Barry Cryer's favourite tailor joke

Blog | By Barry Cryer | Jun 01, 2021

A young man went into a tailor's and asked for a Beatle Jacket.

'What’s that?' asked the old tailor, taking out a notebook.

'No lapels.'

'No lapels,' wrote down the tailor.

'No buttons.'

'No buttons.'

'No buttonholes.'

'No buttonholes.'

'No vent in the back.'

'No vent.'

'How much will that be?' asked the young man.

'I don’t know,' said the tailor, 'with all those extras.'
