Thanks DJ. The Casanova looks about right. I would have preferred black cuffs/collar, but I forgot to put that in my requirements, dopey git that I am!

'The': Just going back to 'mob' names, such as 'The Kilburn'. I've remembered an incident from 1969. There was a whole bunch of us in the bowling alley cafe in Lewisham one day, which one of the two places we would all regularly meet (the other being the Savoy Rooms, of course).
