The wider bvim has very definitely found a place for ib:elf in all types of hats. Sports and leisure types will of course run a bit wider than the more conservative town hats, but the trend is generally toward the wider brim. 2'j and 2 5-8 inches are still the best widths for regular town hats, while the country types will look \\ell with brims of 2 3-4, 2 7-8 and i 3 inches. The spring hats have been necessary in the hand-blocked type.s. Those pre-shapud hats come in a ranye of shapes from Die round telescope for the younger iellovk to the cousin 1 vui ice spread crease, and even the regular center crease. These alretidy blocked hats nre to be found in a variety of colors, shapes, and trims, and the ccrrei't hat, factory-blocked, can be found lor almost any daytime i occasion. j Many of the new htus are being I shown, too, with the crown taper- wes a "Rare BiC DO ALL YOUR of advice, MEN! SHOPPING AT the Easter Parade! dark blue Wool for ni'jn'.s cio'.hing hi 1941 is expected to reach the most dominant position it has held for .several years, according to leading clothes designers and fashion commentators, chiefly because of the stress now being placed upon the durability and health advantages of wool in Army uniforms. During 1940 it was' u military year for most nations of the world, with the single exception of the United States. This year, with the creation of the enormous defense program, it is definitely u. military ye.iv for this country, and fashion designers in both the men's and women's fields point out- that the military note is having its chief effect :5n colors and types of cloth rather- than in the close-fitting military design which had its effec; upon civilian dress during the last war. It has been pointed out by wool growers and manufacturers that the importance of wool tor ,^r;' maintenance of health achieves [*rticuHir .significance at this time because of the. inferior quality of the "ersatz" or .synthetic woolen substitutes being used by most of the fighting forces in the world, with the exception of Great Britain and the United States. Durability Emphasized This factor alone, it has been pointed out, may evontimlly become one of the decisive factors in the present struggle, with wool furnishing one of the best assurances obtainable for continued health of the armed forces. This emphasis on health and durability has already carried over into the civilian field with the rugged Harris tweeds and worsteds achieving gn.-;i!(T popularity than ever bc- lorc.

Snapbrims are ever popular for casual wear i and the Uombury re-tains its high j rating for more tormal town and ! business wear. i Brim edges have also taken on a touch of .something different for Spring. While the plain well edge continues in vogue and the raw and plain bound cdgi-.s .still have. their place, the new edges acid considerable .spice to hats in general.

The popularity of the slack-and-shirt ensemble and the cocoanut straw hat last year has encouraged men's wear designers to launch forth this season with an unprecedented selection of sports apparel.
