Having not bought anything from Boden for a few years I finally bought a black Boden biker jacket, which I've been pleased with.

Until today.

I was leaving the station when two old boys wandered up to me. 'What time does the train museum open?' one of them asked me.

I said I was very sorry but I didn't know.

'Oh, we thought you worked for the railway,' one of them told me with a nod at the jacket.

haha, which colour was it?

It is black.

I thought I looked a bit like Ros in Spooks. [Self-delusionary icon]

That's funny! on the strength of a black jacket they thought you worked there?

Was it the name badge and the walkie talkie though/? really?

I have it in brown. Had considered the black. But I didn't have any neon green bibs to go with...........

Perhaps I shouldn't have worn my black, pinstriped trousers with it!

They were pretty ancient. Eyesight possibly not terribly sharp.
