Your clothes will be dictated to some extent by your gang membership and rank, as discussed with the Waiters. Within those restrictions, you can borrow from history and random objects. But if it looks expensive, you might find yourself the prey of a tosher.

Whilst things can escalate to violence at the Floating Market, it's the exception rather than the norm. Coming to the Market armed for trouble is viewed as the intention to cause some. Coming armed for self-defence is common sense. There's a fine line between the two. Guns are non-existent. This is England, after all, and no one wants to get arrested/shot by an over-eager London Met. Besides, who needs a gun in a place where paint can really screw with the laws of physics? In fact, due to inner-city venues, the Waiters frown upon any kind of projectile at the Floating Market. If you must use mundane forms of weaponry, please make sure it's coated in latex.

If it's likely to be used in violence, it needs to be cleared with the Waiters first. Otherwise, nothing is rubbish and rubbish is everything. Be inventive.
