It appears both emperor and king have entourage wear their adjutant aiguillette all time. However, it doesn’t seem to common otherwise. 
 

great thread

I agree... Big Willi's Flugel Adjutant has it on quite often, which makes a comparison with little Willi interesting... the tinsel is not to be seen... or out of camera...

It makes it more plausible to me that the Kings/Kaiser were still big on ceremony and tradition, whereas the Crown Princes were soldiers, commanding armies, with less time and interest for such finery... the 2 pics I found of Rupprecht's staff show a very "dressed for work" bunch, none of the shiny entourage that followed the Kaiser and Bavarian king.

I think this may be fairly specific to the ranking individual concerned - one of the pics I posted shows what seems to be an adjutant to a unit or general with a sash, another shows Prinz Alfons with what appears to be a personal adjutant. At the same time, the pics I have of Wilhelm II of Württemberg show no adjutants with sash or aguilettes, and neither do the pics I have of  Rupprecht.

Pleasure Bayern, that is what the forum should be about. There are more in the thread on the Kleindekoration des Schwarzen Adlerordens in the orders and decorations section.
