«>• iff?, i^fr v W.»f' TUB UALlHUtMAJS, TtlURSUAl, It, 1936 6* *& Harry Coffee Opening Scheduled for Tomorrow English Influence to Be Strongly Felt During Current Season rpWO dominant Influences will be felt In styles for men this fall, according to word brought west by Roy Paehllg, general manager of the Harry Coffee stores, from the clothing centers of the east There la Esquire, the snappy, modern magazine that is making American men style-conscious, pioneering new Ideas in clothing combinations and color harmonies. And of even greater importance, perhaps, is the English Influence. King Edward VIII, who as the Prince of Wales fcet tho pace for well-dressed men throughout the world, will continue to exorcise marked authority over men's fashions and many clothing lines will feel the Influence of preparations for the king's coronation next spring. Summary Presented Following Is a summary of Mr. Paehlig's notes on fashions for men in the'.fall of 1036: The English influence on suits Is very definitely shown in both fabric and models for fall. We are go- Ing into a period of softness In clothing construction. This Idea Is best shown in the new English models with has no heavy padding and Is made in soft construction. This type of suit -will bring a new case and comfort to the wearer and will be featured principally In the doublebreasted model, bringing a liew smartness to fall clothing. Sportback suits also will be shown, but not to as large an extent as they were this spring. The sport- backs, for fall have been simplified considerably, and it Is expected that the one-filece shoulder, blouse back model will be tho most popular. Lounger Popular Another now type of coat will be Introduced this fall under the name of American lounger. It differs only from our regular models In the con- ntructlon of the, coat, which is softer and will, give more comfort to tho wearer as well as drape In a smarter manner. Double-breasted suits are expected to lead the fashion parade this coming fall. Trousers on the lounge models have pleats and some are made with tho zipper fly. ' In 'fabric, worsteds, predominate. The shetlands, cashmeres and tweeds will be featured In the sport type garments. Plaids and Stripes TWO words sum up 90 per cent of the styling in patterns: Plaids, which range from the large Glens down to small chepks, and stripes. The fall strlplngs are more Intricate, more varied and more broadly spaced *and more colorful than heretofore, and are expected to lead In suit pattern styling. .. All strlplngs show the British Influence. From London cornea tho two-color alternating stripe Idea In all Its variations. Tho comparative simplicity of the varied stripe Is being followed by more complex pat terns. In hats, the style trend is toward lower crowns and wider brims. Light weight hats will continue to be very popular and many of the brushed finished types will be shown. Ono of the new style features is the re turn of tho Hamburg, an off-the-face hat that Is especially appropriate with the English lounge type of suit. This hat should not be worn with sports clothes, but with the more formal type of ensemble. Slotted Collars "In" In high style shirts, tho slotted coV Jars made with stays and the 'modi fled Kent collars are the favorites. Ueeptonos that wero worn this BprliiE and summer are being re• placed this fall by a new range of colors known as dusty tones. Today the well-dressed man requires a shoo wardrobe, consisting of shoes for sports, spectator sports, day wear, evening wear and formal wear. Enquire Is sponsoring many new high style shoes this fall. Among them are tho reverse calf ekln, bucko leathers, pigskin and alligator. The heavier type of shoes are made in Scotch grain and lug' gage leathers. California Leads California leads the world in sportswear. Sport clothes of all types are sweeping the country and will steadily Increase In popularity. In sweaters, fancy backs of various 'types will predominate. These will be shown mostly In tho button front. Many new silky, soft yarns have been developed this year, among ^them being Mocuna, Mopaca, tho hob noil weave, sharkskin weave the hammer head weave, bubble weaves, ripple weaves and many other original ideas. A new garment being introduced this year is the two-piece ensemble suit, which consists of a sport ooat and trousers to match without the vest. Tho odd jacket and slacks combination will continue to bo pop* ular durinfc the early fall. In sport trousers many colorful pattern effects are being shown, the range being from the large district checks Vdown to the small shepherd checks, Overcoat Comfort Overcoats follow the general English trend toward ease and comfort The models shown for the coming Xall aro double and single breasted raglan, with full belt, polo, wrap Balmacan, guard, and the raglana with half belt. In the east the Bol- macAn, model is expected to be the leading style item, followed closely by the guard coat On the Pacific coast, baited coats will take the lead although we will show the feature Balmacan and guard ooate. la, formal wear the midnight bine suit and the double breasted mode TIBBETT8 DON ROOER8 JOHN EA8TON Patrons Are Served by Staff of Experts •nUFTY-TWO persons, «nch thoroughly trained for his position and tak- *• ing pride in the reputation of his organization for efficient and sincere service, comprise the personnel of thd Harry Coffee store In Bak- ersfleld. Almost without exception, Harry 'Coffee employes hero are local persons, graduates of the local schools, who have literally grown into their positions. As explained by Roy Paehllg, general manager, it has been the policy of the' store since its establishment in Bakersfield to ..take young people, upon graduation from school, and give them a thorough background in merchandising, promoting them as progress warrants Into posts of responsibility. As result of this policy, it is pointed out, the turnover of em- ployes is low. A large number of the members of the Harry Coffee staff have been with the organization for many years. The Harry Coffee management is headed by Mr. Paehllg an general manager, with Don Rogers as manager of the BakeraCiold store and Marion Tlbbets assistant manager. The balance of the staff is as follows: Sales Division Clothing department — John Eastern, manager; Harry Tlbbet and Frances Bettencourt. Furnishing goods — Clalr. Marchino, manager; Ervln Eggers and Jesse Jones. Hat department — Dale Abbott, manager. Sportswear department — Don Wheeler, manager; Armand Raftison and Henry Banducci. Shoe department—Henry Wicks, manager. Women's department—Florence Esbenshade, manager; Mary Eehl- nlque, Nellie Austin, Emily Ely; Rachael Rankln, Helen Cook, Eleanor Freeman, Katherlne Hastle, Sally Jensen, Avenal Rose and Alleen Hirst. Boys' shop—Wilfred Taylor, manager; Qabe Plymale and Roxey Wafford. Display Departments 'Window display — Dan Pauloo, manager; Dave Pauloo and Victor Weasel. Interior display—Harold Brewer, manager.

