The Guv’nor on seeing one of his pet hates. A tweed suit with a velvet collar.
He fumed, the only velvet collars that are allowed are on some riding jackets, city and evening overcoats, teddy- boy drape coats and sometimes but not very often covert coats. Everything else is out.
You want to look like a doorman or a “wannabe” have a velvet collar on your suit.
