I was always under the impression that when you wear an "Epaulette Bearing The Crest Of Blackthorn" that it only shows up on the paperdoll and doesn't effect your avatar. While I was at the salon today I noticed after getting my hair dyed that there was a strange black line showing and spoiling my beautiful new locks. I then started to strip down until I found what part of my clothing was causing this. It was the item I was least expecting, my epaulette. Below is a picture to explain what I mean. This is in the EC so maybe just a problem for EC users. Left is with epaulette on, right is with it taken off.
