Yes, I'm responsible for the velvet jacket. It is *peculiar* what Peter will wear. I once bought him a beautiful black shirt with a VERY DISCREET sparkly stripe running through it which I KNEW he would throw on the floor and rush out of the room to escape from but it was so PRETTY . . . and he LOVES it. Has worn it half to death. I guess enough years with me starts to erode even male sartorial conservatism eventually.
That sounds like a great shirt. I suspect my husband would have fled, although since he's never been exposed to such a garment it's hard to be sure, but his big issue is that he hates to dress up, period. That becomes HATES TO DRESS UP if it involves a necktie or (apologies to Jodi and company) socks. "The point of books is to have way too many but to always feel you never have enough . . .
