I was in Oxford just sort of killing time (waiting on somebody looking at something in the Bod) so I went to one of the big hotels at the center of the town to have some tea. they sat me at a table next to these two very old gentleman (late 80s or 90s.)
I got the impression through my eavesdropping (what? I was alone and bored) that they had been at Oxford together before the war. I believe they were scientists at Oxford, or at least that one of them was, because he was talking about how jarring it was to the physics community to be cut off from all of the important people and work going on in Germany.
Anyway, the point is, they were the absolute picture of British trad- DB navy blazers, red suspenders, and- yep- tucked ties.
