MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FIVK Willie Gets Style -Wise With Fall He Takes His Cue on Apparel From His Dad. WU«n it cornea to style you have to hand it to the youngsters. We grown-ups who think we are style-conscious will have to look to our laurels, for judging: from what we see in the style picture for the younger generation, the young folka will be running circles about us. Take little Willie, for example. Not so long age Mother would have outfitted him in the fall with a boxy Norfolk knic- ker suit, with trousers buckled above the knees, black stockings, high shoes, some "waists" that invariably displayed the waist-line, and a cap, a sheepskin or mackinaw being added to the wardrobe when the -weather got cold. But today little Willie has entirely different ideas about a. boy's outfit. William will take his cue, as far as apparel goes, from Dad--or even more, from what the young collegiate heroes are wearing on the campus. Of course the styles will be adapted to the more youthful needs, but they will be characterized by every bit as much correctness, and the term used to de- ·scribe our William of six to fourteen years will be "smart.* ricking the Fall Outfit. If he's a young, young chap, he will argue for a couple of nifty Eton suits with knee- length shorts. One will be a corduroy with a smart plaid or houncls-tooth pattern, and the other a snappy tweed outfit-with a neat topcoat of the same fabric to match the suit. He'll have a nest of colorful shirt? to acid liveliness to hag costume and they will have trim button- down collars that keep that neat appearance even after good scuffle. Woolen socks in harmonizing colors, frequently in plaids, will provide smart shin protection, and his shoes will be nobby oxfords, in popular brown colors. William's wardrobe will have to include a couple of pull-over sweaters, because all the boys are insisting on these'in preference to waist-coats. Some o.' the newest ones are colorfully cross-striped and give a lot of "class" to an otherwise plain outfit. Of course, if William is a little too long-legged for knee- length shorts, he will pick his suits with long trousers. The popularity of the "long pants' idea must be attributed to the natural longing for William to appear as big and important as his Dad. He loses nothing in appearance by following thi: idea, however, so even if hi does seem an awfully little fet low. it's not a bad idea to le him indulge in his whim anc choose his auita with long trousers. Young Ideas .in Comfort. For cooler days and cold, Willie will want in his wardrobe coats that are right up to snuff in style. His topcoat will a Balmacaan model, probably In a breezy checked tweed, after the fashion of the smart coats the university men are wearing. For everyday winter wear he can let his' taste run riot in choosing a rugged mackinaw. These old standbys are staging a big return engagement this year, and may be had in flashy plaids, as well as in solid color corduroy. Of course for more dress up occasions he can pick a smart navy blue guard's overcoat, patterned amazingly after big brother**. In the matter of headgear Willie is not limited to caps, but he can choose from a big variety of top pieces, including snappy Tyrolean hats in bright new colors, gaily embellished with a cord band and feather. All in all. from toe to top, this fall Willie will present a picture not only of snappy style and smart appearance--but comfort, too--for the young folks have insisted upon clothes that are sensibly comfortable and that afford lots of freedom and ease. Striped Neckwear Gains Popularity Stripes will be popular this fall for neckwear. The smartest ones follow along in the Grecian mode. They are mostly on dark grounds such as black and dark blue. The stripes are extremely colorful. Then, of course, last seson's popularity of rabbit's hair, boucles and woolen ties will continue strong. Many novel color combinations have been worked out and they go especially well with rougher shirtings and suits. Brilliant Tartans New Note in Hose Brilliant Tartans, resembling in a way plaids, are the new note in 1935 hose styles. Color and pattern have put the solid color hose almost in the discard. Wools are far in the style lead, followed by lislcs. The colors are bright, exceptionally so! Green, black and yellow-gray and black will give you some idea of the combination. Sought for Jobs.
