Further to the above: any thoughts on where I could get a smallish silk / similar scarf to wear under a shirt like a day cravatte? Or would it be eaier to just get a rectangle of silk friom a haberdashers and hem it?
Cool, thanks. I've managed to convince myself that a cravat would be wrong with this particular get up, but like the idea in principle.
Other thing (and a ludicrously open-ended question): I've bought myself an off-white flat cap, for keeping the sun off my head at times when a big floppy sunhat isn't appropriate. It's good, and very versatile. But I'm sure there's some bit of a gangster film where someone wears something similar, and I have no idea what - the closest I can get is the brown caps that Michael and his bodyguards wear in Sicily in The Godfather. Any ideas?
