These were a nasty crew. Mad dogs, thieves and killers. And this was going to be the biggest heist in decades. You needed an in. What with your flamboyant (well dressed) life you’d mounted up debts and owed even worse people than these murderers. But, to get a spot in the crew you had to make a good first impression. If you didn’t, they’d kill you on the spot, and if not them, your creditors would get you in the end, in a really sadistic, gruesome manner for sure. You had one last roll of the dice. Luckily for you, you'd heard the leader of the crew was into his clothes and fabrics, and you’d recently spotted (on instagram maybe... you can’t remember) a beautiful, undyed wool that would make a beautiful tweed jacket. Diamonds running throughout the weave. The symbolism could surely not be lost on the murdering bossman, what it being a diamond heist! Also the meet being in 8 weeks was perfect timing to have yours custom made by your favourite tailors, Beggars Run.
In your rotund gut you felt your luck was about to change.
Cut to a year later, you’re back in debt. But you have your skin. Not the sports coat though, he took that from you and had it destroyed. He had his own made up by Beggars Run, (and had a really great experience throughout the entire process). Selfishly he didn’t want anyone else owning a thing of such beauty. You foresaw this, of course, and had two made up - Wearing it around your apartment would have to be good enough.
