CAMPUS STORE:
Bagpiper: New Fashions
In Old Country Setting

By DAVID FRITSCH
Diversity runs rampant this
year in winter coats and jackets
for men. Stores in the campus
area are offering a somewhat be-
wildering collection of styles and
prices, with most of the empha-
sis on suede. Other styles, notably
toggle coats and corduroy, remain
popular, however. Here's how thej
situation shapes up on some of
the near-campus men's shops.
Redwood and Ross finds 32"
suede coats* with an orlon pile
lining very popular. Single-breast-
ed, these go for $70, double breas-
ted, for $85. Also a big seller is
the standard London Fog rain-
coat with a zip-out alpaca lining,
for $60.
Across the street Todd's fea-
tures an all wool outer shell three-
quarter length coat in a window-
pane plaid for $29.95. The same
coat in a cotton diagonal twill
goes for $24.95. Both have flat
slab pockets and acrylic linings.
Todd's also carries a popular ny-
lon windbreaker, with an acrylic

lining and slant pockets, for $17.-
98. This can also be obtained, on
a one-week special delivery order
basis, with MICHIGAN stitched
on the back.
At Tice's, the toggle coat, with
an all wool outer shell, orlon lin-
ing, and detachable hood still sells
well, from $35-$55. All nylon ski
jackets (generally in navy blue)
and suede jackets with pile linings
($35) also do well.
Lambs Wool Coats
Down the block at Camelet
Bros. a number of slightly more
unusual items are offered. Among
these are a reversed lamb coat
for $130, and reversible top coats
with a raincoat on one side and a
wool plaid ($125) or herringbone
tweed ($110) on the other. Cor-
duroy coats with a wool lining and
optional suede trim sell for $62.50
and $75, respectively, and a cotton
gabardine with an alpaca lining
sells for $100 even.
On State St., Van Boven finds
its poplin, corduroy, and wool
tweed three-cquarter length coats

SUEDE IS BIG NEWS for men this season. For a natural and
rugged look, try this shearling lined reversible-sheepskin, called
a Wild Suede. Shown at Saks Fifth Avenue, $125.

popular, with prices ranging from
$50-$75. Its suede coats have or-
lon pile linings and cost $135 and
$165, for single and double-breas-
ted, respectively.
The Checkmate also sells a good
deal of suede, but with a slight
difference. It deals in Heek suede,
imported from Holland, which
costs a good deal less than genu-
ine suede, and has the added ad-
vantage that it requires no special
care, and can be cleaned at local
drycleaners instead of having to
be sent to leather cleaning spec-
ialists. Checkmate's jackets and.
coats in this material sell for $35
and $39.95.
Ski Jackets
Saffell and Bush features three-
quarter length stadium coats of
wool, with a fur collar, in a num-
ber of patterns and colors, in-
cluding plain camel and a black
and white hound's tooth check.
Its bedford cord coats with an or-
lon pile lining for $50 and poplin
coats, especially in a new color
called "tawny brown" are also
sellers, along with belted ski jack-
ets of cotton and dacron in a var-
iety of colors, which run from $20-
$40.
Wagner's offers a full-length
suede with a zip-out lining for
$80, and a full-length coat of ny-
Ionized dacron and cotton poplin
for $52.50. It also sells toggle
coats with detachable hoods in
camel and other colors for $40,
and a window pane plaid all wool
coat with an alpaca lining for $60.
Middie Coats
Saks Fifth Avenue gets into the
act with a reverse sheepskin
shearling for $125, regular suede
coats for $90, cotton and wide
wale corduroys with removable
lining and fixed hoods for $69.50
and $79.50, respectively. Toggle
coats here go for $59.50 in camel,
grey, navy or olive, navy blue
double-breasted middie coats for
$65. Its cotton dacron stadium
coats for $50 in natural and navy
colors come with a heavy duty
zipper and detachable hood, and
the ubiquitous suede jacket, (this
time with a cotton finish), for
$55.
As for top coats, they tend to
be very conservative this year,
mostly in herringbone tweed and
wool cheviot patterns, single or
double-breasted. Prices range from
$90-$100 at Saks Fifth Avenue,
$85-$185 at Van Boven.

ners and on counters.
The Bagpiper's sales clerks are
"countrified" college-aged misses
in bright orange starched smocks.
Gracing the smocks and scattered
throughout the shop are big
orange daisies, made of granny-
printed plastic.
Tearing around the shelves of
clothes at the Bagpiper is a
floppy black dog known as Alfred
the Poodle. He even has his own
plaid wool scarf to keep him well
dressed.
In setting and in clothing, tra-
dition is emphasized at the Bag-
piper. The clothes featured are in!
the conservative college style,
with a little more color and zip
than the lines stocked at some of
the other stores in Ann Arbor.
The clothes are basically from
one of three labels well establish-
ed with college women: Villager,
Lady Bug and Lanz. Everything is
supplied to suit a campus ward-
robe, and "camp" bright plaids

zanne, Davey's and Etienna Aig-
ner. The store supplements its al-
ready ample sweater and skirt
supply with clothes by Gordon
Ford, and there are a few items
carrying the Bagpiper's own label.
The only lingerie carried is a rack
of quilted granny-print robes and
matching nightgowns, by the
store's three favorite labels. Vil-
lager supplies "mini" gowns.
As to the prices, they are as
traditional as the clothes. The
quality of big labels, and a new
and classy showroom don't spell
economy.
The finishing touches of the
old-fashioned boutique setting in-
clude products of the South Caro-
lina Soap and Candle Makers Co.
including scented candle jars,
spray sachets and scented soaps
in the shape of pieces of fruit.
Also there are some "Gag" items
such as the "Snaggy Glass," a
hairy goblet with which to amaze
your friends and befuddle your
enemies.

Girls, Guys
Go to Sam's
By JAN MALINOWSKI
Almost anyone going to Sam's
Store on E.,Washington is going
to buy Levis because Sam's has
the largest selection in Ann Arbor,
according to salesman Don Pat-
terson.
Sam's caters to the University
student. Girls find the store an
especially good place to shop be-
cause they can find levis to fit.
Some girls shop at Sam's because
the salesmen are "cute". Patter-
son estimates that their levi busi-
ness is about 50 percent girls;
most of them buy boy's levis. The
girls say this is because they fit
more comfortably.
Sam's selection is large in both
size and variety. The basement is
filled with 5000 pairs of levis from
size 0 to 76. Besides blue jeans,
corduroy jeans, or good old-fash-
ioned white levis, the store is now
carrying a new canvas levi. Ac-
cording to Patterson, Sam's is the
only store "east of the Mississip-
pi" which carries the original but-
ton-fly levi manufactured in Am-
arillo, Texas.
Girls not only buy levis; they
buy CPO shirts, knapsacks, pea
coats, boots, almost anything else
Sam's sells. The demand for pea
coats was so big this year that
the store took orders.
Sam's used to be a store which
sold only workingmen's clothing,
but with the big levi craze which
started about ten years ago, the
store converted to fill the stu-
dent's needs.
