Regular readers of my blog will recall the article and following comments regarding the colour of the piped blazer worn by Number 6, and how the discussion was resolved. Well as a matter of fact the same discussion could concern the colour of the bowler hat as worn by the Butler. Its looks black on the screen, and yet when Morag and I were watching ‘Checkmate’ one evening last week, I observed that there is a distinct brownness about it! A brown bowler to match the inside lining of the cape which the Butler wears inside out. The bright colourful stripes being far too garish, not sober enough, for a man in his position!
Be seeing you
