ollege Men Must Have A Versatile Wardrobe

Most of America's universities are
either in the country or within easy
reach of it, and college men lean defi-
nitely towards country clothes. At the
same time they maintain an adequate
supply of town clothing for their fre-
quent-sometimes too frequent-ex-
cursions to the metropolitan centers
and their attendant amusements.
In this picture the seated figure is
shown in a comfortable shetland
jacket bearing a wihdow pane over-
plaid pattern. His trousers are of a
rey worsted flannel, ,his socks are
3x3 rib knitted wool hose, and he is
wearing a pair of leather Norwegian
dippers suitable for lounging at home
or for resort wear out-of-doors. A
button-down collar shirt of white!
oxford and a figured foulard tie com-
plete the ensemble. .
His roommate, apparently just re-I
,urning from a week-end in town, is
wearing a dark grey snap brim hat
(in the colder months, he'd probably
have worn a derby), dark blue double-
breasted overcoat of medium weight,
a dark suit, white starched collar,
solid color shirt, and black and white
shepherd's check tie.
Formerly clothes peculiar to the
iiversity man were considered smart
on the campus but they had no posi-
tioni"in ordinary walks of life. Nowa-
days there is no special type of college
dress. They model their attire along
the lines of fashion accepted by
smart men the world over.
It is only by giving the proper at-
tention, which these details of fashion
merit, that a truly smart ensemble
may be achieved. Until the weather
gets very warm indeed every man
should wear gloves out-of-doors.

Modern Man's
Toilet Articles
Come In Sets1
Shaving Materials Boxed*
In Handsome Leather;
Suitable For Display
Every man acquires a certain
amount of toilet articles, and in the
past most men have been in the habit
of picking them up casually when-
ever any particular item ran out.
The trend amongst most smart men
today is to purchase their toilet ac-
cesories in matched sets. This sim-
plifies the shopping problem and also
makes for uniformity.
A third advantage is the fact that
sets of this sort make most accept-
able presents. An ideal one is a
matched set, handsomely boxed with
a background of the New York sky-
line. It consists of a bottle of men's
eau de cologne, after-shaving talc,
shaving lotion and a tube of shaving
soap. The first three containers are
handsomely covered in genuine peb-
ble grain leather, and the set looks
as well on the bathroom shelf as it
does in the box. Everything in the
set is made of the finest materials
obtainable, and whether it is pur-
chased for oneself or as a gift it will
be sure to give lasting satisfaction.
There is also another practical
gift set. This consists of an after-
shaving lotion, a wooden bowl of
shaving soap and an after-shaving
talc in a gold box. All three are
handsomely packaged in a strongly
made brown box, and all have a
fresh, clean fragrance. A set of this
sort will keep a man supplied with
shaving necessities for many weeks.

of the year, and as these sweaters
are available in a great many va-
rieties of weights nd patterns, the

A new wristwatch has recently
been introduced that has, in addi-
tion to an ordinary dial, a split sec-
ond hand which records to fifths of a
second. A series of numbers on the
center of the face aids in computing
exactly how many miles per hour
any moving ,object may be traveling.
An outer dial can be used to deter-
mine how far away thunderstorms,
gun fire and so forth are.
This is the first watch of its type in
the popular price group, and it has
features which are not included in
many of the more expensive models.
For those interested in sports, or for
officers of the army, navy, or reserve
corps, it is an ideal time piece.
Because the boutonniere furnishes
a pleasant touch of color it is par-
ticularly suitable for spring wear. The
smartness of the ensemble is en-
hanced when the flower color
matches the tie or is in contrast with
the shirt.

Good-looking luggage has always1
been admired and sought after by
men of taste. Manufacturers have
worked unceasingly to provide appro-
priate luggage for every travel re-
quirement. As times change so do
travel requirements, and to meet the
necessities of today a completely new
range of luggage is available which
differs as much from the type of bag-
gage carried twenty years ago as the
motor cars of today differ from the
automobiles of 1917.
The first piece of luggage in the
group of three illustrated below is a
talon-fastened overnight bag. In one
of its Gladstone-like compartments,
all toiletry necessities are neatly ar-
ranged and held in position. The di-
viding partition carries pockets for
handkerchiefs and small pieces of
linen, while the other half is reserved
for packing shirts and possibly a pull-
over or odd jacket. For the short
journey this piece of luggage is ideal.
Below it is shown a square attache
case made rather larger than the ma-
jority of this type of case. It carries
a series of jackets with spaces for
card indexing on each, and is de-
signed for use by the traveling execu-
tive or business man. All papers and
business data may be filed in this
case and are as readily available as
they would be in a well-conducted
In addition to this convenience,
there is space in the case for toilet
articles and a cliange of linen, and
for those executives who occasionally
must make overnight runs it provides
an excellent solution to their travel
Next is shown a more conventional
type of suitcase. This case has square
corners and its locks and handle are
of smart modern construction. Its
chief virtue lies in the fact that it is
neatly made of strong cowhide, and

its appearance is in keeping with the
time. The suitcase is one of the most
practical of all types of luggage be-
cause it permits the packing of suits
with a minimum of folding, with a
corresponding minimum of wrinkling.
For short journeys where it is neces-
sary to carry along dress clothes and
a change of day clothing, a suitcase is
an absolute essential.
In fact, for anything with the ex-
ception of an overnight journey or a
most informal week-end, a suitcase
must be included in one's luggage.
Kit bags are practical for linen and
smaller articles, and larger trunks
are necessary when long voyages are
contemplated, but for all-round use,
there is nothing to duplicate or re-
place a well-proportioned and strong-
ly-made suitcase.
