Gents,

I've stumbled upon the British comedy show "A Bit of Fry and Laurie". The clothing is pretty interesting and enjoyable to see but I can't tell if it's reflective of the times (the show aired from 1989-1995) or if they are used more like props for comedic effect (or both). The clothes in general make me think "trad".

As an aside, I like the mac jacket worn by Hugh Laurie at 3:36 of Season 1, ep 2 here:


Cheers,

-Chris

Likewise, Jeeves and Wooster can be used for sartorial inspiration. One of the running jokes is Bertie pushing the edge of contemporary fashion while Jeeves tries to pull Bertie back toward conservative norms.

Cheers,

There's a great cameo, by the way, of Fry and Laurie in The New Statesman, where Stephen Fry is in a very Thatcherite suit:
