The sales started yesterday. That statement gives away that this is not 'somewhere in England'. Nevertheless, in the interests of the globalised economy Angels went forth to consume. And did consume.
Consumed a cashmere (80% ,the rest is magic ingredient to make the cloth hang right, not attract dirt, keep its shape when wet etc, that the textile industry can do so well now with all the investment in manufacturing industry and research) winter coat. It is cut precisely as is a man's coat for wearing in town. Not fitted exactly but skimming the shape of the ideal human form. The sleeves flare imperceptibly to reach past the wrists but stop before the knuckles. It reaches just below the knee. The androgenous overcoat to die for. Yet it buttons the right way.
"We have only this one, " the assistant warned a hopeful Angel, "This was the model". Now, having saved all that money, there is lots over for gloves and a suitably severe scarf.
See, a a helpful attitude, onside, one of us. All that's needed to save England is fill the shops with things any sane person will want to buy. Which is only a decade or so of investment in research, manufacturing, design, and supporting systems, away.
