Smell of Rain

Inspector Barnaby:  This cloth, where'd it come from?

Tailor: Ah, that's a lovely 18 ounce tweed, hand woven in Scotland before the war.

Barnaby: I swear my father had a suit in this material.

Tailor: I wouldn't be surprised.

Barnaby: I can remember how it smelled when he'd been out in the rain.
