Males Favor Wearing Aparel
For Their Christmas Presents

Christmas Tie
Choice Often
Makes Trouble
Attention To Colbr Should
Make Neckwear Choice
SimplerThan In Past
The thought of the month of De-
cember nearly always makes most
men shudder as pictures of proverb-
ially garish Christmas ties come into
their minds-and often fond aunts,
wives and sisters make these pic-
tures into reality by well meant and
ill-chosen gifts of neckwear.
There is seldom any legitimate ex-
cuse for this sort of gift unless one
is color-blind, and this year, espec-
ially, there are many, many taste-
fully designed and patterned ties
from which to choose. Every color,
pattern and style of neckwear imag-
inable is available for givers of
Christmas ties.
Knitted Silk Popular
Rising in popularity among the
college-age group, is the knitted silk
tie. This tie is available in a wide
variety of colors, plain and in stripes.
The plain colors, however, with the
ever-faithful number carrying the
burden of the attack, should prove
to be more fashionable than their
striped cousins.
The foulard is still "tops" in the
neckwear line, being available in
many shades and designs. One rea-
son for this tie's popularity seems to
lie in the ease with which it can be
formed into a neat, tight knot.
Wool challis, coming in hunting
patterns and more conservative mo-
tifs, are destined to be very popular
as Christmas gifts this year. It
would be difficult to go wrong on
one of these, as they come in taste-
fully chosen patterns and colors, and
they do not wrinkle easily.
Colors Problematical
The color of a gift tie always pre-
sents a problem. The prospective
giver-note well, ladies-should pay
particular attention to the color of
clothes generally worn by the pros-.
pective recipient and choose the tie
correspondingly.. By the way, blue
IS being worn with brown this year
-and it looks good, too.
A word of 'warning, though-steer
clear of loud patterns and bright
colors unless you are well acquainted
with the -tastes of the lad to whom
you intend to give the tie. And if
worst comes to worst, you can always
give him an order on one of the
c( mpus shops and'let him pick out
his own neckwear.

Various Types Of Glove-Wear
Suggested As Presents For Men
Pigskin And Cashmeres
Mentioned As Favorites
Of Well-Dressed Males
Except for a few afternoons at the
football games we haven't had much
use for gloves. On cold afternoons
in the bowl it sin't usually gloves men
think of to keep them warm. Anyway,
our November guest has been visit-
ing us and by the warm, clear, sunny
days we're having it will probably be
a long time before he leaves.
If you want to provide for the male
who, may be surprised by a sudden
departure of the guest and help him
protect his hands, a pair of warm
gloves will be just the thing. There -
are several types to buy for the selec-

For the Michigan man with college

too much?"
Atwood McAndrew, '42: "I would
say that the ideal Christmas gift is
money, because with money a per-

to wear and not the ties and socks
someone else likes."

Edward Evancourt, '41: "As far as
I'm concerned the ideal Christmas
present would be a complete outline
of Ec. 101 and 102."
Appreciate Handkerchiefs
As Presents For Christmas

Plaid Garters Suggested
As Ideal Christmas Gift
The great variety of patterns and
colors in garters this year make this
item a suitable gift, with bright new
plaids dominating the scene.
Wrapped in Christmas packages,
they make an easy gift to select, and
are especially desired this year, since
college men seem to be giving these
much abused articles of clothing a
new lease on life.
