President Bush Orders a Suit from Langholm

Cloth made on the looms of Reid & Taylor in Dumfries and Galloway has been selected by President George W Bush to be made into suits for "next season." According to the promotional literature from the company, their exclusive, soft cloth allows customers to "wrap themselves in a perfect frame of mind". The 163-year-old Langholm company says that "The president will probably feel so good about himself he'll be very relaxed." Not that the conservative president selected the most expensive cloth - just a plain, navy blue wool at a mere 65 a metre. When the president was told that the cloth he had selected was woven in Scotland he is reported to have said "even better."
