Lots of tweeds and heavy classic English cloths in those drafty ancient buildings. Odd waistcoats, watch chains. Google J.R.R. Tolkien and there you are.
Most are still completely stylish and appropriate, but cloths are thinner thanks to central heating. The three piece tweed suit is a little costumey now, more's the mournful pity.
