"Foreigner" day

Another favourite moment (wonder if that shirt is still in his wardrobe?). From "Defender":
Banichi and Jago turned up, at the distribution of gifts, both fresh from showers and ready for dinner--they came to present Algini with their own gift, a very, very florid shirt, to laughter and applause from the servants, because Algini had a penchant for his old black uniform tees, in his rare moments off-duty. Algini accepted it in good grace, shed his uniform jacket and put on the shirt over the black tee to general laughter.
The door beeped. Algini shed the gift quickly.
"What?" Banichi said. "Not wear it for Jase-ji?"
Algini said not a word, only put on his jacket and looked quite proper before junior staff could open the door.
