The results are not always delightful. Do you remember them in knickers? Our own distinct recollection of knicker-clad feminine hikers and golfers is something that only time can erase. Men's subsequent preference for slacks may have been a repercussion of this unhappy vogue. We hope they've learned their lesson, because there are definite indications that men are returning to knickers for country wear, general lounging and golf. In the latter case, knickers are more practical than slacks for the playing conditions of early Spring and Fall. For Summer, however, slacks promise greater comfort than the combination of knickers and golf hose. In the last British Open Golf Tournament, at Muirf ield, Scotland, the majority of both participants and spectators favored the new, moderately-cut plus four. ·v - {S IMPORTANT NOTE: In case you have any doubts about what to wear and when to wear it, we should be happy to send you a "Chart of Correct Dress--Approved by Esquire."
