To maintain our equilibrium, can we also ban:

tweed
Hackett
Gieves
Thomas Pink
Cordings
Gucci
Barbour
Loden
Spotty ties and hankies
anything from Farlows or dear Johnny Boden except this for Fiona:
also rule out that daft shop on the square in Cirencester and Mole Valley Farmers??

( also: any "civvies" bought from Goldings with uniform allowance )

Are you some sort of track-suited socialist?

I suspect you would enjoy the Mess I currently live in, which often resembles a 'Big Issue' sellers' convention, so much of the Devil's cloth is worn.

If all the makes you listed were banned, what would a gentleman wear?

You'd be in an RAF mess then? 8)
Indeed, though there are a number of Army & RN officers here as well. The lack of standards is disappointing, though I suppose people might take a little more trouble if the Mess was maintained properly so that it was a decent place to live.

Once in the NATO Mess in Sennelager a group of young officers from a certain corps (no names etc but one of the supposedly better corps) were in the bar dressed in a fashion that even charvers would find iffy. Their CO appeared towards the end of the evening and a certain crusty wandered up to him and asked him if it was true that Oxfam had been appointed Corps tailor. Laugh I nearly spilt me pint.
