Imported'Poor Boy' MakesODebut .t... 'i
In Time for Winter's Chills

A "Poor Boy" is, first, a woman's
sweater, and second, relatively
expensive. The average price of a
well-made Poor Boy runs between
$10 and $30. All this, howevei', is
not the paradox that it would
seem. For the design of the pull-

Italian Flea Market. European
visitors found a short-sleeved
sweater, made of a heavy string

the open peasant marketplace. At
this low expense, the sweaters

Although few coeds will be
frolicking the winter through in
ermine wraps, the luxury of a
good fur will be kept up in minia-
ture. Many collegiate coat manu-
facturers have displayed a winter
line of fur-lined and fur-en-
hanced wools. Moreover, the syn-
thetic mimicks and non-mimicks
are appearing in a dizzying
variety.
Fox, in a polite salt-and-pepper,
wraps the inside and spills over

the margin of many new designs.
Or, for those who enjoy the same
look, wth a little less luxury and
expense, there is the front panel
trim:of the same warm fur. Rab-
bit, raccoon, and squirrel do the
same lovely things, for a wide
array -of inexpensive fur fun.
Along with the good imitation,
the obviously fake fur has come
into its own as a piece of warmth
and whimsey.
