Buying a good coat

by tim bradford on March 26, 2008

For years I’ve been meaning to buy myself a good coat. This year I had a decent budget and went up the west end, but with no success. On my way home, walking along Holloway Road, I went into that mad little second hand clothes shop near the college and picked up what looks like a mint condition tweedy overcoat that used to belong to Jacques Chirac, made by some posh tailor in Paris. It only cost £20 and now I am hooked. I’ve a feeling that this same shop has some of Francois Mitterand’s old shirts, a George Pompideu suit and a very tiny 1998 era Manchester United shirt that I’m convinced must have been worn by Nicolas Sarkozy.

I have got one recommendation for your webpage. It looks like there are a couple of cascading stylesheet troubles when opening a selection of web pages in google chrome as well as opera. It is working okay in internet explorer. Perhaps you can double check that.

Second, I also remember my experience in 2001 flying from OAK to SAT. I got on Travelocity at the suggestion of my dad, and found the best prices and times on America West. Not having ever bought my own airline tickets before at the time, and not yet knowing to check Southwest, I bought the tickets despite never having heard of America West before, but I easily learned from the listing that they were flying Boeing 737s (if it aint Boeing, I aint going unless the price difference is more than about $20) and were offering the best price for my route.
