Dressing like a gentleman #

The first and last word on attire from Douglas Sutherland's The English Gentleman:
  The knack gentlemen have of dressing badly and getting away with it is best illustrated by the story of the gentleman who was accosted by a friend walking along Piccadilly in clothes which were well below the best sartorial standards.

  'It does not matter how I dress in London,' he claimed. 'Nobody here knows me.'

  Later the same friend visited him in the country where his clothes were no better.

  'It does not matter how I dress here', he said, 'Everybody knows me.'
