Well, what an excellent thread. A great idea. I never knew about these. These would make great pocket squares. I have several shops here in Okc I could inquire at on the edging. Are these web sites reputable should I decide to order one?

I think this one is slightly better, although a few dollars more: http://www.omnimap.com/catalog/access/silkmaps.htm

Actually, I am quite interested in that kind of thing, and I have a found a few scarves on the two sites you mentioned that could be of interest for me. Do you have any idea of what the best sources for French army collectibles (or replica) would be?

Arms/firearms/blank arms or militaria? I've always wanted one of those French empire gilt field-marshal belt buckles to put on a jean belt.

Rather militaria I could use in some fashion context. Belt buckle, scarf... I don't care if they are vintage or good replica.

I actually found a set of scarves on the first website you mentioned, with a French and a German scarf (replicas) from the 1880's, and I am considering buying the set as a gift for a close German friend of mine.

For replicas I think there are quite a few people who make reproductions for re-enactors - those replicas are generally very well made, although that's outside my field. There are some fantastic original belt buckles, blazer buttons and trimmings like that to be had. I had Austro-Hungarian cavalry uniform buttons on an old blazer once - stunning. If you can get hold of an original UK Sam Browne belt, the shoulder-strap can easily be made into a nice bridle-leather belt, for example.

Forgot posting the milsurp belts and buckles here: The aforementioned Sam Browne shoulder-strap: A couple of others:

Mapscarves.com are selling contemporary maps of major tourist cities. Their small size is only down to 21"^2, so still bulky for a pocket square, but there must be a demand for these...
