cy Cummerbunds Di
ditional Ivy Leaguer
By JOHN ROBERTS
The Ivy League tuxedo continues
to be the most popular fashion in
men's formal wear.
This design is characterized by
Its natural shoulder, straight cut
coat with shawl collar, and
trousers cut in a mode so casual
that they may almost be worn as
Cumberbunds, which in recent!
seasons have become practicall% a
must for formal events, add a
spicing of color to the outfit
Rounding out the ensemble are
pleated shirts, smoke grey or black
jewelry, and black shoes.
Shoes exhibit _a wide variety,
of designs, quite different from
the days when the navy black,
plain-toe type was the only shoe
that could be properly worn at a
formal event. Now, continental
loafers, two-eyed continentals, or
virtually any other design con-
sistent with good taste, is accept-
Since the war tails have virtually
disappeared from the American
campus, A common comment
heard from clothiers was that
college students today are less
concerned with smart appearance
than with wearing currently popu-
lar fashions, however atrocious.
Students Note Value
Of Good Appearance
Brighten Campus on Rainy Days
By MICHAEL HARRAH
The annual meeting of the na-
tion's top high school and college
business students took time out
recently to note the intrinsic value
of good appearance to a young
man crossing over from the world
of textbooks to the world of mar-
The convention met in Chicago
under the auspices of the Future
Business Leaders of America,
where they adopted a 10-point
code of ethics for business prac-
Realizing the importance of a
good appearance, one point in the
code reads: "I will dress and act
in a manner that will bring re-
spect to me and my employer."
The Future Business Leaders of
America have 2,200 chapters and
54,000 student members across the
nation. Virtually all of them have
noted that personal and classroom
instruction on groper attire and
good grdoming for business pay
off in the long run.
Recently, the FBLA has high-
lighted the importance of appear-
ance in the world of business
through a "dress right" student
Outgoing FBLA President Roy
S. Peters, Jr. of Southwest Okla-
homa State College at Weather-
ford said, "Many students forget
the importance of appearance in
getting and keeping a job. Per-
sonnel managers have no time to
waste, and, if you don't make a
good impression on them the first
time you seldom get a second
"But, that doesn't mean you can
afford to relax once you start
working. Your employer, your fel-
low employes, and the public first
know the 90 per cent of you made
up of your, apparel.'
HE'S STEPPING OUT-in a classic black tuxedo with satin
shawl lapels. The coat is also of dressy black, styled in the tradi-
tional Chesterfield cut, with velvet collar. A burgundy cumberbund
and tie, and pleated shirt complete the dress wardrobe.
Clothiers Say Worsteds Still Popular
Slim lines are reflected in the
current fall trend in men's slacks.
Both in suit trousers and separate
slacks, the former baggy 'appear-
ance is slowly disappearing,
While the newest slacks defin-
itely aren't skin tight and don't'
give the lean, gaunt look they have
been furthercondensed at the
seat, knee, and cuff to "show off
the figure to better advantage."
Greater acceptance is coming for
the pleatless or plain front slacks
for that reason. The proportion of
the single pleat is gaining while
double pleats are declining.
Self-supporting waistbands of
one sort or another are definitely
gaining on belts. In fact, a recent

an evening coat. The Chesterfield
coat, both in solids and muted

For winter weather, many rain-
coats are also lined in fur or
blanket lined plaid wools with
hoods of the same material. Es-
pecially practical for football
games are the reversible ponchos

Many plastic rainhats are offered

The versatile plaid is once again
the mainstay of fall and winter'
wardrobes. From casual ingenue to
sleek sophisticate, each finds a
plaid to echo the colorful world
around her. For the college girl on'
a budget, the plaid is especially
attractive because of its multicolor

All' the old favorites, skirts,
shorts; dresses, slacks, and jackets
are back in plaids for fall and

spotlight with wide, softly tex-
tured strokes of muted purples,
grays, browns, and greens, blended
in new furry materials.. At the
other extreme, brightly contrast-
ing reds, electric blues, blacks and
whites give dramatic flair to many
new skirts and dresses.
New innovations of style have
likewise adopted the plaid as a
basic pattern: ponchos to snuggle
under, skorts briskly flaring above
the knees, the new culottes, and, a

the selection of slacks in patterned
fabrics to go with the solid colors

circles as blazers. Also on the rise
are the pre-cuffed slacks which
can be taken home at once.
Patterned or plain, continental
or conservative classic, new slacks,
stride into fall with something

brash patterns, but more comfort-
