Draping expensive clothes over me is generally futile.

But.

I need to wear something fashionably vintage and driving-oriented for the charity thing I'm doing on 9/26.

So, suggestions are welcome (no, I'm not wearing a banana hammock and driving gloves).

Help me look like less hot garbage.

Spending ceiling gotta be less than $500.

These places look like fun



Modern driver? https://overtheroadapparel.com/

This is a perfect question for GRM, BTW. Someone over there has probably done this.

Button down bill cap.
When my folks were newlyweds they had a 61 Triumph TR3.
Dad wore a button down bill cap and smoked a pipe.
The car sat so low to the road and the doors cut down so far he could just bang his pipe out on the road.

He also had a brand new 63 impala ss when they met and they also had a 64 vw beetle at some point back then.

Then they had kids and didn't have cool cars anymore.

I'm driving an early 1970s car, so that would be the ideal.
