?AGE TWO Bra Bars Start Hubbub in U.S. Fashion Centers fARK.) COUKTER NEWS By SAM DMVSO.V NEW YOHK (U 1 , ~ The twite Just fettled in New Hampshire may be more Important to you — but the men's and women's fashion centers here have some Issues today to which we respectifulJy call attention. To wit: 1. The application of Industrial engineering to the women's foundation garment. That Is the subject of a meeting here today under the auspices of the Associated Corset & Brassiere Manufacturers. Inc. The first session topic: "Time study as » management tool for measuring production." 2. The hubbub over bra bars. One school of thought thin the shop with the brassiere bar where the customer herself picks out what she wants Is doing her a favor in this busy world. The other srhool holds that women shauMn't be asked to buy bras on the run. One irate bra-maker says: "No woman's figure was made by a machine and it should never be fitted like one." "I'eok-a-Hno" fabric 3. The arrival, along with sprinE. of peck-a-boo or eyelet cotton as a fabric covering for bra and hljh- walstcd pirdlc. One maker rails It the modern version of the camisole and says: "It's marie to be .seen through the sheer nylon and cotton blouses." But the men have Just as kruitty fashion problems this sprmy, if you believe the makers of suits and accessories. Here are R couple of Easter parade get-nps shown at the fashicm shew of the New York Custom 1'ail- ors Designers Club: 1 A mohair-worsted blend suit in a soft shade of green. The jacket has narrow fishmouth lapels and a slightly shorter coat length. 2. A one-button single-breasted gray cashmere Jacket worn with a double-breasted vest of cjay necktie silk, above black and white pin-dot worsted trousers. After the Easter parade, says the de- signer, that outfit would be good for attending directors' meetings. There are other saloriai battles underway. Makers of the new narrow neckties are trying to oust (he wider sort, which they refer to scornfully as uibs. And a Boston tie- maker has an Easter noveltv — matching bow-tie sets lor father and son. 1/mg-point-cnUnr shirt - makers Insist that the round-|>n;;it-rollar worn 'Aith a pin t driving their product off the counters. But the makers of button-down-collar shirts Just smile and say they're the ones who are reaping the sales. Over in the men's suiLs division, a nation-wide survey by the Cloth- ing Manufacturers Association ot «ho US.A., reports a swing to soft fabrics such ns tweeds and flannels. They also find the single- breasted Jacket is gaining over the double-breasted. And the two- button model is pushing the three- iMillon coat off the racks — so says the association. But lor many a man Iherc Is . Kd news In the report that this j year clothing makers plan to turn out more two-pants suits. There almost disappeared in the East for a time. But this year the price of worsted fabrics Is lower, so that suit makers can turn out a two- j pant-s suit In a price field that the two-pant? addicts can afford.
