Austrian Nationalist Style

Heinz-Christian Strache, leader of Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs (FPO), which recently received over 18% of the vote in the Austrian elections. Note the corduroy jacket, white dress shirt, and crew-neck sweater. And beer.

No loden? No Lederhosen?

^ No, but Jörg Haider whose party BZÖ also surged from ~4 to 11% since he took lead again recently often wears traditional clothes.

Strache is originally from Vienna and therefore doesn't wear "Trachten" a lot.
