Suddenly, out of nowhere, my tailor handed me a dark blue velvet jacket. It fitted perfectly, or will if I loose 2 kg. But it is eminently useable already. My tailor got it as a gift from a MTM shop whose customer had not collected it, and it did not fit him. So he offered it to me, a very good customer, I think, and I gladly accepted! This is not an item I have owned before, and I do not think my social life have included many with these kind of jackets. My first inclination is to match it with a white shirt, a nice tie and charcoal trousers, but when to use it? And I would be grateful for suggestions for what to wear it with.
