Yes, but consider how much the Britts seem to be amused with the "worn-out, frat boy" look, hence the fact that they have their first Abercrombie and Fitch store on the way. While most of us wouldn't be caught dead in anything from there, it is a bit of a novelty for them, the way Burberry is for us. And some of their shirts used to be really cool and slim-fitting. I admit, I do own two items with the checks on them, a travel raincoat (wouldn't take a trip in the spring/summer w/o it) and a pair of cuff links, because, well, they are too cool not to wear .
