Yes, do not attempt to stray into dandy territory unless you know what you're doing and can handle being "noticed."

Truly - I must admit, any interest I have in things like sports jackets, button downs etc. was birthed by my superiors at work. Put simply, they liked how I looked, and were vocal about it.

As long as that's not still why you do it...?

You can find sources out there talking about how this worked in the Ivy heyday, too... Guys would wear their tweeds and madras to class, but then they graduated, it was conservative business suits every day... The Kennedy brothers are a great example of this in action... and of course the reason was that in the business world, that's how you dressed, you'd be looked down upon otherwise... And that's still true in fields like law... But in other places, that kind of mentality started declining even a few years before the '70s -

What I'm saying is, in 2018, dressing in Ivy or 1960s business dress (3/2 suits, black oxfords, repp ties) is as individualistic as suede, jeans and cowboy boots at a buttoned-down would have been in 1966... so it honestly seems to me that dressing that way because your superiors expect it of you is missing the point somewhat...

Re: Peaky Blinders style

Did he produce the Glen Plake films?

I went on a course with another skiing Warren - Warren Smith. A week in Verbier, with one of the most expensive lift passes in Europe (still cheap compared to American lift prices though). Anyway, we did not see that much of the area as he tended to use the same slopes and revisit basic drills. There was video analysis afterwards where I came out quite well. Then towards the end of the course we went off to a mogul field where I managed to break my leg when the ski binding did not release. Moral of the story? You cant teach an old dog new tricks. At least had most of the week skiing.

Re: Peaky Blinders style

I actually have a baseball cap from Ideal Cap Company, Krazy Kat logo and short brim, very much like a cricket cap... Hard to pull off so I don't wear it much but I still love it...

Sunstroke? A wool baseball cap stays cool during summer doesnt hold the smell of sweat, keeps the sun out your eyes. Its actually a pretty decent invention as far as headwear goes. You also look like an American which is great because I dont like a lot of traditional British clothes. Maybe if I was going for a complete Sports Direct look it wouldnt be that great.

Those early ones are great but look a lot like school caps, I really like the stripe cadet style ones from the early 1900s too but again not some that you can really wear now.

I concur with The Laird, the baseball cap is perfectly acceptable attire for the Americans.
