    Ahh, I see. Well, he does traditional streetwear better than any of us (so far).


    I'll just leave this here as a little filler. Also, I am in the middle of moving, and have no idea where my clothes are at the moment.

    And, for reference, here is the town from whence I came.

    I felt that a trench coat was traditional, something a lot of people don't wear too much anymore.

    Lanvin trench coat (80s?)
    Gianfranco Ferre black wool suit (90s, I think)
    Prada tie (Current; I probably tied it wrong and it's too thin for this look I guess. Maybe I should post in MC for some pointers)
    Bally dress shoes (2000s)

    Feels like I need a fedora and maybe a cigarette. Throwing in the vintage-y filter for free.

    What are the rules in terms of how recent the outfit is?

    Will accept older fits

    Also I may extend this a week to see if we can get a few more entries. So far what we have is very strong but pretty limited in number.

    Since you are accepting older fits I might as well throw down with this fairly recent one. Trad/Ivy has always been a fascination of mine. Right down to the white bucks.

    A hundred years ago, outhouses in England were rarely climate controlled, giving rise to the "bathroom suit." Often tweed to provide warmth and some protection from brambles as you walked between your country home and the outhouse. Its use carried over into the 1990's even as bathrooms were brought in doors as generally they were still the coldest room in the house.

    I imagine the traditional tweed is also a reflection of the bathroom suit's progenitor, the English country suit. Whereas country suits were often worn without squares and with hacking pockets, a proper outhouse/bathroom/WC rig will always have a square: you never know when you find yourself without toilet paper (I hope y'all forgive this little misstep in my entry). And they should also have patch pockets to easily store reading material; traditional English diet has very little in the way of fiber.
