Each year evening clothes for the!
well-dressed man show slight modifi-
cations in cut and tailoring, and for-
mal attire for this season is no excep-
tion. The Michigan man who wants"
to be considered correct in his choice
of "after six" clothes for fraternity:

are slightly longer, coming one inch
below the knee. White vests for for-
mal evening wear show a revolution-
ary change in the length of their
points which are much longer than
those of previous seasons, but straight
lined vests are also sho17n by the "
better men's shops. The lodger point-:

Irish poplins and magadores are

style, it too has wide peak lapels.
Lower flap pockets and a center-vent
in back add to its smartness. The

but is being replaced by the more for-
