LETTER : Dandy trick

From Mr John Shepherd

Sir: I read that Charles I wore the first waistcoat on 15 October, 1666 ("This is the week that was," 9 October). I hope he was not trying to model headwear too, as he was beheaded some 17 years before.

Yours faithfully,

John Shepherd

Deanscales, Cumbria
