Rotten Row Blazer
I wore this blazer when I arrived at Brown’s. My riding boots, however, had been sent before me.
No time for jet lag or tepid cultural immersion, I pick up my heels and leave for Hyde Park.
Thirty minutes later, I’m cantering down the sandy bridleway of Rotten Row (corruption of Route du Roi). The very place where a young Prince Edward (VII) first observed Lillie Langtry riding sidesaddle.
The Serpentine still echoes with Edwardian splendor.
Afterwards, I wear my blazer to lunch at the St. James Club, then again for dinner at the Cheshire Cheese.
I do remember to take it off for bed.
