Geezer, you must be a rare exception. I work in the Square Mile, in one the UK's ever-popular investment banks. I wear black monkstraps on occasion but very rarely see another pair. What I do see are lots of square-toed loafers and the occasional pair of ridden hard, put away wet Derbies. Having worked in the City on and off for the last twenty years I can confirm its reputation for any sort of male sartorial elegance is grossly inflated. The best dressed City workers...
I've a khaki Barbour and an olive green Hackett field jacket. Love them both. The Hackett's lined so better for the Autumn and is just getting to the sort of "lived-in" state I like them to look. The barbour's still a little too box-fresh.
