grandfather's coat

When I cleared the old house of my late grandparents' nearly 2 years ago I found & threw away many old clothes. But I've kept my grandfather's old black Inverness coat. It didn't seem to be worn-out and I wanted to wear it though it might look quite old-style. Inverness was popular especialy in the early 20th century in Japan because people could wear it on Japanese kimono. My grandfather was a tall man so his coat is a bit long for me, but I took it to the cleaners.

Today I went out wearing it for the first time. I found it's heavier than the modern coat but warm enough, and seemed a bit unique but not strange (so I hope)  :)
This evening I went to the cnsert of classical music - they played some pieces of Viennese waltz, then Dvorak's symphony "From the New World" - it's one of my favorite symphony. I enjoyed it very much!
