I don't really do trad, so this is close as I get for the challenge.

harvey_birdman:J. Press suit BB OCBD University Crest tie Standing in front of a bunch of books, which I figure is worth at least 1 or 2 points on the tradometer.
NewYorkRanger:Not pictured Paul Stuart Raincoat...
woe that's a great pic but I'm not really convinced by the color selection. The trousers are where it gets to be just too much. well it's not quite trad, but I figure madras tie, button down shirt and 2.5 roll suit is sorta trad
I say, lovey! Shall we go yachting this weekend?
Okay, going at this as a double outsider. Here's my take as both a neophyte who is fairly clueless about men's fashion, and as a European, who doesn't encounter trad locally. By all means don't hold back with criticism, having read the "glory days" thread, I feel I should state I am looking to learn, and can take harsh criticism (which is probably very appropriate if anybody is willing to give it to me, but you gotta start somewhere).
Channelling my inner WASPitude, I have tried to come up with something properly Trad, even though I do not own the essential sack suit, since I look enough like a sack without my suits doing it for me. At least everything I am wearing today, save for the belt and the handkerchief, is from Brooks - what could be more Trad than that?
Friday Challenge... Trad or preppy not sure which... nevertheless.... today.... this is how I roll..... Have a great weekend.
Just a little tug on the shirt slee... snap Damn.
My entry for today's challenge.
Not being an American I don't really do Trad. Still to semi-show willing as Trad is basically bastardized English Countrywear, I wore that instead
Trad is def not my thing, as a matter of I don't think I have ever tried it before. Thanks to the Friday Challenge I am giving it a whirl. I grabbed everything Brooks Brothers I could find, a little seersucker I feel spring coming, and this is what i came up with. Big O, I hope is at least close to Trad.
Never done Trad before, here's my shot:
Can this be somehow considered as a Trad attire? It is not what I was actually wearing today. Maybe from a couple of weeks ago.
The Whole World Has To Answer Right Now Just To Tell You Once Again...Who's Trad?
My trad entry
I hate that the challenges are Fridays. So, had to configure a trad get up while going a bit more casual, so we have Brooklyn Blue Collar Trad All items made in the USA and are somewhat tradly...Red Wing Boots, Bills Khakis (these are the slim ones) and Schott OCBD. The waist could use a nip, I look like a fat bastard...looked better untucked.
CONTEST ENTRY: TRAD or MAD?
