    I Was Reading This Book....

    The book thread disappeared when its owner left the site so  thought I'd start another. Haven't read any Len Deighton for a while so started again on his spy trilogy. First one is Berlin Game. Terrific, I like it better than John Le Carre.

    "Yeah, it was usually used to describe short, boxy Italian-style jackets, two very short vents. It was more a 50's term, went with winklepickers and tapered trousers - the fashion between Teddy Boy and Mod, I suppose."
