Utility Is Important Consideration In Choosing Men'



Practical Gifts
Are Preferred
By Gentlemen

Many Suggestions Include'
Luggage, Typewriters As
While it is often possible to please
a woman with a gift of some orna-
mental novelty, most men prefer1
practical presents which will be of
use to them.
A smart piece of luggage is always
a most acceptable gift. Even if a
man does not travel regularly, he al-
ways has a definite periodical need
for luggage and one or two smart,
well made pieces will last him for
years. T
Ideal Week-End Bag
Illustrated here is a Gladstone bag
in cowhide. This type of suitcase is
ideal for week-ends and is especially
useful where dress and day clothes
are necessary, as one side of the bag
can be packed with the dress clothes
and the other with the balance of
the wardrobe. Either side can be
reached without disturbing the other.
Behind the Gladstone bag is shown
a rawhide suitcase. This case is
very useful for packing suits as well
as linen, as it keeps the articles fiat.
and smoothly packed. The suitcase
is possibly the most valuable single
luggage item that a man can possess.
For the business or professional
man a portable typewriter always
makes a welcome present. Portables,
nowadays, are strongly constructed,
efficient instruments.
Portable Typewriters Good
For school, the portable is un-
rivalled as it does not occupy much
space in one's room and is as con-
veniently taken home as a small
overnight bag.
For the golf enthusiast a set of
matched woods or irons or both make
a preferred present. Care should be
taken in their selection, as the golf
club is a highly individual piece of
equipment and the recipient should
be permitted to select his own. A
golf bag of either canvas or leather is
an accessory every golfer requires.
For the tennis enthusiasts the best
rule is to try and duplicate the rack-
ets they already possess, as their
weight and balance presumably.
A radio, whether is be a smart
table model, a portable, or a console,
makes a fine Christmas present. Ra-
dios are obtainable in a great range
of prices to fit any pocketbook. The
small set illustrated above, has the

New Additions
To Wardrobe
Leather Windbreaker Is
Essential For Man Who
Loves Out-Of-Doors
No man can honestly say that his
wardrobe is absolutely complete-
and additions to it are always wel-
come. Of course in making the se-
lection, one must bear in mind the
type of clothing the man most re-
quires, and the type of activity in
which he is most interested.
For the outdoor man an alm st es-
sential part of his equipment is the
windbreaker of suede or smooth fin-
Ished leather. This may have either
a zipper or button front, or, as shown
in the illustration, a combination of
both. For all types of sportswear in
brisk weather, the leather windbreak-
er is an ideal garment.
A knitted cardigan is shown just
below the windbreaker. This may
be used in place of a pullover or in
place of a waistcoat, and comes in
both sleeveless and sleeve model. It is
an excellent present for those who
do not like sweaters that must be
put on over the head. The smart
checked pattern shown here is par-
ticularly useful for wear with coun-
try suits.
Below it is shown the most popular
type of pullover worn today. It is
one of a light weight Shetland in
blue with a dark blue neckline and
trim at the sleeves and bottom. Its
length is conveniently short and the
absene eof sleeves makes it practical
to wear with a suit. This pullover
is a smart and comfortable substitute
for a waistcoat.
Pajamas are welcome presents at.
any time of the year, and the two
models shown here are as practical
as they are smart. The upper one is
in broad British stripes and is a type
favored by many. The lower one is in
a solid color and carries a piping in
a contrasting shade. Both are in
good taste, and are available in a
range of prices.
Both styles are the button up the
front variety but this is not to imply
that they are the only style. Rivalling
them and even surpassing them in
the judgment of some men is the
pajama that slips over your head.
The advantage being that it is but-

Jewelry and accessories are thingst

themselves. They frequently have a
real need for these things, and so,

Christmas presents. Below is shown
an assortment of jewelry which would
please the most discriminating.

works on an entirely new principle
and is most satisfactory. Alongside

letter monogram-a smart individual
