Men's Suits
Lighten Up
For Spring
By RICHARD MERCER
Spring suits this year will be
light. This breakaway from black,
navy and charcoal will be accom-
plished by a greater reliance on
light to medium grays, in solids,
especially sharkskins, and in pat-
terned effects.
Glen plaids will remain popular
while seersucker will climb to the
ranks of popularity in all fields of
fashion, suits included.
Three Buttons
Three button suit coats will re-
main in command in this field
with two button suits catching up,
and the one button concept also
growing in popularity.
Along with the new develop-
ments in suit coats will come
unique treatments of lapels.
Notch-shawl lapels will mark a
departure from the sharp lapel
lines of the past.
For the forward looking Beau
Brummel, this spring will afford
rounded-front shorter-length jack-
ets with half-inch stitching, and,
get this, some shoulder padding
and waist padding in addition to
narrow flaps for the slightly angl-
ed pockets. P s
Pleatless
Slim looking and pleatless pants
will remain the vogue in suit
fashions below the waist. Both ex-
tension waistbands and side tabs
along with traditional belt loops
and vertical side pockets will be
seen on this year's spring and
summer suits.
Spring and summer suits this
year will be made of bantamweight
wool tropicals, gabardines, Dacron
mixtures and polyester-worsteds.

SPORTS WEAR--Whether lounging against street lights or being
engaged in other pastimes, the fashionable young man this spring
will sport sports wear like that pictured above. Seersucker as
pictured on the right will make advances on the traditional
dacron-cotton combinations pictured in the middle and on the
left.
Patterned Sport Coats
Parade Vertical Look
Bv LATRENCE KIRSHBAUM I

By THOMAS DRAPER,
EDWARD HERSTEIN,
and ANDREW ORLIN
Brighter and bolder shirt pat-
terns will challenge the imagina-
tion of collegiates this spring.
Tab and button down collars
continue to share dress shirt pop-
ularity, but the patterns are get-
ting bigger and the colors bright-
er.
Replacing the standard white
and solid colored shirts are pat-
terned shirts sporting yellow, blue,
or gold stripes and checks. The
width of the stripes is expanding
to three-eights and one-half inch.
Vertical Stripes
In sport shorts this spring, the
patterns are primarily verticle
stripes rather than last fall's
plaids. The backgrounds are be-
coming lighter and the patterns
bolder.
The shape of both dress and
sport shirts are changing to a
more tapered form. No longer will
there be wind-catching bulges of
cloth above each hip.
Local retailers say the tapered
look is here to stay and parallels
the shrinking waistline of the hu-
man tor o.
Knit shirts will retain their pop-
ularity on campus, both for their
neat appearance and that male
saving characteristic, "No Ironing
Necessary."
Pants are again this year among
the most popular items in men's
wear.
Besides being a virtual neces-
sity, new styles have been bring-
ing men in droves to trade them
for pants.
Among the most popular of the
new spring wear are white levi's.
Offspring of the traditional blue
levi's, they are exactly what their
name implies and have been sell-
ing like hotcakes for leisure wear.
Tapered Trousers
Continental style trousers-tap-
ered with no belt loops or cuffs-
are capturing about 50 per cent
of the market in casual wear.
Cottons and cottons with syn-
thetics are the most prevalent ma-
terials. They are machine wash-
able and are generally favored in
neutral colors-charcoals, blacks
and greys.

