ing in indecision before your
A few rules regarding the differ-
ence between "black tie" and
"white tie" affairs will give you
the assurance that is a natural ac-
companiment of good grooming.
Semi-formal wear usually de-
notes informal functions after 6
p.m. This includes weddings, din-
ners, dances or parties that specify
"black tie."
Jackets Favor Blue
Choose the single-breasted,
shawl collar jacket. Midnight blue
is favorite with most well turned-
out men today. Tuxedo trousers
should match the jacket, with the
stripe down the side matching the
jacket facing.
Instead of a waistcoat, a cum-
mberbund is often worn to add+
smartness to a single-breasted tux-
edo. Wear a color to match the
tie, although fancy cummerbunds
are also proper.,
The semi-formal shirt has a
soft ,.pleated bosom, with an at-
tached collar for greater comfort.
With it wear a black or midnight
blue bow necktie in the longer,
narrower shape.
Hats of Homburg
Accessories call for black ribbed
pr plain hose, black patent or calf
oxford shoes and white or gray
mocha gloves. The hat is black,
dark gray or midnight blue, in'
homburg or snap brim style.
To complete this semi-formal
attire in fine style, choose an outer
coat of plain blue, black or dark9
White-Tie Events
Banquets, the opera, cotillions
and other events specifying white
tie call for strictly formal wear.
The jacket choice is a tail coat
of midnight blue or black, while.
the waistcoat is of white pique and
can be either single or double-
Trousers match the jacket, with'
braid to match jacket lapels.'
Showing beneath are black-ribbed
or plain hose and shoes of black
patent leather or pump style.
Pique for Tie, Shirt
Wear a white pique bow tie on
a pique-bosomed shirt. Wing col-
lar and French cuffs are "musts"
on the formal shirt.
Black is the color choice in hats,
whtile gloves favor white. The hat
is of silk, and gloves of white kidj
or mocha.
Accessories include white muf-
fler, boutonniere and white hand-
kerchief. Pearl studs and cuff links
are the jewelry worn, while the key.
chain is optional.
Finish off with an outer coat of
black or dark blue and you'll have
a formal ensemble in the finest
"white tie" tradition.

Time for Repairs
Well before the ceremony he
should check it over for repairs
and additions. Suits for winter and
summer may need cleaning or
seams sewed up. (Immediately'
after the wedding is not a good
time to put your new bride to work
on fixing up your clothes!)
Depending on the location of
the new home, the groom may
want to add some new sports shirts
and sweaters to his wardrobe.
Whatever the style of the wed-
ding, the groom can retain his
"Prince Charming" appearance
until his golden anniversary if he
is always mindful of his wardrobe.

Men have a wide choice of
fashionable jewelry accessories for
cuff, tie and neckwear.
The perennially favorite novel-
ty tie-clasps and cuff-links are
sharing the -spotlight this year
with plainer styles made narrow-
er and smaller to match current
fashion's narrower ties.
Cuff-links seem to be becoming
more and more restricted to for-
mal dress as the French-cuffed
shirt goes out of style for sports
Collar-buttons, collar-stays and

tie studs are holding their own.
The tie stays' popularity lies in
the fact that it keeps the tie from
slipping up out of place. With an
ordinary clasp, the tie pulls up
when the head is thrown back.
The stay eliminates this incon-
Clasps and links in simple geo-
metrical forms are much in evi-
dence this spring. Frequently seen
are rectangles and squares set
with pearls, other gems or ini-
tials. Many are styled in a con-
trast of plain and polished metal.
Still popular are the varied nov-
elty styles with personal inter-
est appeal. Cuff-links and tie
clasps come in the shape'of a
mariner's compass or sailboat for
the sea-minded, various models of
cars for the automobile-minded
and music symbols and instru-
ments for the music-minded.
Hobbies are also given a place
as clasps and links sproutstamps,
coins, or sports equipment.
Appearing occasionally are cuff-
links with a matching ring as well
as matching tie clasps.
Settings include leather and
wool as well as the traditional
gold silver and = gems.
