Ditto on interest in a 'today' version. It would be difficult to parody something that would be so inherently funny.
I was interested to see under the 'VIP in town" a recommended hat described as 'semi-Homburg'. A pic, anyone?
Trying for 'Sigmund Freud' but ended with 'Willie Nelson', instead.
I am appalled by the informality of the chart! It must have been drawn by an American!
Sorry, but I got tempted
Well, to be honest for 1953 a "VIP in town" category and suggesting that the best you can do for daytime is a dark grey suit is almost appalling. The British First Lord of the Treasury (aka as PM) still wore frock coat and top hat if the occasion demanded formality.
Aside from that a nice chart.
