An English Gent look

I was having a conversation with one of my peers discussing identity and looks, question came to what defines an "English gentleman's look" and what separates him from the hordes of other men/crowd. 
After some debating and reasoning my friend concluded that the following defines an English gentleman's look: a conservative well cut and perfect fitted suiting from a reputable Savile Row firm, bespoke English made Goodyear welted shoes, preferably in black or brown colours with a cap toe and well polished, a bowler hat and an umbrella.  Yes, he was right ....
Oh... not to forget the good manners and the upper stiff lip with a brush of coolness and tradition bound individual.
