Although women are the wear-
ers of the "new look" today, for-
merly men were the ones who
sported the laces and frills in the
various "new looks" that appeared.
In the early days, when America
was just getting a start toward
breaking away from England,
men's shirts were masterpieces of
artistic sewing with ruffles flaring
below jeweled velvet coats. Color-
ful three-cornered hats and pol-
ished silver shoe-buckles were high
fashion at this time.
After the Revolution there
was a sharp trend to do away
with the clothing of the mother
country, and the American gen-
tleman was soon decked out in
the first of many "new looks"
to follow.
Top hats, silk neck scarves and
white waistcoats, decorated with
a huge gold chain were essentials
for the well dressed man. He wore
a coat with widely flared collar
and lapels ending below the waist
and tight fitting trousers with a
loop fitted over patent leather
As the nation changed, so did
the male attire. From the Civil
War through the "Gay 90's"
trousers were wider and shirts
had high stiff collars. Ties were
tied in huge knots and tacked
down by a gleaming pin. Coats
were still cut long, but were be-
ginning to assume the double
breasted effect of today.
Came World War I and another
new look"-mostly through ne-
cessity. Tailors and clothing man-
ufacturers began cutting dowjb
materials in suits. Suit coats be-
came short and skimpy, and trous-
er legs were tightened up again
without cuffs.
After the Armistice, the "flap-
pers" came into their own. This
"new look" featured wide pants,
caps, turtle-neck sweaters and
shaggy fur coats in the winter.
Checks and plaids were the
thing, and the flashier the ma-
terial the better.
This did not last long, and men
turned to clothing much like that
of today, with but a short inter-
ruption in the recent "zootsuit"
era. This style was partly a re-

turn to the "Gay 90's". Coats were
long and draped to the extreme,
and trouser cuffs were tight.
Hats were huge, and the
"zoot-suiter" was well dressed
only when his shoes came to a
needle point, and his heavy
watch chain dangled below his
Men's fashions of today are
conservative, but the spirit of re-
bellion is simmering again, as the
"bold look" appears on the hori-
zon. Will today's "bold look" be'I
