Loud Colors Apparent
In the field of design, loud colors
are coming back into the fold again
after a fashionable absence of about
two years. This season, though, the
bright suits are seen mostly in solid-
color models. But there are still some -
patterns which resemble the prover-
bial Christmas necktie, and which,
oddly enough, most men like.
Subdued stripes promise to be ex-
ceedingly popular in 1940, brown
and white topping the list. Many of ---
the more luxurious models have belts
on the top-piece, so take into con-
sideration this warning: if the male
for whom you are buying these pa-
jamas is of the type who wears his
shirt tucked under his pants (pa-
jama pants, of course) it is a seriousr".s
offense to give him a pair whose shirt
is adorned with a sash or belt.
Unusual and novel patterns abound
