Hell, I'd wear it. I have no problem with this trend. Most people are going to ignore it anyway - it's too much work. Yes, the whole RLPL/'sartorial' movement is largely a fictitious history to get people to throw out their old clothes and buy new ones, but so what? The clothing of the 1930s, to me, looked nice. The English-style suit, again, to me, looks nice - whether it's a product of history or the figment of a modern designer's imagination. I find it a flattering cut, and so I might buy a few examples of it. I won't throw out my entire wardrobe in favor of it, but I can find some room for it, certainly. If a clothing manufacturer makes clothes that you like, and that are flattering on you, you can hardly be said to be sucked into the marketing hype. If something plainly looks stupid on me, I'm not going to wear it simply because it's in. And besides, did your PDC jeans come in an absolutely pristine dark blue wash? Did you have to wear them for 2 years to get that '2-year' look? No, they came off the hanger that way, because some marketing whiz knew they'd sell more if they looked 'authentic'.. If the English-suit guys are the victim of a marketing experiment, then you are too, surely?
