The definition of 'Town', relevant to the custom of "No Brown In Town"

Someone asked me about this and I think that 'town' in this context means the City and the West End of London (and the centres of the world's other capital cities which have fallen under British influence), excepting the parks. Rus in urbe , such as tweeds and brogues, is a better option in 'town' than jeans and trainers (sneakers) but, despite the opinions of the modern trend-setters, I generally stand by the old custom of 'No Brown In Town': Touché!
