What I was told:
The British are very austere.

What I have observed:
For the most part, this is true. In their manners and speech, especially with those they are not acquainted with, they appear to be quite cold. However, they wear their clothes and expressions with a hefty dose of irony. Under their precision-pressed trousers you can catch a glimpse of flashy patterned socks; along the road you see a grown man wearing a child's beaver hat while deeply involved in what appears to be an academic debate.
