Camel's Iir Is Still Popular



Style Show To
Ennovate New
You asked for something new?
Here it is in a pair of slacks and a
vest to match - the latter buttons
over a convertible collar and may be
worn as a golf jacket. It is worn with
a sport coat.
You will see it on display at the
Style Show this afternoon. A two-
some is what they call it, and they're
trying to promote it on this campus.
The matched vest and slacks come
in most any color and style. Small
checks will be featured.
With it you can wear almost any,
kind of sport jacket. One of the most-
popular is a white shetland jacketx
built with patch pockets and a trick
back. The white linen jacket with
darker slacks is responsible for this
type of kit breaking out.
For undergrad activities (and out-
side the school, too) it is a pretty
slick looking item.

A woman's prerogative has always
been to have the last word. But all
male skepticism aside, there is one
time when she doesn't make use of it.
She stands patiently and takes it
while the beloved tells her that the
little pillbox chapeau that she had so
painstakingly sought out makes her
look like a cross between a bell-hop
and an organ grinder's monkey.
She suffers in silence while he in-

might return the question, but won't.
Not very much, we admitted.
But a few things, like this: we
don't like derbys with tuxedos, we
don't very much care for tuxedos and
we detest derbys. Not to be indeli-
cate, but we would also like to add
that there is something so much

moment seems to be toward an elab-
orately casual English countryside
manner. The balmaccan topcoat is a
case in point.
Reversible coats, it would seem, are
not quite so popular as before. They
just won't create a demand, although
you can get them if you so desire.
Raglan shoulder, the half belt, and
slashed pockets are all the thing now.
You can get them in browns, whites,
greys and checks. The checked model
seems to be the most popular in Ann
But getting back to camel's hair.
With the tendency so pronounced in
the direction of soft fabrics and looser
models in clothing, it is no wonder
that the college man accepts this type
of topcoating, for it fills the demand
to perfection.
Natural Camel Popular
The color, too, being natural camel,
is alone enough to guarantee wide-
spread acceptance.
We saw one on display at one of
the State Street stores which was
double-breasted with pleated back,
and full-belted. The buckle was a
ever leather ring arrangement.
And it had buttons - ah, yes, but-
tons. The buttonless wrap around
goat didn't last it seems. The boys
asually came back to have buttons
put on, saying it wouldn't hold to-
;ether si ccessfully.
Raincoats Come To Life
Once upon a time (and not so long
Lgo at that), raincoats added a
Dreary touch to weather that wasn't
,xactly in itself an inspiration to any-
one save poets and songwriters. In
Ann Arbor's rainy climate there is
nothing more important than a suit-
able raincoat. You need one to keep
up your spirits.
Undergraduates here have accepted
two new raincoats that are both good
looking and serviceable. One particu-
larly smart model carries a small
check on the outside and a larger one
on the inside - almost a reversible
effect. This coat is made as a bal-
maccan with a short military con-
vertible collar and five leather but-
White Raincoat Popular
Another coat similar in style and
one that is seen a lot is the whitish
.ne -very light in weight and may
be worn comfortably over a topcoat.
3eing light in weight, it makes a per-
sect summer and warm weather rain-
:oat by itself.
Both of these coats are made with
a tremendous drape to the skirts
which tend to keep the rain off the
feet. Neither is belted and both have
slashed pockets.
Get them with a large enough col-
lar to afford protection, when turned
up, for the back of the neck.
