    Did you know?

    You know those jackets we wear to the office called 'blazers'? Ever wondered why they're called that? The term comes from the Lady Margaret Boat Club back in the 19th century, who donned the fashionable jackets in a blazing red colour, hence the name. The name used to only denote that specific bright red type, but now can be used to describe a short smart jacket of any colour, usually worn in a formal setting.
