Quote from: Eclipse on October 08, 2021, 05:12:39 PMThis goes with it.https://www.vanguardmil.com/products/civil-air-patrol-gold-vermiel-blue-locketI could see a CAP spouse wearing this at a black tie or similar, I suppose.
Quote from: Spam on October 08, 2021, 04:47:31 PMThe picture shows it upside down, I think. The hook would be worn facing downwards, with a symbolic key, or other accoutrements hanging from it to denote the mistress of the house, e.g. the wife of the Commander. This isn't a uniform wear item, but rather is costume jewelry based on the 18th/19th century fashion for women of substance to have a pin or brooch from which to hang their keys to the valuables, etc. (from days when womens fashions didnt include pockets).If someone wanted to denote the Commanders wife in a reception line, this would be one possible way to do it, I suppose. Steampunk CAP style?R/sSpam(quick edit: please don't cite my speculation as some source for suggesting wear of this in CAP receiving lines, etc. I would find using this as some sort of status signal a bit pretentious, actually, and I don't believe that any armed services actually do anything like that. If some commander wants to go buy one to mark out his Offred or whatever, just go buy a red cape, it would be more clear to the rest of us).
