So that was thinking No 1. Then came thinking No 2, aided and abetted by one of my favourite British boutique brands, Press of Primrose Hill. Why not forget the jacket and just wear the waistcoat bit of the equation to give shape to one of this season’s ubiquitous and oh-so wearable soft blouses? Or layer under that colourful trouser suit, in a contrast neutral? Press has recently introduced an absolute beauty of craftsmanship, made by a traditional family tailoring firm in Italy that has worked for big boys such as Burberry and Gucci. It’s a double-breasted waistcoat, cut to sculpt in a way that would have impressed even Mountbatten, and available in black wool or velvet, in grey herringbone and in blush corduroy (from £299, pressprimrosehill.com). The quality is sublime. It’s a real investment buy.
