I think that, traditionally and going back a long way, the dress code was for Smugglers and Custom Officers. So the tail coat and top/bowler hat was for the Customs Officers, who in at least once society were effectively the procession marshalls (like those that now where the red sash).
May be utter rubbish, but it makes sense why it has been done through time.

Think I might wear a Zulu headress with my Viking this year
