No, but they aren`t glaringly mundane -- wearing a small bit of
embroidered cloth on one`s person is a little more pre-17th C looking
than a T-shirt.
Souveniers *are* in period -- I recall seeing a slide of a bread-pan that
was supposed to have been a souvenier from a Holy Land church -- and
while there is no precedence for a bit of cloth which symbolically means
"I went to the Merry Rose Tavern and all I got was this silly thing,"
well, there`s no precedence for calling a guy who`s been king twice a
duke, but we seem to manage to get along with that just fine (in my
persona`s time, a guy who`d been king twice would have been killed at
least once) ;) ...
