Gift Guide, Thursday. Nov. 28. 1968 (5 Fine Gift-Tips For The Leading Men On Your List The Fine Art Of Gift-Hinting . Formahvear For Choice qTf pT I More men are having fun "going formal" than at any time in history, according to observers of the fashion trends, and the stylists have been giving them plenty of reason for it. The variety of formalwear styles has increased in direct proportion to its popularity. There are double - and single-breasted models, styles with ' shawl collars, framed shawls, notch lapels, peak lapels, semi'-peak lapels, novelty lapels and all of those in choices of satin, ' grosgrain, moire and barathea not to mention velvets, jac- ' quards and brocades. J The hinting season is now officially open. (Whaddaya-mean, we fan spell better than that; we meant hinting!) How will he know she wants a sterling silver pimionto paddle to stufF her own cocktail olives unless she tells him? And she won't have any idea what he wants unless he conveys the idea. LAY-A-WA1 NOW run... -sfi' v. But conveying the idea sounds easier in print than in practice. Of course, the wife or lady friend of the gentleman might be the sock-it-to-'em type who would like his suggestions straight from the shopping list. Here a simple tabulation will suffice. If you have to be more subtle, let's consider other alternatives. Here are seven offered by Hart Schaffner & Marx, prominent men's clothier; they involve ways a man can plant a gift idea subliminally, subtly or otherwise. When you hint, provide enough information to make certain you get what you really want. For example, if you want a sport coat, specify whether it should be a winter-weight or one for resort wear; both are available at Christmas time. 1. Certain people lacking in the refinements of gift-hinting just cut out a picture or advertisement of what they want and slip it under the breakfast plate. That's pretty obvious and should be avoided. Instead, cut out the photo or ad and casually place it where you would most likely keep it. (Don't hide it too well). Use it as a book mark; idly leave it on your dresser or in a shirt pocket. Put it in the drawer with your car-keys or with receipts and bills your wife Plight likely consult. 2. If your favorite item is in a store window, go window-shopping some evening and just accidentally happen by. 3. Admire the wanted item on someone else and, if you don't seem to be getting the message through, drop the word that you wish you had one. 4. Have a friend convey your gift suggestion. 5. If you are vacation-bound in the months after Christmas and want a clothing item, you might express concern that your wardrobe might not be jam IOY$' & GIRLS'. JSuulan.

FOR THE CLIMATE - If you'll be hinting for a sports coat for Christmas, be specific.

Ivan the Terrible wore one. The Lord Mayor of London wears one. They turn up at the beach and on late TV around some very distinguished necks. Knit shirts borrow from the military with shoulder epaulettes and stretch belts. A man's jump-suit for the beach has big brassy zippers up sides and shoulders. It is all like play-acting and isn't it twice as much fun when you are all "got up" to have a "dandy" for a beau ?

Say: "Someday, when I have everything, you know what you could get me?" And then drop the bomb. 7. If all else fails, be drastic. As an example, say you want a sport coat. Throw away all your old ones. Then you can claim you haven't a thing to wear for certain occasions. 'Could be that old line just might have a familiar ring to feminine ears. All set for hinting now?

Don't Rive him any more ties unless they're wild and wide . . . something he might not buy for himself. He may howl, but he is sure to find a time and a place to wear it, even if it is just to create a stir at the next poker party. As a matter of fact, never was it so easy for a girl to buy a gift for a man. Men's fashions are undergoing a major revolution, and male fashion accessories run quite a gamut from fake side-burns, to historic chains and medallions, to the flattering Nehru jacket . . . and aren't they all conversation pieces!! Of course, the young guys who have grown up in front of a TV set have been constantly exposed to costumed men during all their impressionable years, and they are ready for anything. Some of the excitement rubs olT on the more conservative guy who is still young enough to adapt at least one of these ideas to himself, like the revival of the chain pendant A Uwe the Deuxe vu SUN STATE OFFICE MACHINES, Inc. 8 3412 SOUTH DIXIE 2 West Palm Beach 833-1701 833-2611 a Exclusive Olivetti for the i'alm ur air i nan jjcui w.i u on oanras baa S Underwood agents g Underwood agents Beaches i bohhmm a l hese die the qneat qifis of music...each Dduxe Gift Set contains 3 stereo atajrqreatqifipriGe!
