My son has been invited to an event which says 'formal dress'. I am happy to send him in ironed shirted and black chinos, but he would really like a velvet jacket, preferably green.

Does anybody know where I can find one?

Hmm. I used to buy my velvet Blazers from
Camden market but that was over 15 years ago!

There is even a green one, but for age 13 years.

I got my son (7) a black corduroy one from TK Maxx at Xmas, it was Ralph Lauren and very much a bargain.

also smart

Felicia I had the most beautiful velvet skirt from Camden market in the 90s!

Masterful, thank you! I had searched eBay but that didn't come up for me! I'm not very good at searching in general, to be honest, I never seem to put in the right terms!

We're not in London but I'm there for work at the end of this week so was prepared to go shopping for one - I was imagining some hellhole of a Little Lord Fauntleroy type place but eBay is far better.

Herecomes - we probably got them from the same stall! grin

Mine was purple. I loved it.
