Half of a double bill with "The Monkey's Paw".

Love is a luxury which very poor people can afford, and "The Bespoke Overcoat" is a story of this love. It is not a love which conquers all. Fender does not get enough food, or a tailor-made overcoat, in this life. Nor does he find satisfaction, except in so far as he is able to accept with humour and humility the deprivations forced upon him. It is because this humour and humility is shared with his friend that Fender, in spite of everything, would prefer to go on living. There is no indication of time past or present because a twinge of conscience lasts a moment or a lifetime.
