Treatment And Colors
Daring Styles Built
With the modern emphasis on well-
shod feet, many novel and revolu-
tionary styles have been developed
this year to compete with the old
stand-bys, some of which have been
given slightly different treatment.
Since trouser bottoms seem to have
been raised one or two inches gener-
ally and colors and patterns in hosiery
have been stepped up, shoes must now
be selected with a great deal more
care, so that they jibe. Thus differ-
eiit outfits now require different col
ors and styles in shoes,
Always smart for ordinary town
wear is the popular brogue styled
shoe. Appearing in black, various
shades of brown and tan, this shoe
,is first in the wardrobes of college
New Stitching Shown
New stitchings and features are
found this year in this shoe which is
built along heavy lines. Popular here
is the blucher type, having a capped
tip with side pieces extending beyond
the lacing. They can be bought in
straight or wing tip toe styles and in
various leathers.
The Norwegian shoe, usually found
in browns, has received a good play
this year and is worn on sports occa-
sions. It completes a tweed country
outfit handsomely. Stitching on the
toe of this model is done in a half
For formal wear we find the old
standbys still in vogue. Either patent

prospects are best. New ideas range
from beach shoes to the much dis-
cussed chukkas and winter sports
Chukkas Coming In
Chukkas are catching hold on cam-
pus no t among a few hardy souls.
This new type seems to be a com-
promise between old-fashioned high-
tops and oxfords. They reach the
ankle, and usually are found in un-
finished leathers
A holdover from last season is the
side laced peasant type shoe, favored
most in a natural pigskin color. Al-
though strictly a sports shoe, soles
hee are in leather.
Novel fashion quirks are sfound in
okford types sporting monk fronts
and extended tongue flaps. The
monk front is, of course, the buckle
fastened type.
For after skiing, the young man
may wear the new sheepskin lined
slide fastener boots, having practical-
ly no heels at all. Or if he is lazy,

pers, very warm even though a trifle

to go south for the winter will appre-
ciate the inclusion of a sprightly pair

stocking. They come in wood soles
or rubber.

Shirts Are Poteinial Presents
For Roommate, Pal, Or Father

..E te aic~e q


With Christmas just around the
corner, men's shirts assume a new
role-that of the potential Christ-
mas gift for room-mate, father, bro-
ther, pal or boy-friend-note well,
ladies. Colors, patterns, materials
and styles come in for, greater at-
tention than ever at this time of
year, and they are often the sub-
ject of considerable thought, and
equally often the subject of con-
siderable lack of thought.
The first point to consider in pick-
ing out a gift-shirt is not color,
style, material or pattern. Size is
all-important. No man likes to re-
turn a gift, and size 14 collars don't
do very well on size 16 necks. Doting
aunts and sisters might do well to
remember that.
Wide Material Variety
*This year the shirt has blossomed
forth in a wide variety of interest-
ing styles and materials. The French
cuff-long a'n old reliable-seems
to be returning to favor, and with
it are coming the cuff links. Button-
down collars are maintaining their
old place of popularity, especially on
colored shirts intended for sports
wear. And the tab collar is staging
an uphill fight for new recognition.
Soft brushed cottons and wools,
for all-around and outdoor wear re-
spectively, are the most outstanding
of the materials . These are not only
comfortable and stylish, but they
are made up in materials which are
beautifully patterned and cut along
the latest lines.
The plain white shirt, in Oxford
cloth, is one number on which it is
difficult to go wrong. White is the
all-purpose color in the shirt field,
as good for sports wear as for church
attendance. It can be worn with
any color or shade of ties or coat
or complexion or hair. In short, one
will hardly ever go wrong giving a
white shirt or wearing one.
Herringbone Striking
The most outstanding of the col-
ored shirts are the numbers cut from
a herringbone or diagonal stripe fab-
ric, usually a light, almost pastel
shade mixed in with white. Button-
down collars seem to be dominant
on these shirts, and they are certain
to prove very popular.
Darker and brighter colors seems
to be the rule for the brushed wool
shirts for outdoor wear. Not quite
as dark as the popular numbers of
a few years ago, these shirts are in-
jecting some heaven-sent greeds,
blues, and browns into men's ward-
robes. But steer clear of these un-
less the prospective recipient of your
Christmas gift is the pipe-smoking,
out-of-doors type, gals.

The white-on-white patterned ma-
terials, seem destined for consider-
able popularity this winter, giving.
vent to a man's desire for a little life
in his more conservative shirts for
While on the subject of shirts, it
might not be amiss to call atten-
tion to the new cuff links, ,since
French cuffs are here.' Colors of
stones are lighter in the metal links,
making them more attractive. But
the prize of all prizes among cuff
links is the leather-covered. Avail-
able in a variety of shapes, this num-
ber is attractive, destined for popu-
larity and the answer to a demand
for something new in the field of the
one-piece link.

14 karat gold plate. Monogrammed
links, in keeping with the vogue in
this direction, are also enjoying a
certain popularity.
The bat-wing tie, in both black
and white, is still as popular as ever
although it has become largely sup-
planted in recent seasons' by the
classier pointed type. Socks for for-
mal wear should-"be ultra-conserva-
tive, being of plain black silk lack-
ing even the ostentation of a clock.
The single-breasted, fly-front,
midnight blue Chesterfield is the
most popular top coat for evening
wear although all types of Chester-
fields are in perfect style. Red and
white carnations, either real or artir
ficial, are also in perfect order for
evening dress as are white handker-
chiefs. In answer to the long dis-
cussed question of whether it is pro-
per or not to wear both handkerchief
and flower, certain noted New York
tailors have declared that one can
do as they choose for both are per-
fectly correct.
Patent leather shoes have also in-
creased in popularity over former
years although plain black shoes are
still acceptable for all occasions.
Chapeaux have also changed little
since last year with the flexible opera
Sat still being the most stylish piece
of headgear for formal wear. The
derby has become outmoded and has
been replaced by .the midnight blue
and black homburg. In recent weeks
the black Lord's hat has also ap-
peared on numerous occasions.

If the gentleman already has a watch
it is perfectly proper to buy him one
of these handsome straps for it.
For evening wear, some men pre-
fer pocket watches. Here we suggest
a finde gold watch with a gold bow
linked watch chain. Pocket watches
as well as wrist watches, can be se-
cured in silver and with different
shaped tops: round, crown and flat.
