Color Change
In Male Shoes
Shoes for the male college stu-
dent are generally stable in style.
The basic form of footwear at
the University is (to no surprise)
the loafer. Cordovan loafers are
as appealing as ever to the well-
dressed collegian. However, brown
styles are making a comeback, ac-
cording to the local merchants.
They report that a year ago they
couldn't sell brown ones "if they
had to," but now they are selling
quite well. The moccasins gener-
ally have handsewn fronts. The
plain tongue slip-ons are suitable,
but the "modified-penny" front is
still the overall favorite.
Turning to more formal wear,
another "returnee" is being worn
again. This is the wingtip model.
Selection of these shoes also in-
dicates a preference for the color
cordovan. Brogues in olive, black,
and dark brown are also being
frequently bought.
A new aspect for the classic
wingtip is corfam. This new ma-
terial for shoe uppers is man-
made. Its selling points are com-
fort and ease of care. Models us-
ing this synthetic are lighter and
flex with the foot. By resisting
scuffs and water, corfam shoes
are cleaned and shined simply by
wiping with a soft cloth.
With the advent of more win-
try weather, boots are a final ca-
tegory of a Michigan student's
footwear. Snow and rain are hard
on any shoe. Therefore, "floaters"
featuring a crepe sole and suede
uppers can withstand most any
walking hazard.

IT APPEARS THAT men's footwear has not been changing much over the years. Here we see our
model admiring the age old student favorite, the classic brown or cordovan "Weejun." New ino-
vations in the field of footwear have been centered mostly upon boots.

IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT NO fashionable man's wardrobe can be complete without a wide selection of headgear. For the stylish
discotheque or casual wear around campus, "mod" caps are being seen in a great variety of colors and materials. Large, round golf style
caps in bold check patterns are also quite popular these days.

WILD'S has


Styles Rely on Past


As many historians have noted,
there is something to be said for
the hypothesis that certain trends
in world events tend to be re-
peated over the years. It seems
that many fashion designers have
used this principle in preparing
many of the new fashions. Much
of the so-called "mod" fashion
is, in reality, based upon styles
from another era.
Naturally enough the use of '
"old-fashioned" styles has spread
into both the world of men's and
women's fashions. One of the
most popular periods which mo-
dern fashion designers have
drawn from is the Twenties and
Thirties. The influence of this
period is being seen in many of
the dresses and suits being worn
by stylish women of today.
Perhaps the most outstanding
example of this trend today is the
reintroduction of the double-
breasted suit. Where previously
this type of clothing could only be
seen on late night movies, it is
being found increasingly on fa-
shionable businessmen as well as
on the college campus. Walk into
any clothing store on campus and
you will find the double breasted
suit being displayed more and
more prominently. It seems that
the look of the Twenties and
Thirties is coming back to the
It is not quite the same as the
look of that period. The new dou-
ble-breasted suits are not as bulky

and have narrower lapels and
sleeker lines, but the fact that the
look of the Twenties is there can-
not be denied. The shoulders are
natural as opposed to the padded
look of yesteryear. The use of
sidevents has increased the com-
fort and practicality of the mo-
del. The double-breasted suit can
be found in a variety of conser-
vative, dark woolen fabrics in mo-
dels ranging from two-button to
Styles like history are repeating
themselves. The double-breasted
suit, once thought to be as "out"
as the Edsel, is now coming back
in profusion. Even the accessories
that go with it sch as the wide
patterned ties and flowery hand-
kerchiefs, date back to the Twen-
ties and Thirties. Fashion is a
constantly building process like 1
history, but we can see that it too
must rely on the past.-
