Male fashion motto: color me wild
so far down as to be completely out
while blue, orange, raspberry, lime,
and pink purchases excell. Gone
forever are the pale yellow and blue
oxfords that looked so well under
maroon V-neck sweaters of a few
PANTS ABE STILL pants ... but
only temporarily. Modeled after the
female's culottes, bell bottoms and
flared trousers accompany the
renovated jackets and sport coats.
Beginning with the vogue in see
through fashions for women, so follow
the men ... in shirts of crepe, voile,
light cotton and other transparent
materials. Fashion experts recom
mend see-throughs worn open to the
Accessories for men have lost the
blahs too with buckled boots, chained
shoes, floral ties, chiffon
handkerchiefs, jeweled cufflinks, and
of course, the perennial neck scarf.
So as the fashion cycle is turned,
no longer can critics of women's
fashions accuse the female sex of
masculine modes. Rather, cries of ef
feminate males will arise from the
traditionals. Or could it just be a
meeting of the minds?

At long last, the male sex has been
emancipated. Women won their vic
tory at the polls in 1921 but males
who have been so firmly entrenched
in the "dark ages", have truly come
into the lime light (and French blue
and raspberry) only recently.
To appease those readers about to
take up the cause for masculine
political freedom or hire a lawyer,
the emancipation applies to
No longer swathed in drab brown
& olive, and gray suits of the tradi
tional two-and three-button variety, he
has been tagged effeminate for
sporting rainbow hued shirts, flowered
bell-bottomed trousers, wider polka
dot ties, and colorful shoes.
BUT DEVIATIONS from the Brooks
Brother's brown, heaven forbid, a
gray flannel, have been adopted by
multitudes of males, praised in equal
numbers by admiring females.
The initial departure from the nar
row lapeled suit worn with narrower
tie, arrived from India with the Nehru
jacket. Adopted first by the daring,
now even the dubious know it was
where it was at. With the first
renovation in traditional wearing ap
parel, men's clothing producers
seemed to go bersek. It was as if
they had been harboring far-out
fashion sketches in locked drawers
just waiting for the proper moment
of market acceptance. And it's here
BASED PERHAPS on the old-
fashioned look so lately popular with
women's designers, the Edwardian
look in male attire is definitely 'in.
The male species evidently feels no
qualms when it comes to masculinity
challenges since ruffled shirts, avec
laced cuffs, is a suggested accessory.
Country squire jackets and suits,
belted.. buttoned, and tucked, mainly
in tweeds, are another diversion from
Doubje-breasted suits have never
been more popular since
grandfather's day and materials
range from pin stripes to win

have even adopted the no-button suit,

This is a girl.
It used to be easy. The boys wore pants and short hair and the.
girls wore skirts and long hair and ev erybody knew which was which
and what was what. Well, it isn't simple anymore, but it's also lots
more stimulating and individual and sexy. Yes, you heard us right
s-c-x-y. (If anybody has any doubts about girls in pants being
un-girl, we refer them to Dietrich or Garbo or any of the ladies in
Arabian Nights.) In fact, it's our opinion that giris in pants arc so
groovy and right for their time that we have pants (and their
accompaniments) for anything and everything. If you'd like to be
this new kind of girl, see a new-minded store. The name of one?
Just read on.
