Use Tape on Hat
For a "head start" on grooming,
always put your hat away on a
flat surface rather than on a
hook. A soft brush or cloth is the
best 'aid in cleaning your hat and
you can keep the hatband from
staining by putting Scotch tape
inside the sweatband.
Too much heat can fuse plastic
collar stays, so remove them be-
fore having a shirt laundered. An-
other trick that will make your
shirts last longer is to turn the
collar down before tying your tie,
rather than after.
For space-saving as well as shoe-
saving, try stuffing your shoes
with socks when you're packing
for that long-awaited vacation.
The socks will serve the same pur-
pose as shoe trees.
Give Shoes a Rest
Shoes, like suits, will also last
longer if you give them a rest be-
tween wearings. Don't wait until
they're scuffed to polish them,
shining new shoes before wearing
will help preserve the surface.
You'll seldom have to take an
iron to your ties if you hang them
on a rack and let the wrinkles
fall out. When removing your tie,'

Plaid, Paisley, Solid Colored Vests Gain Popularity
Although the days of the double-
breasted suit, matching vest, and
long watch chains are gone, vests
in bright colors and plaids are
high in fashion.
Popular for dress as well as
sportswear, vests come in bright
plaids, stripes or solid colors. Dark
green and red are favorite solid
colors while navy, red or yellow
dominate the plaids.

vest. With a solid color background
and back, it features small brightly
colored specks or figures on the
R4eversible vests give the wearer
two styles in one. One side may
be a bold plaid while the reverse
is a more conservative solid color.

Vests with leather trim on pock-
ets increase the wearability, and
add the unusual.
The strictly tailored vests have
a belt across the back to adjust
the tightness in front and give
the neat appearance.
Last year's four-pocketed vests
have disappeared as the newer
two-pocketed styles take over. The
pointed fronts have also given
way to a straight front to add the
The box cloth waistcoat with
lapels and brass buttons is a new
variation of the vest from England.
This gives the 'country gentleman'
look to any wearer.
