Dandy & Dapper

Help! I tore my new jacket at the races on a generally disastrous day out. It was the first time I'd worn the suit, for which I just forked out a small fortune at Brioni.

Dark days are over as khaki makes a comeback

Those who like to don black may be disappointed to hear that their favourite colour has been usurped from its top spot. Fashion has found a new black in the very utilitarian shade of khaki in all its many hues and permutations. That is, at least until this season is over.

It's hot, it's stuffy and it costs a lot to wash. That's how traffic police officers are describing a jacket that is meant to offer them more protection. Not exactly a 'warm' welcome, especially during the summer heat.
