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

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.
