A Trad "What are you Wearing"


Inactive User
There's one in the regular Fashion Forum and there's one in the Temporary SF Forum. Should Trads have one of their own?

I'm not sure what it means. Are we supposed to post the details of what we're presently wearing? Cheers, Harris

Yes, it's kind of silly but you can get an idea of clothing combinations. I can't say as I would be a great participant as I frequently wear the same thing day in and day out with slight variation. E.G.

Bills M1 cuffed in British khaki
BB tattersal blues on white
generic brown braided belt
C&B brown wingtips
timex on navy/red/navy band

PS forgot, Barbour Beaufort (no liner 50F)

Gross weather in the big city today, so:

Bean navy Shetland sweater
pink BB OCBD
olive foulard BB tie
khaki Bean cords
Bean low-rise duck boots
duffle coat

No sportcoat, and I feel uneay about it.
