A VERY BORED Liz Smith mocked this up on a rainy day during her August hols on the Atlantic coast of France.

Fantastic, Andrew; fantastic! :)
Gosh, it makes me sound like a loser! In my defense, the boys were out at the movies, and I was tired from reading Henry James all day so I played around with the marvel of photoshop.
August is over though so its back to work for all of us :(
I was going to make a Thomson and Thompson joke, but what’s another variant spelling of Cusack?
Where are your plus fours?
Originally it was Cussac (or de Cussac, to be precise). It was then anglicized to de Cusack and gaelicized to de Cíosóg, later sometimes MacIosog.
In its anglicized version, it has sometimes evolved into Cusick, so you could have Cusack & Cusick to parallel Dupond et Dupont (or “les Dupondt”, as they are conveniently rendered in French).
And I do have the exact outfit above, minus plus-fours. Brown cords will have to suffice.

Favourite French phrase «tempête dans un bénitier», storm in a teacup — literally ‘storm in a holy water stoup’.
