MARCH 17 1931 w HAT FOR SPRING HAS JAUNTINESS Dash and Youth Are Shown in Latest Styles; More Brim Observed. The spring hat is debonnaire. There is a suggestion of sprightliness and jauntiness about it tl\at is significant of men's desire to affect dash and youthfulness in their Jieadwear. Even such hats as a,ro supposed to provide a degree of dignity and sedateness to the wearer, this season show a disposition toward dapperness that is just this side of flippancy. This applies to such hats as the Homburg and the derby. And by the same token the hats that have always pre-empted the function of expressing youthful dress tendencies, such as- the snap- brim and the telescope, this season go all the way in presenting a de' cidedly sportive and negligee as- U pect. i " The Homburg as well as the derby has just the suggestion of a tilt to it that implies a note of nonchalance which, does not take from it any of its dressiness rather a slight departure from too precise dignity and stilted effect. IMore Brim to Hats. Hats in general are slightly , larger in proportions than those of recent seasons. The extremely small hats of last spring were not found », to be becoming to big men or men with large heads. Honci while there is only a gradual tendency toward " larger shapes the trend is noticeable in the both brims and crowns ) of this season. In the Homburg huts there is a more defined curling of the brim, 7 a higher crown with a more preemp- tible taper. The derby, on the other ·} hand is a squattier hat, the brim is more flat-set and crown more rounded. " The snap brim hats have the cen- ( ter of the stai?e this spring. Almost V every man who makes a prevention " toward youthful dressing will wear * the snap shapes his prefered mani- · pulation of the brim. In this regard it is well to say that there is a f l } marked tendency to turn these I 1 ' brims down all-around especially among the younger men. - Telescope Has Return. A revival this season is the telescope bat which' has been in retire' ment for some. time. College men especially are bringing this hat back ''.with some prominence and while it will not eclipse the popularity of ;,the snap-brim still it will show a ' marked acceptance in college and " prep circles. This hat is different '-'in shaping than the telescope we bsed to know in that it reveals a ITl'very marked tapering of the crown B'anO.a more abbreviated brim with a very narrow band. 1 These hats will be madi of very soft felts so as to offer considerable srfexibility approximating the func- *'sbn of the "crusher" as a kjiock- GAY HUES .CHASE GLOOM MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTfc The Cheerful Service Store 107 North Fed.
