THE MICHIGAN NDAILY
The Saddle Shoes Still Have It Among Collegiate Footwear Fi
And Whites In
Lead As Usual
Mexican Huaraches And
Norwegian Brogans Add
Variety To Foot Styles
Saddle shoes are saddle shoes, and
collegiates are collegiates, which no-
body can deny. Therefore this spring
will see more shiny brown saddles,
atop red, red rubber soles, smartly
held by white stitching, than have
ever stood outside Angell-.Hall before.
Put t ortunately there are those in-
teetuals who refuse to cowtow to
the masses, and insist on wearing
sompething else. Well, while you're
wearing something else, you might

Huarache appeared and ws grabbed
at for lounging and beach wear. This

that high yaller, has regular shoe
laces, and uppers, but the lowers are
interlaced strands of pigskin that al-
loW plenty of freedom and foot com-
fort. They're smooth and staid
enough for wear from early spring
right through the summer into late
faJ. And they'll last too. They
avoid the impracticable moccasin
style yellow shoes of last spring that
burst the toe stitches after several
weeks wear, in that there is no stitch-
ing to burst.
Another popular number will be
the Norwegian brogues that came
this fall and failed to achieve any
notable success. But this spring, we
predict, will really see the Norwe-
gian brogues getting stepped on, and
by.more than a few Michigan men.
These smoothies are almost com-
pletely new in design. They have an
extra thick gum or rubber sole that

The white-shoe boys wno also want

A smart shoe can set off a mediocre
outfit .and make it look good. There-

care needed in the selection, of foot-
wear. The three shoes described
above will go well with anything you
can think of. Saddle shoes just go,

Collegians on 20 eastern campuses
pay more than $1,000,00 annually for
their 'haberdashery, reports a well
known hatter, and such expenditures
will almost double after the new
Spring fashions sweep the nation.
Current favorite of the college man
is the well known hat with a snap
brim, kicked up in back. This type
has kept -its popularity since the early
days following the now legendary
stock market crash of '29.
Light weight felts for Spring and
Summer wear have been appearing
with narrow welt edges and ribbon
bands. The very light weight models
go to the extremes with narrow tubu-
lar bands and raw edges.
Colors Are Gay
Spring colors tend to be gay, pre-
dominently dusty green, dusty tan,
dusty gray and dusty blue. Brighter
colors such as blue green. light tan
and light gray are being used to satis-
fy the ego of those collegians who
want to stand out.

Tyrolea . For Sport Only
Tyrolean models and porkpies, al-
though very popular in the fall, have
lost ground. Spring will find them
being used for spectator sports by the
well dressed collegian.
The vexing problem of feather size
is disturbing many collegians. The

ger and better the feather, the hand-

quirk of character which makes him
go to any means in order to escape
wearing a hat that looks new.

We think only of fussy old bache-

them, and therefore for us hand-
made brogans take on a context of
staid and ugly comfortableness. You
can find shoes like this in the local
shoe shops, shoes whose only reason
for being is that they are guaranteed
not to rub, not to bite, not to harm
the gouty foot in any way.
Solid Leather Construction '
But there are youthful styles too-

crepe soles, the latest laceless styles.
All are made of solid leather. with
no linen lining to wear out, made to
last the proverbial lifetime.
Both Men's And Women's
Both men's and women's fashions
repeat themselves. There are varia-
tions and improvements, of course,
but nmiy of the essnt iAl features
of the style will turn up periodically.
Sometimes the cycle takes 25 years to
repeat-sometimes only five.
The covert cloth type coat which
is so popular this spring was also in
fa-vor 100 years ago, when it was
worn by English country gentlemen.
About 25 years ago it made its ap-
pearance as a smart town topcoat in

Today the covert cloth coat in trim
tailored models either fly front and
single breasted or double breasted is
one of the smartest coats for town
wear. It is also suitable for country
wear when cut on country lines.
Hats Are- Typed
Together with the production of
new and far handsomer hats than
ever before, hatters are beginning a
campaign to educate the buyer in the
kind of hat he should buy Every
man's face is different and, ideally,
every man should have a different
hat to suit his face.
Individual measurements being im-
possible, the industry has found for
the majority of faces that a brim two
and three eighths inches wide is sat-
isfactory. A rule always to be kept
somer the hat. However, other auth-
orities claim that the giant size
feathers in current popularity are- a
passing fad, for the male of the species
will soon realize how dangerously
close he is making his chapeau look
like a woman's when he sticks a
feathered monstrosity into it and cells
