Much of classic men’s style is divided into country and city clothing. Country being things such as Shetland wool sweaters, heavy tweed jackets, and ribbed corduroy trousers. Outerwear includes waxed cotton coats, sometimes with game pockets, and shoes are made from pebble grained leathers and often feature brogueing. Whatever its many expressions, the spirit is always rustic casualness.
On the other side is city. Here we have everything from the sharp pinstripe suit to the more casual, soft shouldered sport jacket worn with a pair of odd trousers. Coats include cotton trenches and wool Chesterfields, and shoes are often oxfords made from smooth calf (brown or black, depending on your religion). This side of the divide tends to be a bit more formal.
