occasions. The furs used are fox
"Double-breasted coats are very
in," said an Ann Arbor merchant,
describing what she thought to be
one of the most important changes
of the season. "That's one thing
you'll see everyplace."
Another popular addition to the
coat is the belt.
Suede cloth jackets are more
fashionable than ever this year,
especially with matching suede
slacks. Suede is also used for col-
lars on coats although - the trend
is away from the suede coat itself.
Coats have been lengthened to
reach the middle of the leg.
Sleeves are slightly longer too.
The newest coat fabrics are
long-haired fleecy fabrics of mo-
hair, tweeds, and herringbones.
These new fabrics are accentuated
by new colors. Plaids, stripes and
coats of muted colors and of more
than one color seem to be catch-
ing on very well.
Held over from last year is the
cape or poncho. One very stylish
example modeled recently was a
cape of soft blue mohair with a
dark blue plaid lining in the hood.
All in all the season is one of
novelty and beauty with an em-
phasis on femininity.

Women's hat trends this fall are
pointing in two distinct directions,
sporty hats and fabric hats made
to look like furs.
One famous New York designer
suggested that each woman should
own at least five new hats each
season. In his list he includes:
one for country weekends; one for
a sut; one for cocktails; and one
Colorful styles are also stressed
by this designer.bInstead of the
shock produced by "weird coif-
fures," he believes hats should be
as fashion complements.
But the styles of all the design-
ers are as varied as the other
fashions this season. Hats for
town are as sporty and slouchy
as "tweeds, sturdy boots and off-
For the city fashions, simple,
high-crowned hats are very much
in style. A bow band or facing of
suede is often added to these
furry felt hats.
On the Garbo-type brimmed
felts a chin tie is used to hold
down one side.
The bowler, which has been the
style in France, is now beginning
to become popular in this country.
The bowler, known in France as
the "melon" because of its shape,
has been selling at an astounding
rate of 25,000 each month.

The "genuine bleeding madras"

the only kind worth buying.
