Cohen brothers
Main page / Bibliography / Who is who / Cohen brothers

The Cohen brothers Isadore, Lou, and Irving run a second-hand clothing establishment near Covent Garden (cf. the Moses Brothers in Ukridge's Accident Syndicate, and the real-life Moss Bros. of Covent Garden, mentioned in Service With a Smile). In The Magic Plus Fours (where the first brother's name is spelled Isidore) they sell Wallace Chesney a pair of prismatic Plus Fours allegedly made for Sandy McHoots. In Sam the Sudden they sell ready-made clothing and outfit Sam Shotter in a bold tweed suit. In The Ordeal of Osbert Mulliner they outfit Osbert Mulliner in secondhand traveling clothes. In Joy in the Morning they supply Bertie Wooster with a Sinbad costume. In Frozen Assets, they are called on to supply trousers for Biff Christopher.