Receiving and shipping—Noe Carter. Alteration department—Herman Frankel, manager; Jack Bennett, Jack McKlnney, Mary Kilbourn, Lydla Normand and Amelia Flares. Doorman—Robert Parra. $ Porter—Morell Cooksoy. One of the unique features of the Harry Coffee store is its personnel education plan, designed to keep members of the organization In constant touch with the latest developments in the clothing industry. It is the policy of the management to bring to the entire organization all style and merchandise knowledge as rapidly as it becomes available, according to Mr. Paehllg. This Is done at meetings held one evening each week and during the course of 20-minute sessions held each morning. Technical Information concerning clothing and merchandising IB provided compariy employes for home study. , The Harry Coffee educational system, like any other good school, takes steps to see how much of the information is assimilated. Em- ployes are given regular examinations—and woe to the scholar who "flunks"! CLAIR MARCHINO DON WHEELER DALE ABBOTT EXECUTIVE Corporation Stock Owned by Persons Active in Firin /"TVING those who have contri- ^ Jr buted their best efforts to the upbuilding of tho Harry Coffee stores tho opportunity to share In whatever financial gain there may be, tho business has as its stockholders 22 active members of the organization. Previously operated as a partnership between Harry Coffee and his brother, Jesse, the company in 1925 was changed over to a corporation with Harry Coffoo becoming president, Roy Paehllg, vice-president, and A. D. Coutcs, secretary and treasurer. From that time on, the employes havo enjoyed the privilege of accumulating stock in tho corporation, and at present 23 persons actively In tho organization own all the stock of tho company. A stockholders' agreement signed by all holders of stock requires that when any one of them leaves active employment In the stores, It becomes necessary for him to liquidate his holdings to tho other members or stockholders. In addition to the stockholders privilege, every member may subscribe to a form of group Insurance which covers threo features, life, double indemnity and weekly benefits for sickness or accident, all of which Is based upon the salary classification of each. Tho company contributes a portion of each member's premiums. These concessions, together with liberal dealing with every person in the organization, havo built up a long list of "service record" em- ployes, it Is pointed out.

Under tho general direction of Ralph Hamer, advertising manager of tho Harry Coffeo stores, and with tho assistance of Charles H. Blggar, Bakersfield architect who handled the technical phases of tho remodeling program, tho Harry Coffeo storo during the past few weeks has boon converted into one of> the most modern and attractive- clothing establishments on the Pacific coast. Naturalness Keynote Naturalness is tho koynoto of tho new storo front, soft tones and tasteful simplicity of design offering a pleasing contrast to tho artificiality characteristic of certain types of modern architecture. Materials used In tho front are Italian Travertine marble and brushed bronze, tho floor of tho lobby being paved with Torazza, or chips of Travertine, and tho entire effect Is achieved with tho skillful blending of natural tones. Garish brilliance Is conspicuous by Its absence. Instead, the color schema Is worked out from the soft, light, tannlsh hue of the Travertine marble and tho warm copporlsh tones-of tho bronze. Tho result Is a natural, inviting front to a sincerely friendly storo. Metal letters, Illuminated from behind to create an attractive appearance, form tho name plate, "Harry Coffeo."

Tho newly acquired floor space Insido Is connected to the main storo by two largo arches, the first lead- Ing directly to the women's department and tho Bocond, toward tho back, loading to llio wrapping desk and providing an auxiliary entrance to tho boys' shop.

Eastern Connection Enables Coffee to Show Latest and Best Styles Maintenance In New York of a staff of experienced buyers today was revealed as the secret of Harry Coffee's ability always to supply Bakersfield residents with up-to-tho- mlnutc stylish merchandise, at best possible, prices consistent with qua> Illy. This contact Is maintained through association with Consolidated Clothiers, which has a membership of approximately 200 similar stores situ- uted In all parts of tho United States.

Nor Is this as strange as It might seem. "Sports promoting has much In common with general merchandising," according to Mr. Coffee, who attributes part of his success us a clothing merchant ,to experience gained in sponsoring such events as tho automobile race, from linkers- field to Fresno and return In 1911, when earn wero Just, coming Into use, and tho "world championship" wrestling bout between Mike Yolkel. recognized Champion, nnd Jim Crawford, challenger from the Kern Mlvor oil fields.
