Supposedly Caesar wore a red cloak in battle so his men could easily see him. That would indicate it was something the others did not do, or else it wouldn't make him stand out.

POLL DESCRIPTION
As reported in Ancient Warfare magazine (based on a report in Das Spiegel magazine), researchers at the Mannheim Reiss-Engelhorn Musuem have discovered that Roman soldiers wore lots of colors… just not red, as it was considered a "feminine" color.

Do you expect that wargamers will repaint their armies?
