·MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 17 1931 NORFOLK SUIT TO HAVE HIGH PLAGE Comeback to Depend About 90 Per Cent on Mother; . Dad Too. They're trying awful hard to pilt the boys' Norfolk suit in its proper place in the sun, but whether or not the comeback will complete or even partially complete depends upon the attitude, of both mother 1 and father --probably 90 per cent mother. Two years ago leading manufac- ' turers and a certain group of retailers endeavored to do this very thing, but met with only, a small degree N of succes.3. The Norfolk style ran its cousse thru a number of years, but when.the simpler and apparently more "desirable sack suit was introduced it was acclaimed by both parents and'ybungsters; In the better suits the Norfolk always was considered a dressy suit, but when it came to cheaper clothes the makers were unable tq put in the desired tailoring and as a result this style, while it looked all right during the first few weeks of wear, lost its lustre as time went on. That probably is one of tlie reasons why certain makers sought the relief provided by the sack model. Satisfied Witli Sack Suits. Even the strongest propagandist? of the Norfolk model aren'^t any too hopeful, but believe that they eventually will restore this style to.the high plane it price occupied. Apparently mother (and father to a degree) as well as sonny are satisfied with the two-button sack-style with either peak or notch lapels--and, accordingly, will go along with the model for this season, at least. / One interesting feature will be noted when you buy the spring suit for your boy will be a vestless suit Of course, many suits will-continue to have vests, but the big majority will be without them, due to the fact that during the. spring and summer Young America prefers to go without them and frequently is satisfied to discard his coat and substitute a sweater'over his shirt Style changes, of course, are comparatively minor, but greater stress, will be placed upon color. The rango is very complete, from medium light thru all the tones to medium dark Lighter clothes, however, · will not be-as prevalent as a year .ago, because in line with the general thrift policy cleaning bills roust be lighter, too. And Colorful Suits. In line with an effort to makn spring as well as summer, a colorful season sport 1 jackets in solid colors ,with striped troiisers will be shown in both suits for'all ages-of boys ,thru to'the twenties. These will be novelty clothes, of course with coats showing patch pockets while the trousers in some instance Meri's Accessories.; ShoW; · New Interest for Spring ~*Color and D e s i g n Have Free Range in Styl es. Johnny . Mac Brown, : movie star, chqses to vear this \vhite outfit for sporting around. V-9haped white 'camel's hair sweater and white flannels. will be pleated. Most of the coats wiU be single breasted. In the topcoat selection the three- button model again promises to occupy the-center of.'the stage. These coats will be presented in tweeds, some in "camel hair'and others in novelty 'fabrics. Topcoats for Juveniles. For the juveniles the reefer coat of blue cheviot-with the naval emblem, double-breasted effect, will win a lot of customers, while sin- gle-breasteds in tweeds also will have a lot of followers. And as each summer season approaches novelties are introduced io kiddies' play or wash suits and this season the number is as great as ever. There seems to. be no limit to selection in this classification. Chicago Priest Holds Services '. WESLEY, March 17.--The Rev. Father · Pregenzer of Chicago is having charge of special mission meetings at the St. Joseph's Catholic church this week. Services are held each morning and evening at 7;30 o'clock. He held mission services at the St. Benedict church last week. Not only has it become an expected fact that every well dressed man have a complete wardrobe of accessories for every occasion--it is just as necessary for him to consider the colors he prefers; the types of designs that suit his taste, whether it be conservative or bold; and how extensive a variety he can .have' in consideration' of his earn- 'ings. There are so many new things happening, that for. you to choose a few things wisely you want ,tb ,be thorply familiar with everything, and the verbal sketches we're giving you 'are fresh from the important (men's marts of. the world. ,, Everybody's . playing · golf these days! and everybody's -seeing^to it that their form is good irona the point of view of; game, and appearance; Golf stockings', have-gone in for Varied patterns in a big way, and most of the important new ideas come from North Scotland, where Argylla are made. Bird's wing iweaves in tweed.patterns are also popuar,' altho ^colors have ton'ed "down considerably. An entirely new 'and practical innovation is the golf stocking with an elastic-woven top which obviates the need for garters, and JS decidedly more comfortable. Pull-Over .Liked.' . And with socks, we must consider sweaters--which are .'favored L by. ^nine itenths'of the sport world in pull-over style. Lengths in. these snugly, and come in' crew-neck, open collar or turtle-neck types. : -.Socks TaJte/f) CWcks. Socks have, take:: to .clocks so generally, that.not one pair out of ten is seen without them. These are wider than has-bsen usual in the past, and invariably contrast effectively with the sock itself. Pastels have come in for some prominence, and in the deeper colors rust, chocolate, greens, blues, wine reds and sands are all destined for important holes. From England comes the heather, marl and-other interesting weaves in these darker colors, showing the clock in a bright contrast. Black and white socks, marine ; blue, castor, beige, grey, red and prune are important in the order named, and all of these colors are seen just as freely in solid weaves as they are in every conceivable jtype of all-over pattern in triangular, circle, stripe,' diamond and geometric designs. "·' Men about town are going to be seen wearing wing tip shoes for the greater part, altho the straight- tipped shoe with center perforations on the toe cap is destined for success In new, dark shades of brown, and in black. Another interesting fact is associated with the tapering of suit sleeves and. trouser legs : --making the tapered toe more prominent in shoe'.styles' for spring. The brogue type \ continue in popularity for sport clothes, 'and particularly for wear with tweeds, while for forma: wear the. Court pump has become more -important as a result of the extensive wear of tail-coats. Gloves Are Practical. Pigskin gloves are by far the mos popular for men, particularly in slip-on styles, and.they are followed by . the very practical chamois gloves which even a .bachelor can wash easily. Wild hog gloves -fo driving; mochas in.brown, gable md grays, capeskin and goatskin vill also be seen a. great deal in joth pull-on . and one-button types, and a few of the younger men have =hown a preference for the black jlove with white stitching--to be worn with black' or oxford gray suits and top-coats. Crew neck pajamas are going to come in stronger as the vances, particularly in solid; colors iat use contrasting borders and cuffs for effect. 'Slip-ons are the most popular, altho coat styles, particularly in English collar and Russian types are also favored. Underwear continues in the two piece theme, and white shirts with colored shorts, or striped shorts are more generally popular than the elaborate patterns that were attempted last year.

Wolfe, who sold out his barber business here to Walter McCallas- ter o£ Dows, has decided to locate at Klemme. :ypes^ · are. showing a greater diversity, ad many men prefer tne English type of sweater that just reaches inside the top of the trousers, nd is usually seen in-two solid :olors in a plain stitch pattern, in the 1931, shades of yellow,'. lemon, red, green, blue, and tan that are nothing like the old shades which look dull because we are so used to seeing them--as bright as they may be. Another favored sweater is that with a turtle neck, which for some strange reason is most popular in dark shades of Oxford gray, black, blue and red. Sleeveless, pullovers, too, are coming in big in every color range light and dark and are favored by some men be'- cause they seem to permit on easier, fre swing. There are some men who always prefer the coat sweater, and tho it is not very popular, it has been developed in all the new colors and tweed-like mixtures that are going to be worn for spring. Doubtless the polo shirt hag resulted in another new sweater which is gaining quickly--the short sleeved pull-over, which will be seen most often in pastel shades, and will be worn all thru the summer.
