Clothes Styles
Ann Arbor Called Fashion
Center Of State; 2,000
FreshmanBring Styles
By ALBERT P. BLAUSTEIN
Ann Arbor has rightly been termed
by many noted designers and cloth-
iers as the "fashion center of Michi-
gan." Here we find a large number
of students, for the most part par-
ticular about their dress, who set the
pace for numerous style standards
throughout the state.
Each year into this city pour more
than 2,000 freshmen from all over
the country bringing with them a
vast assortment of styles ranging
from that of the "rah-rah" to that
of, the staid conservative. When they
reach the Univeristy, however, they
learn about the style followed by the
undergraduate and graduate here
and most of them duplicate it. The
style by the way is not a limiting
one which stifles the individual per-
sonality but rather one which keeps
the individual within the extremes
and saves him from the criticism of
others in respect to dress.
'Joe College' Is Through
The days of "Joe College" are over
and unfortunate are those freshmen
who fail to realize that fact. No long-
er do students wear purple shirts
with green trousers on the campus
as this type of costume, according to
most, went out with the Wall Street
crash. But is must be remembered
that a, dark, drape-modeled suit ac-
companying a white shirt and black
tie is also not wanted.
When new comers arrive at Michi-
gan they will be given the opportun-
ity to observe on all sides what the
mid-west college man wears. No
doubt, if he's from the east, he'll find
them less fashy than those worn at
Princeton and possibly, if he's from
the praire states, he'll find them less
staid.
Clothes here, as in every other
place vary with the year and the new
fall fashions will a"ect Ann Arbor
as well as New York and Hollywood.
What should be avoided, however, in
an attempt to keep up with "the
latest," is going to the extremes for
few, if any of us, wear all of the
newest models.
'Loud' Clothes
In 'the way of "loud" clothes it is
only fair to mention the fact that
all pants (shorts are not being con-
sidered) do not have to be worn be-
low the ankles-but they do have to
be below the knees. The shirts may
be of various "noticeable" colors but
they also must not be too different,
all the colors of the rainbow do not
mix well on one shirt.
There was an old song once in
whichrsome college man told the
world what he has learned in an in-
stitution of higher education. It seem-
ed that one of the habits he acquired
was "goin' around without a hat"-
a habit which many feel is charac-
teristic of most boys at school.
That is not quite true in Ann Arbor
for, although a good many students
go without hats, an equally large
number wear them. Hats this fall will
be broader brimmed than those of
the past, most of them having a
brim from two and one-fourth to
two and five-eighths inches wide.
Men's headgear will be mostly in the
browns and greens with or without
a contrasting band.
Suits Carefully Chosen
Suits must be carefully chosen so
that they will neither look to "young-
ish" nor give the college men the air

of a middle-aged person. Tweeds will
be worn a great deal especially in
Shetland colors and thin chalk stripes
will be fashionable in the more con-
servative models.
Both the reversible and conver-
tible topcoat are sure to be very popu-
lar this year, as they combine utility
and looks. The former usually has
one side made of some material to
protect the suit during rain while the
latter has a removable lining enab-
ling it to be used as a topcoat in the
fall and an overcoat in the winter.
As usual the oxford shirts will be
the most fashionable for everyday
wear with the wide-spread collar re-
placing the button down collar for
the most part.
For Footwear
For footwear men will want the
Scotch grain brogues for classes and
perhaps two or three other pairs of
brown or black shoes for dates and.
special occasions. Moccasins have be-
come increasing important for the
campus during the past year with the
decline of- saddle shoes.
Socks, contrary to popular belief,
are worn with garters by most males
at school and this fall the most fash-
ionable will be the soft colored shet-
land type;of various solid colors.
The fault of too many freshmen
is that they have preconceived no-
tions of how a college student dress-
es and clothes himself accordingly.
The best advice we can give is find
out what is really worn before buying
