Social Math — UK

Giles and Trevor depart the suite of rooms they share in University College at 4:03 p.m. destined for their 5-o’clock rendezvous for high tea with Felicity and Nigella 30 kilometres thence. Giles’s vintage Morgan will average 44.2 kilometres per hour past the meadows and Gothic spires at which they will gaze with languid indifference.

Question: Estimate the cost of the bespoke Savile Row blazer that Giles is wearing. Express your guess first in euros, then in real money. Hint: Do not fail to valorise duly the garment’s double-vent-and-breasted design, handsewn stitching, and cathay silk lining, which is… well… rather fine indeed.

About JMN

I live in Texas and devote much of my time to easel painting on an amateur basis. I stream a lot of music, mostly jazz, throughout the day, and watch Netflix and Prime Video for entertainment. I like to read and memorize poetry.
