Not that long ago, hats were used commonly. Today a hat is such a bold statement that very few can wear one without looking dressed up like a movie character. Luckily there is an alternative for the gentleman who wants to cover his head without giving the film noir impression. The flat cap (certainly not the baseball cap though) is nowadays the dominant and therefore also the most democratic hat garment of rural England.

The button-down shirt has been called America's sole contribution to shirt fashion. One should therefore think carefully before adding one (even if it is a classic pink Brooks Brothers "Oxford", bought on a trip to New York), to one's wardrobe, if one wishes to maintain the appearance of a conscious Anglofile. The button-down is for American Ivy-Leagers. The English Gentleman has no use for it.
