Completeifardrobe Should Include
Dinner Jacket As Well As Tailcoat



Though the tide of fashion in for-
mal clothes moves, it has none of
the erratic movements that charac-
terize women's hats and for this rea-
son it is incumbent upon the judi-
ciouz man to select authentic and
well-tailored evening clothes for he
will depend on them for at least
several seasons.
This advice is particularly felici-
tous in Ann Arbor, because evening
clothes are worn quite extensively
here and the popularity of tailcoats
makes it necessary to buy wisely for
they are more expensive than dinner
jackets and worn less frequently and
for this reason have a longer period
of use.
Velvet Colors Outmoded
The above illustration shows a
representative evening gathering.
The first gentleman is in a smart four
button, double-breasted, dark blue,
knee length, Chesterfield. The coat,
as do all smart Chesterfields this
season, carries a cloth and not a
velvet collar. The second figure is in
a double-breasted dinner jacket hav-
ing ribbed silk peak lapels. He wears

a turn-over collar and a black bat
wing tie. The ,third masculine figure
is in a single-breasted, fly front Ches-
terfield with a cloth collar. The
coat is quite short and very smartly
proportioned. The next figure is in
an evening raglan coat with a mili-
tary collar. Just below the collar are
ribbed silk facings. It has a fly front
and is very smart with a tailcoat. The
man with a glass of champagne is
wearing the correct new tailcoat with
properly proportioned lapels. With
it he wears a bold wing collar and
white semi-butterfly tie. Observe his
waistcoat which is single-breasted
but which has neither points nor
lapels. Alongside of him is an older
gentleman in a single-breasted peak
lapel dinner jacket having satin fac-
ings, an innovation this year. With
it he wears a bola wing collar and
black semi-butterfly tie.
Waistcoats Backless
Above is illustrated the correctI
waistcoat with the tailcoat. It has
three buttons, medium points and
square cut lapels. Backless waist-
coats are preferred by smartly dressed

Below are two evening shoes. Bothj

silk bow and below it is a patent

achieved popularity for wear with the
dinner jacket.
With either the dinner jacket or
the tailcoat, the correct shirt i~s the
starched bosom two stud model with
a small bosom. With the tailcoat, a
bold wing collar and white semi-but-
terfly tie are proper as shown above.

best. With the dinner jacket, either a
bold wing collar and black tie are*
proper as shown above, semi-
butterfly tie or a turn-over collar
and black bat wing tie are correct.
The correct studs with the dinner
jacket are of black enamel or plain
gold and cuff links should match.
Two Ties Shown
Evening mufflers may be of white
knitted silk, or, as illustrated below,
white crepe silk. The muffler shown
here has a tassel fringe and carries
a three initial monogram in dark
blue. Below it is shown the two

either a silk hat or a collapsible
opera hat. Above is shown an opera
hat open and closed. This type of
hat is far more durable than the
silk hat, and as it is very smart, it
has won favor throughout the
Hombergs Permissable
As an alternative to the opera or
silk hat, the black homburg is per-
missable with the dinner jacket. Both
the homburg and the collapsible
opera hats are available in the mid-
night blue shade to match midnight
blue dinner jackets and tailcoats.
Midnight blue has long since
passed from the ranks of the novel
and is now countenanced in the high-
est fashion circles.
