That’s our next Prime Minister that you are mocking! (Hopefully not)

At last, visitors with a sense of style.
From the 1930's, perhaps, but stylish nonetheless.

PS. I did have to google him. Mock Mogg? Never!

Tracy Ullman does a great impression of JRM's nanny.

I thought Boris was going to be the next PM.

If a moneybelt is apparently necessary if you want to visit Europe, should I invest in a bullet proof vest if I want to visit the US?

Nanny for the children, but he'll have his valet, or 'gentleman's gentleman' as well. I mean, doesn't every chap have one?

Welcome to New York, Jacob Rees-Mogg and family! Why mock? The daughter looks perfectly dressed for the oppressive heat and humidity as does Mrs. Rees-Mogg, funny floppy tennis hat from the late '70s notwithstanding (ok, I mocked the choice of the hat). The boy in the sweater vest? It may be windy up there but cold? As for the father, he looks dapper! Applause for him.

It isn't like JR-M uses Boris' barber.

Looks okay to me other than sweating to death in the July heat!

From JRM to Kirsty McColl in 14 posts – I’m impressed.

We can tell he’s gone casual from the buttons on his blazer.

Given the sad events recently, perhaps for Chicago

This may help explain why there are questions by Americans regarding what they should wear on the other side of the Atlantic.

People from the UK visiting the US will fit in if they dress like Onslow (from Keeping Up Appearances).

Morten, if you want to be safe, yes, always wear your bullet proof vest, your pac-safe/slash-proof bag with locks, and your money belt. And to blend in and not be labeled a tourist, be sure to live like a local.

Best thread in a long time— bulletproof vests, Onslow, casual buttons! THANKS.

No bulletproof vest necessary.
The shootings that you read about, like in Chicago are in gang infested areas where tourist never go.

Americas don't dress that differently from Europeans.

Decades ago, when I traveled in Europe, Europeans almost never wore tennis shoes or sneakers (trainers in the UK). Americans could be picked out just by their shoes. These days that is not the case.

Flip flops are for the beach, they are not so useful in touring, especially walking a lot.

geo, they now make flip flops that cost as much as $135 and up. They have arch support and everything else you can imagine.
My best friend, because of foot issues, can only wear flip flops, the expensive ones. She can easily walk 10+ miles in them.
So what you wrote does not apply anymore.

I never realized how many people actually play tennis (good for them!) let alone choose to wear their tennis shoes off court. They're not meant for day-to-day walking because the support structure is totally different. Moreover, they're not nearly as comfortable as running shoes or cross-trainers for example.
