The weather.

Deckchair, ice lolly, factor 20.

The Fat Lady in Franny and Zooey.

Lowdown

MacAuslan could be credited for supplying some of the glue behind Leo Burnett's international offering. However, don't expect him to shout about it. He's entirely modest and understated.

Most expensive purchase

Extortionate school fees that make the Zimbabwean inflation rate look meagre.

Why are you good at what you do?

Never knowingly underdressed.
