The British Influence: Non-Clothing Discussion For

Britain has had perhaps more influence on menswear than any other country. We owe the British for khakis, button down collars, and corduroy trousers. Tattersalls came from the racing yard and auctions of James Tattersall, and jeans from the Huguenots who fled to England. These, a small neighborhood known as The Row, a tradition of weaving fine cloths and the Rules about what is proper are just a smattering of what Britain has brought to bear on the world's sartorial experience. Understanding the traditions and values of a culture helps us to understand its clothing style(s). The British forum is for discussions on Highland dress, Oxbridge traditions and other Britishness. Discussions about British merchants and makers, recommendations and availability of certain products and discussions of mainstream clothing such as business, casual, sporting, and evening wear should take place in the Fashion or Trad Forum.
