It’s just like being back at school for the Prisoner. As Captain of the school boxing team at Patrick McGoohan‘s old school of Ratcliffe College he would have worn a piped blazer. In fact the one-time archivist at the school joked “I think he wore his old Ratcliffe blazer in the series.” Mind you that’s not a Ratcliffe straw boater he’s wearing outside the hospital, it has a simple black band. The Prisoner does wear another boater in ‘Once Upon A Time,’ which has a more elaborate band with vertical stripes. It was once questioned if that boater was a Ratcliffe straw boater. But no-one could be sure, and even if it is, it cannot be proven.
Be seeing you
