    Informal (miscellany for activities and practical variations)

    It is traditional to be wise about the weather and to alter one’s dress accordingly. While this may sometimes result is a less smart or strictly THCD look, common sense must prevail, which is actually quite traditional! Sartorial accommodations and compromises for different types of activities are also reasonable, although one can still aim at maintaining a generally traditional appearance. In a nutshell, form follows function.

    N.B. some variations may been seen among Xmarkers that are not in widespread use and, notwithstanding their practicality, should be understood as idiosyncratic (i.e., pith helmets, spats/gaiters, etc).



    Wet weather (rain jackets, wellies, umbrellas)









    Cold weather (parkas/anoraks, glove/mittens, scarves, boots)











    Hiking and hill walking, (jackets, boots, packs)

    I'll add this picture, which I've not seen before on X Marks, to illustrate a different type of footwear worn with THCD.

    Ah yes, wellies. A very practical type of footwear for wet, mucky weather, as shown by Sandy in the second pic of post #12. The photo you've shared shows the boots a bit more clearly though
