    I am looking to recreate a mid-century country look that's more casual than that of a country gentleman (tweed, trickers, and flat caps). Please let me know where and what to look for (e.g. brands and items).

    If I haven't been clear enough, a picture of the Frenchman from Inglourious Basterds is attached below for visual reference.

    Sorry for creating such a general thread, however I couldn't find what I was looking for using the search function.

    Thank you!

    Search for Bill's WAYWT pics on Superfuture.

    I immediately thought of a tweed sport coat I saw at a Polo Ralph Lauren store.

    Also, take a look at Gilded Age. It's practically costume.

    Yeah you should check out Stronghold for jeans w/ overalls, also check out Bill's new store Craft. Neither store has an online store so that's a little difficult... but you could PM Bill on sufu or call up either store. It'd be helpful if you lived in LA but chances are you don't.
