Trend In Town,
Country Favors
Striped Shirts
Checks, Basket Weaves
Are Also Popular; Locale
Is Determined By Cut
This season the spaced-stripe shirt
is one of the favorites. Shirts of this
description are suitable for town or
country wear, and the locale in which
they are best worn is determined not
so much by the pattern as by the cut
of the collar. While checked shirts
and basket weave patterns, as well as
solid colors, are still popular, the most
defined trend is towards stripes.
Striped shirts are by no means an
innovation but the character and I
spacing of the stripes is very different
from those shown in recent years.
Well-dressed men try to incorporate
in their shirts the colors of both the
tie and the suit. For example, a blue
suit with a wine-colored tie would
look well if worn with a shirt having
a light blue background and a very
fine wine-colored stripe.
Long Points Come Back
The first shirt shown here has the
long-pointed collar known as the
"London lounge." This collar has a
point 3'/8 inches in length, and it
is by no means to be confused with
the exaggerated longpointed collars
seen a few years ago. It is an ideal
collar for short men or those with
round faces and short necks, as it
tends to make the neck and face
look longer and more slender. The
pattern shown here carries one broad
and one fine stripe at spaced inter-
vals. This pattern reflects the trend
in London today. With it is worn a
shower spot tie.
Designed For Town
The second shirt is designed for
more formal occasions in town. The
body of the shirt is solid color, the
cuffs are white starched French fold
cuffs, and the demi-bosom bears hor-
izontal stripes and is starched. The
collar worn with this is the wide-
spread "Kent" collar, which is be-
coming to most men. Shown with it
is a solid color satin tie of the same
shade as the cuff links.
