Wish List: The Inspector Trench

My son is obsessed with the 1960s cartoon, The Inspector, and has a sometimes humorous, sometimes embarrassing habit of going into ‘inspector mode’ when meeting people for the first time. He pulls out his (imaginary) magnifying glass, starts reciting barely coherent bits of dialogue from the show (“Don’t say si, say oui” and “oh no, the blotch”) and then runs off, presumably in chase of a criminal.

My husband had the brilliant idea of letting him dress up as the Inspector for Halloween this year. Now all I have to do is find a trench coat and hat. After a bit of research, it looks like it might have to be a girl’s trench coat.

Oh, and as his guardian for the evening, I’ll need a trench coat too, a Burberry one. I don’t want to spoil the theme.
