    That was funny! And the old guy had a decent suit on, too.

    Looks like that's Butler, and I think he's posted that very suit in this thread before.

    Wow, so great! I'm sure that's Butler's own bespoke suit and not from the wardrobe department. :)

    Holy sh_# Butler, that's a Brando-level performance rite there! have no clue what it's selling, burt you're a natural.


    For anyone interested, he's wearing a 'Gala' Cheviot from the Lovat mill, 16 oz AFAIK- G&H has used it for odd jackets.

    That is utterly fantastic, go Butler, top bloke indeed!! A timely repost to the tailor's article who made Butler's suit, together with a photo of the excellent garment in action: http://www.thesavilerowtailor.co.uk/2012/02/how-to-stand-out-in-a-crowd-2/

    Thanks guys - this is actually the first time I see this commercial which was shot months ago and shown on swedish TV. It is supposed to get people to use professional electricians to check on the wiring to avoid situations like this :) :bigstar:
