Two-Tone Ensembles Are
Campus Leaders When
Warm Weather Comes
Flannel Stll Tops
If our sport jacket style editor has
solved your spring sport jacket pro-
blem, there remains the question of
what to do with that beautiful, rich,
smart, smooth, neat, dapper, natty
sport jacket. Naturally you'll wear
it. But with what? Why with pants,
of course. Well, we hope s, but what
sort of pants? You see what we are
getting at? Exactly, your pants.
What we are trying to say is that
without the proper slacks to go with
it, a new sport jacket is more or less
a white elephant.
Need Right Slacks
Sport jackets are the rage on cam-
pus because with anywhere from
two to three dozen pairs of slacks to
go with one jacket you virtually have
the same number of different out-
fits. But not any sort of trousers will
go with a good sport jacket.
Still holding the title is the flannel,
plain-cut, slack. The varying shades
of grey, tan, brown, and even blue
we leave to your discrimination to
match your jacket. Two-tones will be
especially popular. If you have a
brown jacket, you'll want darker
brown slacks, or a grey jacket will
call for darker grey slacks, and a
tan jacket will take light brown
slacks, and so on ad-infinitum.
This two-toning in your sport out-
fits should be your No. 1 outfit. But
since variety is the spice of life,
crossing colors should make your
wardrobe astonishingly peppery.
There is nothing wrong with using
a brown pair of slacks with a grey
jacket, or vice versa.
The next favorite slacks outfit
promises to be the veteran herIng-
bone woolens. They are entering the
arena for the fourth consecutive
year now, and while may style ex-
perts still have money on them to
come through this season with flying
colors (figure of speech, colors are
tapoo) the new covert cloth carries
our bucks, and might even unseat
the champion flannel.
Of course, if you have. a covert
jacket, shy away from covert slacks,
but if you have a woolen jacket any
cloth will go with it.
Then the gabardine that came in
so strong last year, will be in the race
The flannels and gahardins,
style dogma says, must be of plain
and simple cut. English pleats, and
side pleats in these cloths seem
over-rich or overdone. Coverts will
stand a slight front English pleat
leading into the crease, and the her-
ringbone, tweeds, pepper anl salt
and other woolens and plaids wil
take all the pleatings you can give
them, all the side pleat that raged
for a short time several years ago, is
now definitely passe.
Pegged Trouser Smart
If you like the conservative touch,
and we think it can ue very smart
on long-legged Beau Brummels, the
pegged trouser is the thing.
The woolens and worsteds are be-
ing made with belts of the same
material, and in some cases looki
pretty good. But usually the better
quality slacks will not have the belt-
Three Raincoat Styles For Ann Arbor's
Suspenders To Be Gay In Spring;
Purple And Orange Looks Nice
It has been learned from well-in-
formed sources that men will keep
their pants up with suspenders and
their socks up with garters this year.
Not that we see the necessity for
either; life might be much more pic-
turesque with pants and socks down.
But modesty rears its lovely head and
fashion rules that garters and socks
shall bring 'the upswing' to men's.
Suspenders and garters were deem-
ed even more essential by us after we
made a brief but nauseating survey'
of the male "stems" on campus. We
ipspected short stumpy ones and
long skinny ones and fair hairless
ones, and dark hairy ones, and
reached the conclusion that no Michi-
gan male made will ever make a good
chorus girl. We also concluded that

To Be Wider
Suspenders then are necessary and
Bond Street reports that they will be
much wider this year. There still re-
mains, however, the problem of choos-
ing the right color.
We recommend a conservative
choice. A mellow combination of red,
yellow and purple can be relied upon
to put the little women into fits of
ecstacy. The male must be cautious,
however. Ecstacy is quite similar to
There are other color selections
available. A combination of oranget
and green is always tactful, except1

able, except in Germany. Blazingf
Nazi black and brilliant Fascist brownt
are in the best of taste, except in
Moscow. For American wear, how-
ever, we recommend baby blue. ItI
connotes innocence and what female
doesn't appreciate a naive male ast
a companion, especially if a fat wal-
let is added to the naivete.
Garters To MatchI
Garters should match the suspen-
ders and as in the case of suspenders
only such conservative colors as scar-
let, violet and mustard should be
chosen. Bond Street also claims that
garters will be wider this year.
Garters and suspenders are also
handy as a means' toward suicide.
They are best suited for this use,
however, when their elasticity is lost.
In that case, we recommend some of
the cheaper grades. For a quick,
clean and reliable suicied an almost
worn out garter or suspender is in1
the best of taste and can be secured
for amazingly reasonable prices.
Rumor has it that the left sock of
a pair will be the exact duplicate of
the right sock this year. As yet we
have been unableto confirm this, but
we'll give you what developments we

with the same combination.

Pipes Still Retain Popularity
Among Ma jority Of College Men
In general, it might be said that
the average college man would rather
spend three dollars and have three
,pipes than to invest his whole for-
tune in one super-elegant job. Al-
though it is quite proper to have a
change of pipes so that they each
may get a chance to dry completely,
we are inclined to bleieve that is
more a result of applied economy
to-ago-with-fit. Coverts, gabardines,
and flannels should be worn with
suspenders. Hot weather, if it ever
comes again, will male you apprec-
iate a loose suspender rather than
a tight belt, which will be a source of
While the belt-lines should defin-
itely not be low, detour around the
chest-high Harlem models that are
bound to find their way to town.

than of a knowledge of the inherent
nature of pipes.
Pipes have long been associated
with the college man. (No humor
intended). Again it is a question of
economy, as it is cheaper to smoke
a pipe than to buy cigarettes. Then,
too, a pipe is reputed to give a man
an air of virility and ruggedness. The
fact that women do not indulge in
pipe-smoking as yet,
Stocks Seen Returning

More and more men are favoring
stocks of colored foulard silk or cash-
