A quick Google search on "sabretache" turns up 
<http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~thinred/ceremonial.html>, an 
entire catalog of British uniform items.

The sabretache goes for 1.45 hectopounds.  It doesn't look like 
something _I'd_ want to wear around town, but that's just me.  The 
insignia part is bigger than the pouch part on this model.

If you don't want to go for replication, the item generally known in 
the U.S. as a fanny pack sounds like the nearest contemporary 

I couldn't find a site specializing in the late Commonwealth period 
of Urth. If I could I'd go for the _Terminus Est_ loving reproduced 
even down to the signature of Jovinian on the tang of the blade.  If 
they won't sell me one, I'll have them killed in a duel and claim it 
as my victor's right.
