Blog | By Barry Cryer | By Barry Cryer | Apr 15, 2024

A young man went into a tailor's and asked for a Beatles Jacket.

'What’s that?' asked the old tailor, taking out a notebook.

'No lapels.'

'No lapels,' wrote down the tailor.

'No buttons.'

'No buttons.'

'No buttonholes.'

'No buttonholes.'

'No vent in the back.'

'No vent.'

'How much will that be?' asked the young man.

'I don’t know,' said the tailor, 'with all those extras.'
