    It is part of my heritage and how people define me. I'd rather go French peasant, but I might be mocked.

    This sums it up.

    More or less. That and men who shake hands with their fathers and women who spend a lot of time crying in the bathroom.

    Usually too sober or too obnoxious, but sometimes awesome.

    This sums it up.

    Sums up the forum too.

    What's wrong with this practice?

    Same can be said of Italian style minus the sober part.

    The British/English Style that most appeals to me (aside from my wife) are the items that originate from country sportswear, hunting and riding clothing. So, the tweeds, shetland sweaters, cords, etc. Those define British style to me. Those were also the main influences in US preppy clothing which is probably the reason I like it.

    All I could think of when I saw this clip is: That bigotted bastard is bad ass. I hate him, but a part of me wants to be him. [​IMG]

    I misread this at first and got nervous. Then re-read and am perfectly fine now. Continue.

    Ask not what English/British style is to you, ask what English/British style is to the English/British:
