nite acceptance of any one pattern
has been evident at any time as the
aresent enormous popularity of the
numerous variations of Glen Urqu-
hart plaids. First obseizved almost
two and a half years ago at, so s c o0
the early spring functions in the ea:t,
such as the Uniled Hunts and other
:sporting e'ents, this pattern is grow-
ing consistently and is constantly
extending its influence into all tha
branches of men's apparel.
It is seen now in neckwear, shirts,
hose, suits, and even in robes, pa-
jamas, and shorts. There are two
types of plaids of which Scotland is
the ancestral home, and clan plaids
and the district plaids. The Glen
Jrquhart pattern is probably the
best known of the latter group, desig-
nating in the homeland the districi;
of origin.

impetus For Cor tort
Formal wear for this spring and
summer has already indicated that
it will follow the impetus of the past
season for more comfot as well as[
more color. An example that got off
to a good start last year and is ex-
pected to become even more popular
this season is the mess jacket, as
It comes in varying styles, the one
shown here having the conventional
peaked lapel and buttons. It can be
worn with a weskit or with a black
conmerbund, a sash that is wound I
around the waist. Some wear their
regular tuxedo trousers with the
jacket but it is best, because of the
shortness of it in back, to have a
special high-waisted pair.
Another model is often seen with
the white drill shawl collar and with-
out buttons. It is unusual to find it
being worn without the commerbund.

A black tie com letes the picture and
sets off the outfit by contrast.
Another variation of this style that
those "in the know" expect to set the
paice this year is the shawl collar
single breasted white linen drill din-
ner jacket. This is cut along the
same lines as the regular Tuxedo
jacket and is to be worn with trous-
ers to match or with black dress
trousers, black tie, and weskit.
