From green to red. Taken on the same day as my His Lordship green velvet jacket — and how unattainable such an intensity of sunlight now seems — here are some photos of a bright red velvet jacket. The velvet is softer than in the green one, as can be seen from the way the pocket hangs. And once again, the jacket is from an exotic location. Thailand this time: the label says "Ravi Sehgal Bangkok / Since 1976 / www.ravisehgal.com". As there's a web address, this must be recent, at least by the standards of vintage clothes.
Ravi Sehgal is still going, with a website at the
same address. Most
garments on the site are less colourful
than my jacket, though Ravi does display one rather
fetching pink suit. Click the thumbnail to view it in his Instagram account at full size:Wayback
