    Interesting. So many great possibilities. I was born in South Africa and I have a kick-ass vintage field coat dating back to the Angolan Bush War. My citizenship is Canadian and I have a Roots leather bomber with some interesting trim details.


    ...aaaaaand I'm out. Good luck, guys.

    I don't have a formal jacket from my country so I hope this works instead:

    Naturally I have a whole closetfull of them. For this one I'm considering going with the pirate coat.

    We've all survived through a week, why not loosen our formality a bit? It's formal enough for the office without the stiffness of a blazer.
