Latest spr ing styles in suits for men in general especially feature
worsteds and gabardines, with new and unusual patterns. As for the
cuts of the "backs" of the new spring suit coats themselves, the new side-
vents are becorr ing more and more popular and the old bi-swing back of
former years is again coming back into prominence. 'The shirred backs
and other complicated, pleated backs are losing the favor with which they
were so enthusiastically acclaimed last year and the years before.

Select New Shirts By Collars,
Not By Colors, Experts Declare

Colors, the brighter the better, will'
be the keynote upon which connois-
seurs of stylish neckwear will base
their choices this spring. Whether
in bow ties or in four-in-hands,
whether in stripes or in small de-
signs, you will do well to choose ties
which have Ibch color in them, pref-
erably the lighter shades.
Foulard, that dependable fabric,
will again be one of the leaders.
This serviceable material will be pre-
sented in many different styles. Dark
backgrounds with light, colorful de-
signs will be very popular. Pre-
dit-ions have it that plain colors with
large polka dots, spaced regularly and
irregularly, will occupy a prominent
place in the up-to-date wardrobe.
Ties Feature Spots
From London comes the tie fea-
turing shower spots, which are white
dots of various sizes spaced irregular-
ly on a blue or other dark back-
ground. Other figures and designs,
regularly spaced, will be numerous
among the foulards. Stripes will not
predominate in this material, how-
ever, the only stripes among the foul-
ards occurring in the familiar guard's
tie, which will be fairly evident with
town clothes.
One of t he newer th ings being of-
fered for this season is a silk and
wool mixture, known as "bahama
twill" and various other trade names.
This will not be so prominent in the
next few weeks, but will take its
place among the leaders when the
sunny days are with us once more.
Broad stripes in light pastel shades
will be featured, but plmin colors and
plaid designs will also take their
place in the field. This silk and wool
mixture is a very sturdy tie, and does
not wrinkle badly.
:Wuolens Popular
Woolens will come in three dif-
ferent styles, the plain, the plaid, and
the spaced figures, the stripes being
I left out of the picture almost com-
pletely. Reds, greens, and browns
will predominate.
Bow ties are expected to make quite
a bid for recognition, although it is
problematical whether they will be
any more popular than they have
been during last spring, summer, and
fall. Bows will be seen both with
pointed and square ends, but it is
pretty certain that the pointed ends
will hold sway on ie diagonal and
the country club.
Light colors with darker stripings
will be very popular. Backgrounds of
creams, tans, and yellows, with stripes
of various shades of brown, red, and
green. Foulards with broad blended

One of the new-
est features is the

moderately popular but these styles
this year will be the most popular of
any submitted in previous years, style
experts say. In general the backs
and shoulders will be "drape" models

stripes will also be prominent among
the pointed end bows.
Botany ties will come both in bows
and four-in-hands. However, the
botany will mostly be among the four-
in-hands, for the bows this spring will
be mostly of lighter material than
that offered in the bows by the makers
of botanies.

Men's store merchants, on the look-
out for fashion trends in Ne- York
City, take frequent strolls along the
"fifties," bounded by Fifth and Park
avenues. This is the fashion zone
of the big city. With all the best
hotels located in this district, as
are smart shops and places of enter-
tainment, this section has become
the center of the smartly attired New
Yorker, know as the "white-tie


Another popular suit is the hard-
spun, which is included in rich,
double twist fabrics, made of "im-
ported seasoned" wool. This com-
paratively new sensation is included
in small checks, plaids and squares.
Double-Breasted Models
Double breasted models, those with
the "roll" type of lapel of which only
the bottom button is closed, as well as
the usual comon type, will again be
shown in spring styles this year. How-
ever, double breasted have never been
all they "have been cracked up to be"
and this year it seems as if they are
due to be relegated to the back-
ground by the single breasted and
the three-button English style coats.
For Sunday wear a double breasted
unfinished worsted jacket with only
four buttons, with the lapel rolled to

over believe.
Tropical worsteds this year will
again be popular especially among
the older men although some of

and show windows would hardly be
amiss on some undergraduate or
member of the younger generation.
These suits again are offered in wide

Designs Depart From Old
Combinations Aind Lean
Toward Deep Tones
The new male color interest in the
spring shirts will make the females
look like timorously shrinking con-
servatives. Whereas the women for-
merly deplored the absence of color
in men's clothing the new spring
styles will put them to shame with
an unparalleled aggregation of color
combinations. Deep tones will be the
favorites with midnight, chocolate,
gunmetal, wine and bottle green re-
placing the pastel shades.
The trend in designs is defintely to-
ward checks with the range extending
from small shepard's and hound's
tooth to plaid and tartan oversquares,
taking in the tattersalls and window-
pane checks in its vast stride. So
checks of any kind, color or area will
be preferred by the shirt-elite.
Stripes Prominent
Stripes are also prominent but
principally are widely separated. The
placid stripes, few and far between
sire a new interpretation of tihe
striped shirt and will be in demand.
The unique polychromatic stripes
will also be well up in the running.
To obtain the virile, rugged look,
the Gun Club will be popular. This
heavily-checked shirt with the double
vertical dotted lines encasing the
checks will give that desired outdoor
look. The backgrounds are found in
brown, purple and blue which blend
equally well with either brown or
grey sport coats. White backgrounds
are also popular for emphasis in the
Scottish effect checks.
Small Pinpoint Checks
In the smaller pinpoint checks,
which are favorites with the more
conservative, a pleasing combination
is found with a white background and
dark blue designs. However, the de-
signs may range from black to light
greys with almost any color fin the
spectrum forming the background..
The striped shirt being shown for
spring has the English solited collar
and is done in the imported striped
broadcloths and the maroon hand-
blocked foulard are on a par in the

early season running. Rather wide
Fti ipes in the awning mode on a
white or colored ground are also pop-
ular with the shirt-conscious.
For dress wear the styles introduced
in the late fall will prevail during
the spring and summer months. The
late season favorite of solid navy
blue or light blue shirts with white
detachable collars will still be the
most popular.t
Collars are assuming a large share
of attention with the prevailing collar,
l he widespread Duke of Kent which
will predominate the red, white and
black tweed checked shirts.. Varia-
lions of the Duke of Kent have been
introduced in the East where the
button-down model has resulted in
1h longer, fuller collar in the wide-
spread class. The widespread but-
ton-down collar has proved the fa-
vorite already in university and bus-
iness circles. But there are those that
still prefer the regulation collar and
these comprise a large portion of the
collars being shown along with the
Duke of Kent.
