Savile Row tailor Steven Hitchcock is showing a tweed car coat he recently made for a client.
According to the cloth's maker, Dashing Tweeds, the checks in the cloth's weave of wool worsted and reflective yarn reflect light, making the coat easy to see at night. London's double yellow-lines and red routes were chiselled up and matched to produce yarn shades that match the colors of the City.
It might not work for Bob Dylan in Mobile but it could be just the thing for Sir Paul McCartney to wear over his suit and sneakers in London.
Though I will say I have to admire the courage of the Dashing Tweed principal who permitted himself to be photographed wearing a purple checked jacket with matching knickers.
