It understood that he had nothing to do will) Die cabinet officer's sudden tumble from tne sartorial hlghts. What's inore. he thinks It's all a horrible mistake. Acheson, he said firmly, Is obviously the best dressed man In public life and anyone who says he Isn't just doesn't know a Shetland tweed from a herringbone worsted. The secretary's tailor, a mild man named Albert Herman, is manager of Parnsworlh Reed Ltd. A firm which has been tailoring the Acheson v.ardrobc for year.s. Insult In Injury German's professional pride has been wounded deeply. The Custom Tailors Guild Inc. not only chose Oen. Dwlght. D. Eisenhower over Acheson (last year's winner) ax the "best dressed man in public life, but it went further—It rapped the secretary for "overdressing." "My gosli-" sputtered Herman, "the secretary has never selected a suit louder than a mild-tone plaid. Why. why—lie's very discriminating and such a gentleman, perfect, size 42." Derman paused and added: . "Of course, it may have been due i a suit he had made previously jy another tailor ..."

There's only one diplomat in t<r.ul who ^ives him any competition at all in sartorial elegance. she .said, ami she's not naming him for fear it may cause international repercussions, Mrs. Butler said the secretary dressed so conservatively yesterday that she can't remember what he wore. "That ought to take care of thai 'DVcrdressiiiK' 'crack," she said triumphantly. Acheson's chief aide, Lucius Battle, told u reporter he's sure the secretary doesn't know yet ahout being dethroned by General Elsen- hower. Acheson Is wading through his daily crises on the cold war front Just as If nothing has happened, Battle said, adding: "Maybe 1 should 'tell him, He didn't know he had been selected as the bcst-drcs.sed last year until six months after It happened."
