A man wore a coat for six months before finding a message hidden in the pocket.
Will Harte, a comedian from Reading, noticed one of the flaps had been tucked in.
On Twitter, he wrote: “Got a nice coat as a present from my grandma about six months ago. Been wearing it no problem.
“Noticed today one of the pockets on the front was tucked in. Enjoy the before and after.”
In the first image, the dark raincoat looks normal enough.
But in the second picture with the flap unfolded, you can see the words “immigration enforcement” on the pocket.
The uniform is likely to have belonged to a former immigration worker who gave the jacket to a charity shop or local market.
Will was able to see the funny side of the situation.
He asked his gran where she picked up the garment, but this didn’t seem to clear anything up.
The Twitter user added: “Her response to me asking where she got it from wasn’t reassuring. She ‘can’t remember’.”
Will’s tweet garnered more than 38,500 likes and hundreds of comments.
People were equally amused by the jacket mishap – and some even shared similar stories of their own.
A responder wrote: “Friend of mine, 6 foot 8, struggled to find a ski suit.
“Went to army surplus shop, bought khaki overalls with mysterious squiggles stencilled on.
“On a slope in Austria, an Israeli skiied up to him and said: ‘I think we were in the same tank on the Golan Heights, no?'”
And another laughed: “I know a bloke whose wife buys his shirts from the Barrows, Glasgow.
“He wore one with a tasteful logo on a business trip to Germany.
“A German colleague asked where he got it.
“‘Dunno. Wife buys my shirts. Why do you want to know?’
“‘Because that’s a German telephone company logo’.”
