Economy of material might be one
reason why this square-shouldered,
brave little model is so important in
the "defense" trend which dominates
the fashion world, today. But it isn't
the most.important reason.
It's a "Churchill" coat, and that
answers the question of why it looked
so familiar to you, doesn't it? Well,
maybe it doesn't, and in that case
we'll just up and tell you that it's
an exact copy of the one which Win-
ston Churchill wore on the occasion
of his historic meeting With Franklin
D.; the same one which you saw over
and over again in the newsreels.
e It's bulky and warm, and what's
more, it's cute. It has huge seamen's
pockets for ,everything from an eco-
nomic book to an extra screw driver.
Finally, it has big gold buttons that
march down the front. We think it's
got it!
