NEW UNIFORMS RESULT
FROM WREXPERIENCES
Long Trousers Replace Present Mod-
el; Shoes and Boots Also Have
Changed Appearance
(From Stars and Stripes, France)
Your talior announces his winter
opening. Incidentally, he has a few
new creations for summer and fall.
Your tailor, otherwise the Q. M.,
has _ got a line-not of talk, but of
wearables-that is the result of sev-
eral months' experience showing just
what happens to army clothes in the
trenches, behind the lines, and in the
wear and tear of toil in the bases.
Every alteration and new issue an-
nounced (and there are several) is
the outcome of a defect in wearing
qualities and bodily comfort or a
worth-while economy that did not be-
come apparent until the test of war
had disclosed it. And thereby stands
proved the slogan of the army's tail-
or: "Your comfort and welfare is our
first concern." Hence, the new blous-
es, new trousers, new gloves, new
shoes, new boots and all the rest.
To begin at the bottom, the new
shoe, of which you have already
heard, was evolved after a winter's
use of the old shoe in trench warfare
proved that it lacked the qualities of
wear and waterproofness that a good
shoe should have. It had stood up
beautifully in sham battles in the
States, with dry ground underfoot,
but over here it was different.
New Shoe's Service Record
Briefly, the new shoe's service rec-
ord is this: Wider last, higher instep,
more toe room (allowing the wearing
of additional socks), toe plate pro-
jecting up over end of sole, heavier
heel plate, sole attached in manner
to prevent leaks, absolutely water-
proof. It has been tested at an A.
E. F. orthopedic hospital, and a fine
report has been given it. It is esti-
mated that the new issue will reduce
shoe replacements not less than 50
per cent.
Then there is a new boot. The boot
we had was thought to be excellent,
but trench use showed it wasn't the
perfect thing desired.
The new boot will be absolutely wa-
terproof inside and out-for perspira-
tion can easily spoil the lining and
ultimately rot the whole fabric un-
less the lining itself is proofed.
There is also an ankle strap which
wil secure the boot to the foot, so
that no footwear can be lost through
getting caught in the mud and suck-
ing free of the unsuspecting wearer's
leg.
In the hip boot the seam above the
knee has been changed to the back,
so as to do away with the discomforts
of chafing.
The most radical change is in the
new breeches.
The funny thing about the new
breeches is that they aren't breeches.
They're trousers - plain, ordinary,
common long trousers-almost The
end where the foot comes out is nar-
rower, for one thing. The hips and
knees are full. The regulation spiral
leggin will be worn over them just as
it is worn over the present issue.
The new trousers will obviate all
the defects of their predecessors -
tight lacing, impaired circulation,
easily chilled feet.
Heavier Cloth for Blouses
The new blouse will be of better
appearance and shape and will bring
the wearer more warmth and com-
fort. The cloth of both blouse and

trousers will be 20 ounce instead of
16 ounce wool. The pockets of the
blouse will be cut-in instead of patch.
The woolen gloves you wear next
winter will have such long wrists
that the wristlets being knitted for
you at home had better be handed
aver to father. For winter wear there
is also provided a one-fingered leath-
er mitten: to be worn over .the woolen
