Still a perfect fit
“Having read the articles about longserving suits in the column recently,” says Robert Patterson of Strathkiness, St Andrews, “I wonder if I can add my story?
“Prior to 1978 I bought two safari sports shirts to take on my 1978 P and O Canberra cruise to the West Indies and Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.
“Both shirts were laundered on board and bear laundry number C10 my cabin number. Both remain a perfect fit. I will take them on my next 40-day Fred Olsen Balmoral Cruise to the West Indies in October this year. I am now 86 years of age.”
