Well-Dressed College Me
Raglan Sleeve Is Favorite;
Blue, Brown Combined
By B. JENSWOLD
In the spring a young man's fancy
lightly turns to thoughts of-swing-
ing into a new, light coat. And to-
day, as never before, are there a host
of fabrics and' styles from which
Practical to the nth degree is the
worsted gabardine raincoat with the
removable lining. Blustery days are
yet to come before spring is here to
stay, so the farsighted young man
will not overlook that item of lining.'
Another feature of this coat is the
military collar, so prevalent in semi-
sports clothes these days. And the
rugged individualist will give special
attention to models with slanting
pockets, which, by the way, do seem
to add inches to one's height.
For April's showers, too, are the
popular reversibles, in corduroy or
covert cloth, and the coats of water-
proofed materials. The length is
finger-top or knee.
Enough of bad weather attire.
When the sun is pouring down out
of the blue and it is still weeks to
summer weather, the student needs,
a cool and comfortable coat for class-
es. Better than ever this spring is the
model with lines of stitching around
the hem and sleeves. This is gen-
erally seen on fly-front coats, with
either the set-in or raglan sleeves.
Forthe gentleman who desires to
give the illusory effect of height, the
above-the-knee sports coat is at his
disposal. Corduroy in some shade of
tan will compliment any wardrobe.
Colors run extensively to that com-
bination of combinations, blue and
brown. This trend manifests itself in
herringbone and plaids and mottled
fabrics, and it solves so many prob-
lems in matching. Beige, the indi-
spensible, is still here, and shades of
dull or light green and rust; and, as
of always, gray, blue, and brown.
For those moments when studying
is put out of his mind and pleasure
is given preference, a herringbone
topcoat with peaked lapels and the
ever-present fly-front answers the
need of the college man. The:slight
shapliness of this coat is a pleasant
change from the loose build of the
That too-padded look about the
shoulders is out. Naturalness and
flattering lines, with ease afforded
by short lengths, are the measures of
a smart coat this season. Over sweat-
ers and unpadded shoulders the rag-
lan sleeve is perfection, and with the
slightly built out shoulders, the fit is
most comfortable with set-in sleeves.
The selection is large, and the rules
are simple, so a word to the wise col-
legian ought to be sufficient.
Madras To Be Popular
Light-weight madras is back in
circulation for shirts this spring, made
up usually in stripes, which looks
extremely well with solid color or
small all-over patterned ties.

In the spring a young man's fancys
turns to sweaters-anything to get
out of a suit coat. If you don't happen
to be fortunate enough to own an
M sweater, there are several other
equally fashionable styles appropriate
for campus wear.
Before the weather becomes real-
ly warm, long-sleeved sweaters, of
course are the vogue. An especially
popular model for spring in a soft
green is a long-sleeved V-neck sweat-
er with cable-stitch trimming. Crew
or boat-necks as they are sometimes
called, rival the V-neck for first place
in sweater fashions. Round necks are
on the way out.
Sleeveless sweaters in all colors and
knits are on the upward trend. Not
only are they cool but they look
very attractive over solid-colored
shirts. We were particularly impressed
by a wide-weave white one over a

wool and soft cashmeres come to the
fore. The warm coat sweaters so
prominent in the winter are used
very sparingly in the summer.
Pastels Are Shown
So much for the Army. On leave
or in civilian clothes men can let their
fancy run free as far as their socks
go, for they are being shown in every
possible length, color and weight.
Popular for summer are the cotton
socks in pastel shades. Six by three

Plastic Buttons PreferredI
For Suits And Topcoats
Now the question of buttons. You
wouldn't think there was much that
could be written on buttons, would
you? They're so little.
But we can put in a plea against
leather buttons? We've heard vehe-
ment complaints against them-they
pull off too easily and the loops break
and cannot be replaced. So take this
advice-leather for luggage, but not
