The stroller was popular for a while in the USA, but was pretty much gone by the sixties or even sooner. Once in a while somebody would wear them and I would hear an older person mention it. I hear there are a few churches where usher still wear them (tradition). It is a neat "suit" and a worthy one. So to say, another way to play with clothes. Clothes are to be fun. Never knock people playing with clothes- it is the tailors job bo make them, else wise the history books would be empty of clothes. Do not scoff your trade!

Thank you all for the advice. I ended up picking a charcoal Lesser SFT, because the formalwear bunch had a striped trousering that I was rather fond of.

Did you get the DB waistcoat in a contrasting colour? Or one that matches the coat?

Well done on the fabric, Rogier! A great-looking combination. Lesser! That's putting your money where your mouth is.

How's the CMT turning out?

How stroller is related to suits or coats? I knew about stroller that these are pushchairs for babies which are also known as prams.

The word stroll has several meanings or variations. Some years ago some guys at one forum wore strollers to church. If I remember correctly one guy said that the ushers always wore strollers at church when their turn to be usher. Sort of a church uniform. Some had several colors. A stroller is a certain combination of clothes. A suit is a different combination. And then there are other combinations, white tie, black tie, military and so on. In other countries it may have different names if they exist there.

 

Wife says to husband. "Take a stroll." in other words, go for a walk. "Oh! And take the baby with you." So the baby carriage then started to be called a stroller. A combination of clothes looks better for walking and people start calling it a stroller. Therefore, the husband takes a stroll pushing a baby in a stroller and he is wearing a stroller. Perhaps that is how the combination became. Words are always up for change and new additions. The word run has many additions, and there will be some new ones.
