Bespoke

by Jonathan Hill
Originally published by BookHippo.uk on 28/02/2018

The minister rarely bought anything that wasn’t tailor-made. This fussiness extended beyond clothing. The local deli put aside special produce, not to be sold to anyone else under any circumstances. Even his pomade was a unique commission, supplied by a Mayfair vendor.

But the people had had enough, not just of the minister but the entire government. It was time to make a stand. One day, as he was being fitted for a suit, the measurements were carefully noted, sealed in an envelope and sent to the local coffin-maker.

A bespoke coffin. For next week he’d be dead.
