New Formula Sums Up '66 Shoes
Did you ever realize that it takes
a mathematical mind to buy a
pair of shoes? New concepts of
addition, new methods of design,
new application of fabrics, new
relationships of color, and new
shapes in geometry-all combine
to produce a new formula: the
shoes of 1966!
For example, take the old theory}
-the loafer. Add a tassel, a buck-
le, flaps, or some fringe and we
have a new concept-the 1966
loafer. Multiply the length of the
shoe's tongue, square the toe, and
add a silver buckle-the 1966 Pur-
itan loafer emerges.
Apply the new formula that
pants suits must be worn with
shoe boots of the same color. The
boots and pants suits are nega-
tive. The boots boots, three times
as high as the shoe boots, should
be worn with full length coats. Co-
ver the perimeter of the tall boots
with fur or corduroy or shiny vi-
nyl in the season's newest MOD
colors, and whites and blacks.
The new geometry in fashion]
brings new lines into. play. Make
use of the T-squared, cut-out rec-
tangles, and the new strapped over
shoes are formed. Combine leather
and suede, leather and corduroy,
or patent leather and suede prov-
ing that 3 textures equal 1 great
Multiply the height of the heel
and the more dressy stacked heels
result. Add a round toe, a deep pa-
tent shine in shades of woodsy
browns to winy reds to pale beiges,
and a silver buckle. The answer to
our problem is solved. This is the
perfect shoe to wear all day and
in the evening too.
Spiked heels are negative signs.
Divide the spiked heels in half be-
cause they're outdated. Create new
geometric shapes and cut-outs like
the daisy, add a satin finish and
quaint little bows plus the season's
newest dark shades. The answer is
the 1966 dressy shoe. And don't
forget'the basic sling back shoe
for your wardrobe either.
The new math times the new
ideas times the new colors equal
one great look in shoes for Fall
Vinyl - Easy-
Join in the fun and add vinyl
to your closet! One of the new-
est fabrics on the market, it was
first introduced into the high fa-
shion world by the French. Today

There are three types of vinyl
on the market-the clear, the opa.-
que with the knit backing, and
the vinyl coated fabric. They are
all easy to work with and as a
rule, will not crack unless heat
has been applied to them. Vinyl
cannot be ironed either!
Vinyl represents the MOD look.
It comes in bright, bold, dashing
yellows ,whites, blacks, reds,
blues, and greens. Raincoats with
matching boots, umbrellas, and
purses are the biggest rage. Vinyl
skirts have invaded the market
more recently along with vinyl
jackets, slacks, and bathing suits.
Small accessories such as scarfs
and helmet hats are creating a

While styles change faster than
the eye can see and wardrobes
have to bereplenished every sea-
son to keep in line with the new-
est trends, there is one item in
the attire of every U. of M. student
that will never change. This is, of
course, the sweatshirt.
Classic in its simplicity, the
sweatshirt may be worn at almost
all informal occasions. They will
be fouiid in a variety of colors
ranging from the traditional, se-
date navy blues to the bright reds
and oranges.of some of the newer
models. Emblazoned across the
front of most sweatshirts profound!
messages such as "Michigan," "I
Love Snoopy" or "007" can be
found. Containing both comfort
and a message, sweatshirts will
never be out of style.
