Coat of charms

A good time was had by all at a recent party hosted by Denton Wilde Sapte for its Gulf practice. Well, nearly all.

When Tulkinghorn reached the cloakroom of the swanky venue in Piccadilly, one worse-for-wear partner was having trouble reclaiming his coat. Always one to show concern for lawyers, Tulkinghorn naturally asked what the matter was. The reply? “They asked me if it was from Marks & Spencer. It’s not. It’s cashmere. It’s from Saville Row and it has a pair of very nice gloves inside.”
