trends In Spring Clothes For
Well-Dressed Man Described
It is an axiom among well-dressed men that the clothes you wear
should suit your personality. If this is true, it's to be hoped that you're a
dashing colorful person, because that's just about the only way to describe
the fashion set up for spring. It is probably more logical and simple to
treat each type of clothing and accessories separately. Here's the line-up
for the coming season.

Soft loungy clothing is the kind
that most undergraduates are most
interested in, since they have a good
30 years or so in the distant business
world to sober down to banker's gray
and hard worsteds. The trend in
suits that have a sporting touch is
to an elaborately casual English
countryside manner of dress. Coats
are longer than usual with just a
slight amount of waist suppression.
Thetchest and shoulder lines are
natural without padding or stiffen-
ing to mold the coat into an extreme
shape and they are almost invari-
ably single breasted with a moder-
ately notched lapel. The better ones
are three button (a style that hasn't
been noticed hereabouts for quite
a while) and the back carries no
tricks or ornaments except a center
or sidevents. At the other end of the
line is the shirred back sport suit,
very often made with the addition
of military saddle pockets and an
inverted center pleat in the back.
This model has had quite a run and
is holding up well for spring al-
though it might logically be said to
have reached its peak. It's a long
way from the toboggan yet, though.
In suits of this type, the soft rough
fabrics are the thing, and the colors
and patterns that are setting the
pace stop just short of race suicide.
Blue-grays, browns, heather tones
and cream mixtures are as good as
any, though if you've a secret hank-
ering to really blossom out for a
change you'll find bluish greens with
brown overplaids, black white and
red checks, hound's tooth checks in
blue white and brown and so on to
three bromos and a hot bath. If
you're troubled with spots before the
eyes, don't ask to, see something dif-
ferent. You will, anyhow.
Double-Breasted 'In'
Double breasted suits are getting
better every season. The new models
are a far step from the shapeless
wonder that Mr. Hoover used to gad
about Washington in. Now they're
styled with an eye to youthful shoul-
ders and well controlled waistlines.
You'll want pleated trousers, and if
you like a bit of sauce with your
apparel, an outside cash or ticket
pocket. You guess which you'll likely
be carrying in it. Custom tailor's
tVuches are certainly not to be de-
spised on clothing priced within an
anemic allowance. Best adapted to
this model are unfinished worsted
and worsted flannel fabrics. Chalk
stripes are considered the real thing
by those who start the fashion ball
rolling, and these materials certainly
tailor, look. and wear nicely-if you
want more than that, you ought to
be in Congress. Color is largely pref-
e'ential, though the lighter shades'
of blue and grey are off to a good
start. There's a new model in the pic-
ture, too, a double breasted jacket
with a very long rolled lapel. The
back of the coat has side vents. The
English seem to have taken it up in
a big way, and although its success
over here is still a debatable point,
you certainly won't go wrong on it if
you're the kind of guy that hates to
see his double coming down the
Forget Convention
Sport ensembles are still as com-
fortable and as sensible as anything
you can own. Unless you're under
four feet tall and have a greenish
cast to your face, don't let habit,
convention or caution keep you from
getting a sport jacket that looks as
though it might be a close relative to
a horse blanket. Color is just natur-
ally essential to make the thing
effective. Large squares, over size
checks and such are not only fash-
ionable, but agreeably pleasing after
the initial jolt has worn off. The
shirred back coat dominates the pic-
ture here, since the trickier the coat,
the better. Gun club check slacks are
due for a wholesale acceptance, and
some of the smartest odd trousers
are made in chalk striped flannel, a

combination that is as good looking'
as it is different. They should be
pleated, of course, and cut very full
with nlenty of leg room. All in all.