strolling there will be no surpass-
ing the new vertical look.
But color and pattern are only
half the glory. These coats are
light as they are bright, as wash
and wearable as they are stare-
able. The material is puckered
seersucker, a light linen fabric
aired together in a crepe weave.
Pectoral Precision
These coats are designed to
pectoral precision for the natural
look. The shoulder slopes unpad-
ded down a medium lapel to the
front that really confronts: three
boldly-stated, white-plated but-
tons flanked by straight-flapped
pockets.
The body rhythm just oozes
through expressionless, untapered
waist and curves around back to
to the center-vented tail pipe.
The real hunk of man will
match his seersucker to light pas-
tel slacks (white or blue) and
navy, black or maroon club ties.
If he knows he's cool, the choice
for ties will range into broad
stripes of subdued blues.
Range, Rage
Subtlety and novelty prevail in
the new line of checked dacron
and cotton sport coats. The colors
range and rage into sexton plaids
or subdue into more solid beigey
reds, tans, light blues and greens.
Here too the material is cool as
in cloth. The linen weave pro-
vides plently of breathing and
wreathing room. And wrinkles
cease in front of the wash and
wear treatment.
These coats are engraved in ivy
styling. Like brother seersucker,
the natural shoulder and waist are
set off by the classic three-button
facade announcing medium lapels.
Club, Rep
There's only one way to be tied
down in these toppers: hushed ties,
club or rep.
Summertime and the living is
breezy. That's why a smart invest-
ment is the light yet substantial
dacron and wool sport coats. The
wearing season for this apparel
unparalleled is April to October.
The coats adopt to weather like
a thermometer.
These jackets stay calm color-
wise in soothing navys, light-
blues or grays. Again the emphasis
lies in the naturally tailored look:
the subtle shoulder, moderate cut-
away lapel, straight flap pockets.
So spring into the swing-the
bright vertical swing-of things.

Regular levi's and khakis are
also still high on the popularity
charts, of course, while cordu-
roys are only popular for winter
wear.
In dress clothes, again neutral
colors predominate. Grays, olives,
and browns in wool worsted and
wool-dacron combinations are
most popular.
Cuts tend toward the long, cas-
ual look-pleatless front, medium
width legs just long enough to
touch the top of the shoe.
Plaids and very subdued pat-
terns are by far the most predom-
inant in all fabrics, and a new
nylon zipper is beginning to make
an appearance in all lines.
The horizontal stripe will accent
this year's style in belts.
Elastic Belts
Elastic belts, which allow the
wearer to gain or lose weight with-
out having to buy a new one, will
again be very popular. The colors
will tend toward the lighter shades
with the stripe setting off the
pastels.
The classic leather belt will be
displayed in its usually prominent
position. As one store manager
noted, "We will always have them,
always sell them, and they will
never change." With minor shifts
in style, leather belts are the
same from year to year.
However, one thing which has
changed this year is the size of
belt buckles. Both in elastic and
in leather belts, there is a trend
toward larger buckles. They are
not becoming ornate with raised
designs but they are becoming
"DIK. massive and masculine"
nieces of metal.
Desert Boot
GaiJns Appeal
By STEVEN HALLER
According to one Ann Arbor
merchant, the most singular style
trend in men's shoes this spring
is a rapidly increasing interest
in that Foreign Legion mainstay,
the "desert boot."
This is a light-weight, sand-
colored shoe made of reversed
leather which looks like suede.
Desert boots come in ankle-high
or oxford styles, lined or unlined;
both have two-hole ties to hold
them firmly on the feet of any
Ann Arbor "Legionnaire."
There is no indication of a. re-
turn to the former trend of fancy
black-and-white or brown-and-
white shoes this season. The most
popular shoe for dress-up occasions
will be the narrow-toed light-
weight black oxford, for that
"Continental" flair.
Penny Loafer
The most popular type of .shoe
for everyday use continues to be
the loafer, of which several kinds
are available. One type which is
making a comeback is the "penny
loafer," so called because of its
use in a fad which requires that
a coin be inserted in a special strap
on the front of the shoe.
No particular reason for such a
fad has yet been made public,
except merely to chalk it up to the
unorthodoxies of the average shoe-
oriented mind.
Hush-puppies are still popular,
too. These brushed pigskin shoes
tare made in several styles. They
are particularly popular as golf
shoes because they are light-
weight, water-repellent and com-
fortable.
