Not cargo and no belt, but most items are from US trad companies and three are over 30 yrs old. If anyone's wondering why it's so much better than my usual crappy selfies, this was taken by my 7 yr old daughter.

Close colors, but wrong sweater style ...

Right sweater style, wrong colors

And an "inspired by"; since this is all about American Trad, I thought I'd go right to the source (G9, OCBD, cream pants). And who doesn't look for an excuse to steal some McQueen style?

My lame attempt to give that King of Cool stare (plus, I don't have a pipe).

I'll decide on the final entry by the end of day. Cheers everyone!

I very nearly bought a vintage Gloverall duffle coat last winter. Decided I was probably a bit old for it.
I bought a Gloverall duffle coat after all! I really need a decent long coat for standing around in and I haven't had any luck getting a nice thick and long overcoat. Next step, the Manfred Mann chin strap beard :)
