‘From Red Guards to Bond villains’

I was recently interviewed by Clarissa Sebag-Montefiore for a BBC online article about the Mao suit (Zhong shan fu 中山服). The article has recently been published and you can read it here.

  1. Good stuff. I once found a Mao suit in TK Maxx in Wrexham, and thought that it would be just the thing for a dapper gentleman living (as I was at the time) on the Welsh borders. I tried it on, but unfortunately it just looked ridiculous.

    1. Amazing! I wonder how it ended up in Wrexham?!
