Doesn't suit you, sir

The operators of Burberry's Twitter account made an embarrassing red carpet error at the BAFTAs; the company had presumable prior knowledge that Dev Patel, who eventually won Best Supporting Actor for "Lion", would be wearing a Burberry "custom made navy tuxedo" (dinner suit to you and me). Unfortunately they attached the caption to a picture of Riz Ahmed, there for the un-awarded "Rogue One".

It was a bad gaffe on more than one count: Ahmed's suit was grey mohair. A shame for former BBC money man John Smith, working out his notice as Burberry's COO, and still serving as chairman of BAFTAs Finance and Audit Committee.
