A good option for literally a labourer, longshoreman, coal miner, or something of that ilk (usually North of England based - proximity to London and youthfullness were, as they have always been really, heavily related to the importance of fashion in the wearer) is a collarless shirt, a pair of high back black British railway trousers (stick a turnup in them) and BR waistcoat and an ecky thump cap. Ask your local steam railway about the trousers and waistcoat - they turn up regularly on ebay too. Collarless shirts are also common on ebay, get something non white and make sure its the type that can take a collar (so a button hole on both sides of the collar band and one at the rear, rather than a button and buttonhole at the front) even if you don't wear one. A jersey will work in place of a shirt for the more harbourman look.

BRITISH OFFICER: Hey man, what's shakin'. What's the story with this valley? This a good place to live, you think?
NATIVE: It is very fertile. My family has lived here for many generations.
BRITISH OFFICER: Awesome. I'll put my mansion right here sorta where you're standing. Hey, what's with the triangle things?
NATIVE: Those are the sacred pyramids where my ancestors are buried.
BRITISH OFFICER: Cool. There any kinda zombie curse or anything we should know about? I mean, I want to pillage'em, but I don't want to cause no problems.
NATIVE: Our people lie merely asleep in their graves, waiting to shriek forth and bring agonising death to any who would dare disturb their peace.
BRITISH OFFICER: Be serious.
NATIVE: ...in truth the curse is probably apocryphal.
BRITISH OFFICER: Wicked. Carter, bust out the Gatling guns! I want to be revered as a God by teatime.
