Women DO notice what men
on campus wear.
And their comment varies from
a shrug of the shoulders and "They
really look well-dressed most of
the time," to the earnest criticism,
"they could take much better care
of their clothes."
A fashion-conscious reporter re-
cently made a survey to find out
what coeds liked or didn't like
about the outward appearance of
the opposite sex.
The majority voted for crew
cuts, crewnecks, trenchcoats and
tailored shirts with button-down
collars and sports jackets.
Said one coed: "We copy men's
fashions because we like them. Our
blazer shirts and coats are all
steals."
In considering the cut of a popu-
lar men's style coat, coeds were en-
thusiastic and complimentary. Re-
marked one: - "The new natural
shoulder line does a lot toward
furthering a good appearance."
Ivy League ..
Others commented on the "way
the ivy-league look has invaded
campus." Things like beltedbacked
pants and 'rep' ties, they declare,
arer't restricted to the Eastern-
campuses any more.
Other women polled had more
practical thoughts. They spoke of
channeling men's fashions into
styles for themselves. A conver-
styles for themselves. Conversion
favorites included such formerly
masculine possessions as striped
shirts and sport coats.
Opinion was divided as to the
proper attire for the class-bound
male. Some coeds prefer to let him
lounge comfortably in the casual
dress. Others frown and declare
that such practices led to sloppy
clothes and advocate the clean-cut
tailored look of sport coat and tie.
And, several emphasized "when
men do wear sport coats, the least
they could do is to change out of
those wrinkled khakis!"
Coeds admitted that the 'col-
legiate looking crewnecked sweater
man "looks good," but they loudly
damned the "way men keep those
sweaters."
Stretched Sweaters . .
Commented one: "I hate to see
what was a nice sweater get
stretched out of shape when a
man makes it a habit to reach
through the neck to a pack of
cigarettes in his pocket."
Others agreed that on the whole
"men don't seem to care what hap-
pens to their clothes or how they
look."
Discussion of bare head versus
some sort of covering drew varied:
response from the female critics.
Brain coverings, they note, range
from the stately homburg to the
continental beret.
Some coeds admitted that a
homburg-wearing date 'impress-
ed" them. Others are vehement in
insisting that their boyfriends
wear no hats.
Generally the woien agreed
that the physical appearance of
the man largely determined what
type of clothing he looked best in.
"For instance," one commented,
It takes a tall, slender man to
look good in a tweed model coat
with velvet collar. On some other
type that coat would lose all of its
style."
-Mixed Style . .
Great criticism was pointed at
the general non-conformity of
University men to good taste. "If
you considered each piece of a
man's outfit separately, it would
be fine," one said, but she com-
plained, "when you have a tweed
jacket, with a plaid shirt and
striped tie, it's just too much."
Some women were agreed in
their approval of the scarcity of

blue jeaned figures on campus.
Khaki pants, they say, are "much
better, even if they look like they
have been slept in."
And of course there were a few
of the more reserved and blase'
coeds who listened to their friends
on the subject of the clothed male
and finally said with disgust:
"How can you rattle on so? I don't
even notice the way men dress.
