No offence meant, but your username reminds me of the joke in the UK version of 'The Office', where they talk about death by 'mao mao'. Or I am going senile and thinking of something else?
No! It wasn't in 'The Office' but rather in the 'League of Gentlemen'

From Wikipedia:

The Mau Mau Uprising was an insurgency by Kenyan rebels against the British colonial administration that lasted from 1952 to 1960.

...........................

As a result of the events in Kenya, the verb "to mau mau"meaning "to menace through intimidating tactics; to intimidate, harass; to terrorize," entered English usage, especially in a political and/or racial context.

obviously, this mao is not mau by any strech of the imagination.


As for the jacket, it's from the same shop where I bought my "$300 dollar suit" seach the forum that topic.
