MEN'S COLLEGE FASHIONS: Indefinable

March 28, 1957

THE MICHIGAN DAILY

HAIRSTYLES: smooth and sculpti

Exceptions--f
By DAVID KESSEL
What men wear on college cam-
puses scarcely falls into define-
able style since most men care
little about clothing as long as it
serves to keep out the cold and
rain.
But, fortunately ,for clothing
slesmen, there are fad lovers,
certain nationally circulated mag-
azines and a hard core of self-
styled men who, it is thought, set
college styles by whim, design or
accident.
The style-setter at work is a
sight to behold. One particularly
illustrative example was seen in
Boston during the fall cap season
when an enterprising but other-
wise illiterate individual wore a
blue cap with a red feather to a
Harvard tea one day.
Feat her Caps
By night the entir3 yard was a
sea of blue caps with red feath-
ers, and no bird could perch in
safety if it had so much as a
smidge of red in its tail.
Winter brought the Texas Ran-
ger boot fad to stanford, a small
f midwestern college located in
California.
Although the exact origin of
this somevhat peculiar fashion is
unknown, by February it was im-

:ad lovers and individualists

possible, as one writer described
the scene, to walk from the Infir-
mary to the Dean's Office with-
out seeing more Texas boots than
greeted Pancho Villa during the
more adventure-filled days of his
lawless career.
Ann Arbor Styles
At Ann Arbor, students wear
nondescript clothing, except for
an occasional dude who keeps his
blue blazer with brass buttons at
hand. Mostly what is seen can
perhaps best be described as an
unpressed collection of khaki
pants in assorted colors, faded
raincoats, scuffed shoes, ragged
scarfs, and crumpled handker-
chiefs.
Add to this an occasional tat-
tered umbrella, torn brief-case,
and mildewed hat and you have
the faculty costume.
Even at so-called formal dances,
the number of really elegant plaid
dinner jackets with red and black
sash and tie is statistically small,
even with random samples.
Double-Breasted Suit
The blue double-breasted suit,
once exclusively relegated to the
gangster set is now making a
great comeback. It is reported
that the interested observer cank
see more of these unsightly spec-

tacles at a dormitory dance than
were noted at Al Capone's funeral.
However dismaying the picture
of a full room of blue double-
breasted suits slightly fidgiting
under the critical gaze of a full
length mirror; it is nothing com-
pared with the revolting sight of a
solid corps of men marching off
to class wearing coats held to-
gether by little wood pegs firmly
attached to little loops of rope
stranded from carefully selected
and aged hemp.
Force of Public Opinion
But gradually the public is be-
ing button-holed into buying
these contraptions and, in some
circles, if you are not securely
tied into your coat, you walk the
streets accompanied by the scorn-
ful gazes of looped and hooked
friends.
Most promising trend in this
area is knickers. Although this
costume has not yet achieved th
very practical and comfortable
popularity it deserves, it is hoped
that, during the next few years,
the so-called lunatic fringe of
campus style-setters will continue
to "push" knickers so that our
streets will someday see a profu-
sion of them, together with knee
socks in pastel shades, grey and
black.

By ELEANOR GOLDBERG
Spring hairdos are undergoing
the first radical change in several
years, as smooth, sculptured styles
overtake the "shaggy" effect to
make their striking appearance.
The "long hair done up" styles
are gradually losing popularity as
coeds flock to beauty shops or to
their roommates with the "nearest
pair of scissors." French rolls,
pony tails, buns and page boys are
rapidly being "snipped off."
Hair will take ors a "chiffony"
twisting look which is casual and
wavy, yet elegant. A new coiffure,
called a variety of names, includ-
ing "Cabochon," "Big Dipper"
and "'Jeunesse" brings back a style
of the late twenties with innova-
tions.
Wide soft waves will give the
face a smooth sculptured appear-!
ance. The hair is brushed back
from the brow, dips over the
cheeks and is turned up, rathert
than under, in the back.
'Sculptured' Look
Either bangs or a low side part

c
shows neatly around the face and
across the back of the head. t-
This hairdo is a complete re- t
versal of the high front, short s
back "Italian." It has been some t
time since so novel a step in hair- s

may pe worn. Women with very
regular features may choose to
brush it straight back with no
part.
The style which is being adopted

rapidly by movie stars and fash-
ion models, as well as women of
fashion, creates a smooth crown,
good for the new hats which cup
the head with a deep effect. Hair
