Drank a few beers whilst writing some comedy with friends. Pub for a few more beers. Fine so far. Then on to the bar of a hotel where a visiting friend is staying.

I'd always assumed that the stuff in the UK stores was a mixture of english, italian and other goods. I wouldn't be suprised if, for instance, the polos and jumpers are made in a far-off land.
I have to say that I'd always previously thought that anyone diverting from classic black tie looked awful, but I have to say I love this jacket. Not my size, though.
