@Cleav can you inform us Yanks about current British customs on the wearing of regimental tie stripes?Is it still a faux pas to wear a tie from a military unit that you have no connection to? Or have customs about that loosened?From the Hober site:http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/forum/showthread.php?61358-Which-way-should-Regimental-stripes-go
