some basic colors and i went with it.

I based the colors i was going to pick based off a couple factors.

1 - we live in a desert. Lighter colors are better and usually allow a forgiveness for medieval wear in the heat (color: Khaki, light browns, tan)
2 - Our descendants and our "families" were sailors so i intergrated a blue color.
3 - All the other colors i talked about were on the ranks insignia and also thoughts and ideas I had brought up to Surt before.

Being as that we havent finalized anything through surt dont finish off your color schemes quite yet.

Sorry if i mislead anyone.

Yeah, I was thinking khaki or brown from the Sashes, and even the background of the banner. Gold, the tower should be golden, red from the star beneath the tower as well as the mercenary star, and black because, well, its black. (my personal colors are black, silver and red)

We were about to make some loaner tabards/surcoats out of khaki and paint red mercenary stars on them.

I was also thinking of buying some khaki or tan cloth and painting a golden tower over a red star as a temporary realm banner to take to St. George on the 19th.

We, Kilanos, Oddvar and I, were all set to combine our talents on them, and I think money issues got in the way again. But the idea is still on the back burner. We were going to start with like 4 sets, Tabards and belts. Each would take about 2 yards of cloth, some hemming, a cardboard stencil of the mercenary star and some paint. Oddvar was going to buy the cloth, Kilanos was going to do the hemming and I was going to do the paint job. Oh, donations for old belts would have worked to. Soon to come, soon to come.

As for old belts, check the thrift stores or use rope.
