Dandy & Dapper

I had jacket envy on my last business trip. The man across the aisle had a fantastic travel jacket (like a blazer, not anorak) and kept all his stuff in secret pockets. It didn't wrinkle even though he didn't ask the stewardess to hang it up. Where can I get such a thing?

Let's keep uniforms

I am writing in response to the article 'Uniform rule is wearing thin' (Young Post, March 3). I don't agree that students should not wear school uniforms.
