Personality for it?
You mean like some sort of escapee from the 60s?
It certainly didn't look like a suit. And I think the comparison to mis-matched checks isn't quite right because the pattern, especially on the jacket, was almost invisible from any distance. The jacket was what Manton would call "functionally solid." You couldn't really tell it was corduroy unless you were within about six feet . . .
I'm wondering if there are any pictures of the Duke of Windsor dressed like this. Then I'll know
that it doesn't work.
