Wearing thin

 

Sir, – If you go into town and look around you carefully, you will observe that hardly any male (at least under 60) is wearing a full-length overcoat, even in the dead of winter.

Could this phenomenon be associated with climate change, or could it be the often brain-numbing influence of fashion? – Yours, etc,