debt, something's wrong. Never have
there been so many styles and pat-
terns to choose from.
Best probably is the button down
model, either with a long point that
rolls slightly and jibes nicely with
knit ties and sport clothes, or a wide
spread, short point number that is
neat as anything and blends well
with trimmer apparel. These shirts
come in oxford and tweed cloths
with plenty of color and pattern.
Don't be afraid of them. Then there's
a new job, a tab collar, only without
tabs, that is worn pinned. Quite
jaunty and trim looking, best
adapted to stripe effects in bold col-
ors. Then the good old tab in darker
hues and more striking patterns than
ever. A great style for dressier wear
is a stiff collar sewed on to the shirt
like the ordinary soft collar. Rounded
and eyelet numbers are still in the
race, though not as much as they
used tobe. The whole point is that
shirts have shaken off every inhibi-
tion and are correct in patterns as
bold as you dare to wear.
Light weight wool hose have dug
into their position as year 'round
favorites of the university man and
are keeping this place right along.
White ground wools in small Argyle
plaids are exceptionally smart and
exceptionally good looking. Hori-
zontal stripes in lisles and wool,
with bright colors and blended
effects are well in the picture and
vertical ribbed socks just don't seem
to go out of style. Heavy wool plaid
hose are still the nicest thing you
can get, though. Quite a snug price,
but really worth it.
Buckskin still leads the foot race,
although there will be considerable
interest in shoes of the Jai-Alai
type. To clear up quest on this score,
the name is pronounced hi-li and the
shoe is a heavy crepe soled job with
elkskin uppers, brought unchanged
from the courts of sport in Cuba.
Browns are especially good in buck,
either in a plain toe model for in-
formal campus and sporting wear,
or in a blucher model with black
leather soles and heels for town and
traveling. Very smart, indeed. There
is a new white buck shoe with black
rubber sole that's got the key to ad-
mission to any well dressed circle.
Also, black and white combinations
are being revived. White's become a
bit too general to suit the taste of
those who veer away the minAte a
fashion becomes common, and it's
not a bad change. Some of the new
ideas in two tone footwear are well
worth inspection.
White suits are still in great de-
mand for warm weather clothing.
But this year they'll be available in
every type of weave-diagonals, her-
ringbones, rough textures-so you
can select the type of fabric suit-
able for your use depending whether
you plan to wear it in the city or
at some resort or other country
place. The informal outfit for sports,
lounging and such will be a dark
brown polo shirt, gray flannel slacks,
and brown buck shoes. A silk hand-
kerchief knotted about the neck adds
a comfortably nonchalant lock. Sum-
mer formal offers two choices-the
white, shawl collar tuxedo coat with
black trousers, or a double breasted
black coat made in tropical worstead
that is far lighter and more com-
fortable than winter wear garments.
If you wear the white coat, the
smartest accessories shown will be
a ruby red jewelry band and a wine
red cummerbund. Very sophisti-

Here Are Some
Good Tips For
Summer Wear
Flannel Suits In Checks
And Overplaids Will Be
'The Thing'
We have spoken on these pages of
spring wear but here are absolutely
some of the "hottest" and the best
tips for midsummer wear.
To be described not as a new
fashion but as a very popular and
practical current one for warm
weather wear is the flannel suit, par-
ticularly in light grey double breasted
models. While last summer's empha-
sis on chalked stripe flannels in grey
and blue still holds good, a new notej
that should not be overlooked is
seen in colored overplaids on flannel.
Regardless of pattern, however, the
double breasted model, especially
with the long roll lapel, is fashion's
favorite son this season.
Another style that is fast near-
ing the status of a staple among
summer suitings is gabardine. For
town wear, gabardine will be featured
in double breasted models while
single breasted coats with belted and
shirred backs will be good for resort
and country wear. Some coats will be
shown with center vents, while many
will feature side vents.
Although solid colors are the most
popular in tropical worsteds, for the
first time these light weight fabrics
for business wear, which range from
seven to nine ounces, are being made
in definite smart patterns, such as
small checks, Glen Urquharts, and
unusual stripe effects.
The vogue for light colored jack-
ets with darker trousers places em-
phasis on the odd jacket made up in
such fabrics as linen, seersucker,
gabardine, flannel and Shetland.
Scheduled for greater popularity this
summer is the trend in odd jackets
toward checks and plaids especially
in Shetlands aid other light weight
tweeds and flannels.
Referring to odd trousers, white,
medium gray, and fawn colored
flannels still hold their popularity.
They may be worn effectively with
practically any kind of coat, whether
a regulation sports jacket or the
jacket of a summer suit.

Harris Tweeds,
Camel Hairs Are
'Tops' For Coats
Harris tweeds and camel hairs are
still on the crest of the wave. The
camels have really taken a beating
since some enterprising man found
what a great coat their hair makes.
The bettor models are the loose cut
polo coat (or its, first cousin, the
wrap-around) either full or half
belted. In tweeds, the balmacan is
still tops and heaven only knows
when another model as good will
come along. However, there's a new
number that may be a dark horse.
It's a single breasted notch lapel
fly front coat with an outside cash
pocket. It looks like a million. Checks
and herringbones are the best bet.
Also, it might pay you to investigate
the reversible jobs. They should be
made of rather light weight material
to avoid unpleasant bulk. In Ann

er, they come in might mighty
