    As a result, so much simpler for me to blame Fumbelina, who thinks syntax is just an unfair charge for improper behaviour....
    If ) is a bracket and ] is a parenthesis, what is } called?

    I can't forget my favorite author of my one of my favorite TV shows. I loved it when he was the second judge in "The Final Fade Out" after all those episodes [[albeit uncredited).

    Westgrand, am I correct in assuming he designed for for the TV Show "The Avengers" back in the 60's?

    Yes Moe, he did.

    Although Hardy Amies is best known to the British public as designer for HM Queen Elizabeth II, he did design 'The Avenger' leisure jacket for Patrick Macnee as John Steed, in Series 3..and I think it was also available to the general public from Hepworths.

    Really? The fashion also mentioned quite a bit was Mrs. Peel's one piece "cat suit" [or whatever you wish to call it]. She always had that on when she was ready to kick someone's behind!!! Loved her outfits!!

    R&B,
    Please be advised that while I am, indeed, on location there's not much I nor any of my crew can do due to the increase in the Covid Delta rate. As Westgrand says "get in line & while you're waiting make some sandwiches."

    Moe, I can't immediately locate the designer/maker of Emma Peel's catsuit, but....

    Diana Rigg disliked wearing it.....

    And it was made in real leather only in the first series. From there on, it was made in faux leather, which made the rapid action sequences much easier for Diana Rigg to perform.
