I'm fake because I like some things from J. Press and Alden but don't dress completely Trad? Come on, that doesn't follow at all. There are certain Trad/Ivy things I like a lot and freely adopt, but I don't dress strictly in that way.
I have trouble imagining an event to which a suit would be too dressy, but where tweed odd jackets would be wrong. I mean, what are you saying, that only
a navy blue blazer would do?
