Michele Dawn '-4)unn*vant, 10 months old. , Stylist Fits Carson Tastes Couple Wed By Patricia Shelton The enterprising and innovative young stylist of one of the fastest-growing men's clothing lines in the country is strictly a blue or gray suit man when it comes to his own wardrobe. " T h a t ' s i t , " said G a r y Thorpe, vice-president of merchandising and sylist for Johnny Carson Apparel, Inc. "I own 12 blue suits, two grays. This is the loudest one I own." You may see Carson on television in a big, loud plaid, but "loudest" in Thorpe's personal terms is a navy blue wool suit and vest with a light chalk-line windowpane pattern. "I've worn a vest and pocket chain for 15 years," he added. That means he started at age 16. Just for kicks, I asked him what he had on the ends of his chain. On one end was an antique gold watch that belonged to his grandmother. On the other was a gold-rimmed garnet fob that had been his father's. Then he added t h a t he doesn't have to like a suit or a sportcoat for himself in order to like it for Carson and thousands of Carson Apparel customers for whom it is meant. * * * WHAT HE does have to do, and has done successfully enough that the five-year-old company expects to sell 400.000 suits and sport coats this year, is come up with lines that are distinctive but not too far out, fit almost everybody and meet Carson's approval down to the last button and pocket slant. Top price on suits is about $120. Thorpe said frankly he had to redo a lot of his models in the first couple of seasons after he joined the company for spring '70. Now there are relatively few. "I've gotten around to understanding what he (Carson) likes." One of the main things is comfort. Consequently, to phase out the double-knits that Carson liked and Thorpe didn't think much of, he introduced textur- ized wovens, which he says perform the same way as knits, tailor better and look more expensive. Come fall 74, there won't be a double-knit in the line. There are still a few for spring, but the most popular suit models bought by stores across the country are a tex- lurized woven denim and an off-white texturized woven twill.. A n d a l t h o u g h t h e r e a r e plaids in the line, the most popular sport coat models this spring are the solids. * * # FOR F A L L , t h e r e ' l l be more plaids again, and a considerable number of suits with vests. There'll also be a sufficient offering of solids for guys such as Thorpe. Thorpe said Carson's tastes have changed a little since he moved from New York to California, but not the way you might expect. "He's a little more conservative." Thorpe, who lives with his wife, baby daughter and a 185-pound Great Dane in a 73-year-old English Colonial home in Boundbrook, N.J., came to Carson Apparel, Inc., from a job with super-sophisticated Berwick, Ltd. Since his work requires him to co-ordinate articles from a dozen different manufacturers, from raincoats to shirts and shoes, he travels an average of 250,000 miles a year. Miss Pamela Kay Henderson, daughter of Mrs. Tressa Henderson and the late Mr. Ace L. Henderson, became the bride of Eugene E. Webb II, son of Mr. and Mrs. Eugene E. Webb, all of East Bank, at 7:30 p.m. on Friday in the H a m p t o n B a p t i s t Church. The Rev. Ron Kincaid officiated and music was provided by Mrs. Jane K i n - caid and Ron Kincaid. The bride was given in marriage by her brother, Terrence Henderson. Conni Wage was maid of honor and Mrs. David Fletcher was matron of honor. Bridesmaids were Paula S p a r k m a n . and K a r e n S p a r k m a n , sisters of the bride, and Gene Campbell, sister of the bridegroom. Rita Green and Kevin Sparkman were flowergirl and ringbear- er. * * * THE B R I D E G R O O M ' S father served as best man. Ushers were Jim Wils.on, Steve Christ, David Sparkman and Robert Kirk. Following a reception at the church, the couple left for a short wedding trip. They will live at East Bank. Mr. and Mrs. Henderson are graduates of East Bank High School. He is employed by Appalachian Power Co. A MRS. E.E. WEBB II . . . .former Pamela Header- Wedding Stationery Three Printers 622 VIRGINIA ST. EAST. PHONE 344-2349 204 Thirtf-Fiflh SI. S.E.

Hollywood Beauty Salon 711 FIFE ST. 342-4542 Open Evenings By_Appointment, Monday-Tuesday-Thursday-Friday LOUDEST SUIT HE OWNS Gary Thorpe of Johnny Carson Apparel His taste in cars runs to a n e w n a v y b l u e Mercedes 450SL, which he drives between home and his New York office, and a 1967 hand-built Mercedes that he brings out of his garage "only when the sun shines." * * * HE ALSO collects 1840-75 English antiques and English tavern furniture and has a collection of pewter pieces dating back, as far as he has been able to determine, to 1732 or '33. Besides that, he has become a pretty good cook, for two reasons: he likes to cook, and if he doesn't come home by 8:30 p.m. his wife refuses to cook dinner. He, like Carson, has his clothes tailor-made at the clothing plant, for a similar reason. What fits the average man won't fit either of them. Carson has a 41-inch chest and 29-inch waist. Thorpe wears a 43 long coat and has a 33-inch waist. That, he added, takes a lot of tapering. How Can If Q. How can I remove the ugly-looking ring sometimes left on fabrics by stain and spot remover? , A. After letting the cleaning fluid dry thoroughly, hold the blemished area of the fabric over a steaming spout of a teakettle or a steam iron, until the stain disappears.
