Black and Black

One day when I was in my late 30s, my aunt, who had been in the fashion industry, greeted me on my arrival for a visit by casting a quick eye over what I was wearing and saying, “Good work, Mary. Matching your blacks is very difficult.”

I looked down at my black twill trousers and my black jersey cardigan, and I saw exactly what she meant.

I had done it accidentally that day, and I have never since been able to match my blacks.
