I find interesting that this is a choice. in fact the exact opposite is the case

I do not know tha answer to that I'm sorry. sumptory laws (to the best of my knowledge) were enacted to reduce consumption so I would assume they were property laws.

Quote:
Sumptuary Laws were imposed by rulers to curb the expenditure of the people! Such laws might apply to food, beverages, furniture, jewelry and clothing. These Laws were used to control behaviour and ensure that a specific class structure was maintained. Sumptuary Laws dated back to the Romans!

Perhaps you should do some research of your own.
