I emailed a few days ago and no reply yet...
But you're in England, the home of two of the greatest umbrella manufacturers in the world!
James Smith & Sons:
Here's a story on James Smith & Sons:
I don't think you are too far off with it but I'd keep the RM's, swap the trousers for denim and the shirt for something softer and more casual like a blue OCBD. But then I fall firmly in the camp of not liking the whole barbour/belstaff look with suits/work attire.
Yes, I'd also accessorise with a meat pie and football scarf, chunky knit, and a Triumph Bonneville.
Seems like a good match as RMW are about as Australian as QANTAS these days...
Sauce or Ketchup on the pie?
Isn't it called "dead horse"?
That's what's in the pie.

Interesting article here about Zegna buying into a NSW sheep station .
Interesting indeed. When I worked in commodities trading, we had quite a bit of discussion internally about going long the supply as well, as an alternative way to go long - particularly in places where asset prices were depressed for structural reasons and we could get a good deal. It's a trade-off between that, and the cost of diversification. Cargill for example is involved in virtually every business to do with grains - they even own or control port facilities and farm equipment businesses, and I think they have a seeds/genetics department as well - EXCEPT actually growing the stuff.
I wonder what made Zegna decide to go long right now. Supplying commodities is a brutal business best left to specialists... better sell shovels than be a miner.
Looking like a merchant banker, Foxy, (not in a bad way!)
