dras Cloth Key to Men's Sportswear

Men on the Michigan campus
-and on university campuses
across the country-are wearing
sports wear for more occasions.
And more and more of that
sports wear is this spring being
fashioned of the versatile fabric
imported from India known as
Patterns Subdued
These madras patterns are gen-
erally subdued, expressing their
individuality in quiet colors, and
take on an even more toned-down
.appearance after a few washings.
It's another distinguishing feature
of madras that its colors run;
clothiers like to call it "bleeding."
Of course there is "non-bleed-
ing" madras, they hasten to point
out, but somehow men seem to
like the faded, worn look their
madras garments soon develop.
Be his madras "bleeding" or

"non -bleeding," the university
man is certain to be outfitting
himself with various forms of it
for spring.
To class he will wear short-
sleeved sport shirts with buttoned-
down collars, tailored of madras,
hopsacking and searsucker. Many
will be covered with Persian print
Shirt Variety
In his dresser bureau will be
extra shirts of light-weight bas-
tiste oxford in bright single colors
of yellow, light blue, and gold;
pull-over shirts with two- and
three-buttoned fronts or boat-
necked T-shirts with three-quar-
ter length sleeves.
With them to class he will wear
slacks of wool and dacron, mostly
in grays, olives and browns. He
will also wear all-wool tropical
worsteds with plain, non-pleated
tops. He may have occasion to dig
out his white flannel slacks again,

as the perennial fashion promises
to stage a comeback this spring.
On reserve he will have heavy
cotton, sail - cloth - like "duck"
slacks or wool and partly wool
ones in checks or glen plaids.
To intersperse with more cas-
ual daily outfits and for more for-
mal affairs, the male collegiate
will be seen dressed in sport jack-
ets fashioned of madras, wool and
dacron combinations, and seer-
sucker cords.

Perhaps with an eye to further
use later in the fall, he will equip
himself with an all-wool light
jacket in a checkered pattern.
Spring for the university man
also demands bermuda shorts. His
most popular pair will probably
be of the ever-present madras, but
he may also stock himself with
shorts of poplin in natural shade
or olive and of baby cords in cot-
ton and dacron,



Men Choose
Old Standbys
In Jewelry
Cuff links, tie pins, collar pins,
and key chains are old standbys
in men's jewelry.
For the manywho has every-
thing, there are wedgewood cuff
links. Cuff links are hand-carved,
and the prices range from thirty
to one hundred dollars. Semi-pre-
cious stoned cuff links are also
bceoming a popular item, featur-
ing the topaz and striped on a
gold mounting.
Tie-tacks are among the big-
gest sellers in jewelry stores to-
day. The most popular items are
oval and culturad pearls. Nar-
row tie clasps have become an-
other attractive means of hold-
ing the tie in place.
More Wedding Rings
It' is interesting to note that
men have been buying wedding
rings in increasing numbers. This
trend started after World War II
and appears to remain for some
time to come. Men are buying
more than one watch for them-
selves now -- probably because
there is a shortage of skilled
watch repairmen, so that repairs
must be done in the factory, tak-
ing a month or more.
The present trend in men's
jewelry is toward silver, and this
is especially true in the spring.
Satin-finished silvec is the most
preferred type, prirrarily iii cuff
Novelty Items
Miscellaneous items such as
belt buckles, blazer buttors with
crests, pen knives, and key chains
are novelty items which provide
an attractive addition to the
With the increasing popularity
of tab collar shirts, collar pins,
popular at the turn of the cen-
tury, have made quite a smash
on the market.
Ann Arbor Sees
New Easy Wash
Pajama Trend
"Wash and wear" has now en-
tered the pajama industry, but
men's clothing store owners say
they do not feel that this will
bring any decline in sales.
One Ann Arbor clothier said
that perhaps the war and armed
service duty started the "ever in-
creasing" trend against pajamas.
The once popular satin loung-
ing pajamas that were worn in
the evening have been outmoded
by leisure sports clothing.
Pajamas are far from being
eliminated because they are still
popular gift items, used frequent-
ly for fraternity parties, and are
travel necessities.

Pack everything you think you
will need and then leave half of
it behind. That seems to be the
cardinal rule for packing for an
overseas trip.
Actually, by observing the fol-
lowing suggestions as to what to
pack in your lightest, strongest
suitcase, it should be relatively
simple to take that "once-in-a-
lifetime" trip.
Boys, it seems, have an easier
job when deciding what to take.
With the development of, drip-dry
fabrics, it isn't necessary to take
more than five or six shirts. Two

The next item on the list is
suits. Once again, praise be the
drip-drys! One drip dry suit and
one regular dacron and wool suit
are all that, are necessary. Dark
colors are most practicablerbe-
cause they are easier to care for,
and because European men wear
dark colors most of the time. A
sport jacket is also a valuable item
in the wardrobe.
Take Washable Pants
One or two pairs of wash and
wear slacks, and one pair of dac-
ron and wool slacks fulfill the
requirement for slacks.
One pair of dark cordovan or
black shoes is required for dress,
and a comfortable pair of walking
shoes is a necessity for sight-see-
ing. Along with footwear goes the
item "socks". Six or ten pairs of
cotton and nylon socks are a suf-
ficient number for a long trip,
when combined with occasional
stints at the laundry tub.
A hat is not desired. It takes up
too much room to pack right and
is a nuisance to carry. If a head
covering is needed, a cap of some
type will suffice.
Need A Raincoat
A lined raincoat is an essential
accesory, however, and an um-
brella is sometimes handy for a
cane, if it isn't raining; but this
is up to the traveler's discretion.
A lightweight sweater finishes up
the packing.

Girls should base their ward-
robe around one color scheme.
The trick is to take as few pairs
of shoes as possible, for shoes
take up room and are heavy. (It
is sometimes necessary to carry
one's own suitcase in some foreign
One pair of heels, one pair of
flats, and one comfortable pair
of soft - leather walking shoes
would be a good combination of
shoes. A pair of tennis shoes
might be thrown in, but aren't
A couple of pairs of bobby socks
and a good supply of nylons com-
plete the footwear department,
Have Four Blouses
About four dark-print drip-dry
blouses to be worn with either of
two solid - colored skirts would
comprise a good basic set of
casual clothes. One or two light
colored blouses are also handy,
Two sweaters, one for dress, and
one for warmth are good items to
have along.
Two dark - colored shirt - waist
dresses and a full skirt for travel-
ling are next on the list. A dress
that has a jacket that can be
used without the jacket is a valu-
able asset, as is one fancy dress
suitable for night-clubs. Of course,
any of these dresses that can be-
obtained in drip-dry material will
be more convenient than other

on personal taste, but since most

country is to lose your American
identity, sport shorts really aren't

in our new Saffell & Bush suits, they bring
to mind the classic artistry of sculpturing.
Hence it was most natural to endow these
creations with the generic name of "Sculptura."
You'll like them we're sure-simply because
they are so darn good looking. Now is the
time to see our complete collection.
