‘“It was Din! Din! You may talk o’ gin and beer, When you’re quartered safe out ‘ere, You’re a better man than I am, Gunga Din!”
It was my somewhat bombastic Irish musician friend singing his favorite poem over the din at the Atlantic Bar just off Savile Row. All I had asked him was to tell me about the jacket I was admiring since he walked in.
He said, “That’s what I was doing.”
To make a long poem short, Harrison got the jacket from a friend as a gift during their Bangladesh concert.
Who in turn got it from an American student, who nicked it from his great uncle, who got it from Cary Grant after they finished shooting Gunga Din.
“How I got it,” he said, “is another story.”
I ordered another round of Jameson’s. It is after all times like this that whiskey is distilled for.
The Kipling Blazer (No. 2594). We duplicated this
vintage British Military Blazer for you
in Portugal. In a tough but comfortable, cotton
canvas. Metal, silver oxide buttons (detachable
and held in place by split metal rings). Rounded and
pleated button-through flap pockets. Button-down
shoulder epaulette. Center back vent. Pieced
and folded cuffs. Wear casually with jeans.
Outstanding with dark gabardine slacks and
a tie. Gives a man authority and the kind of
handsomeness that belongs on a coin. Or
in a movie.
Men’s sizes: 38 through 48.
Color: British Khaki.
