Ahhh - couldn't take the pressure this morning, and wore the jacket with jeans and a french blue shirt. The day started out grey and overcast, but it's now 18 centigrade and clammy. The suit will stay on the hanger until October, I'm afraid. And thanks, RJman; you support my own theory. It seems that Scabal has been at the same address for the last thirty years, so it's not inconceivable that they've made their rooms available for measurings and fittings for provincial tailors.
