Campus prep look
remains a tradition

The Michigan Daily-Saturday,

manager at The Bagpiper on South
University Ave., "Preppie clothes are
comfortable, practical and come in
bright colors. You can also incorporate
faddish styles such as layering."
The solid-colored and pin-striped
Oxford cloth buttoned-down collar
shirts cost $23.50 at The Bagpiper.
Eckrich said the shirts are practial
because, like most preppie clothes, they
always stay in style.
According to Kelly Evans,
department manager at the Miss J
Shop at Jacobson's Department Store,
tailored dresses, bermuda shorts, and
T-shirts are all in fashion.
BESIDES PREPPIE clothes, other
styles are also popular, Evans said.
"The romantic look of soft material
with lace and tucking is popular for
women," she said, adding that calico
skirts, pearl necklaces and cameo pins
also are enjoying an upsurge in appeal.
Evans also noted that pedal pushers,
bowling shirts, and baggies are part of
the "ultra-fashion" look. Designer
baggies-pants which are pleated at the
waist and taper to the ankle-cost
approximately $36. Described by
several shopowners as "unflattering,
but comfortable," baggies have not
caught on with students.
But Evans added that Ann Arborites
don't always follow fashion trends.
"They wear what they want and don't
care as much about fashion," she said.
BAGGIES ARE "dying in New

York," Evans said, but her store will
have available seersucker and poplin
editions soon.
Wenokur-Jacobs said that baggies
will die hard because "they're
unflattering." She added that people are
dressing up more and "the painter's
pants look isn't as prevalent."
Designer jeans for men and women
are still extremely popular in Ann
Arbor. Evans said the best-selling
designers are Gloria Vanderbilt,
Jordache, and Calvin Klein.
MEN'S TIGHTLY fitted Jordache
jeans cost $34 at Jacobson's J Shop for
Men. Store Manager Anthony Mullice
said "explosive colors" are popular.
Bell-botton pants are out of style and
straight-legged jeans are in, he said.
The Gentleman's Quarterly or "GQ
high fashion" look is also visible on
campus, said Morgan. He said Marty's
sells a lot of Nino Cerruti pleated pants
and narrow collared shirts.
Harry's Army Surplus, on
Washington Street, carries off-brand
mechandise, rather than designer
Rick Garcia, manager of Harry's,
said his customers are practical and
concerned with looking good, but not
paying top dollar.
"They may give up a little in terms of
quality, but they're wiser with their
money," Garcia explained. He said
Levis sell for approximately $19, while
comparable pants in an off-brand sell
for approximately $14.
