Sfrefch Fabrics Provide Men Wifh Comfort The marvelous middle -ground of sportswear that so many men have v.nilcd so long for is now here. .N"o longer must man choobC from either a for-sports only outfit or from styles that would never let him be anything but a spectator. Now sporlsucar looks like it's made for sitting back and re- la.\ing. but it 's made for activity. Shirts, for example, arc often worn untucked (the bottoms are finished off jacket- style). They look smart, yet offer freedom for action. Stretcli fabrics show up in slacks, and shirts and jackets, too. giving a .man comfort, not tight fit. In knit shirts, action is 1 h e kej-note. The important styles are Rugbys, Henleys, tennis and football jerseys. Sweaters arc in for spring up to the warmest days, they are knit of lighter yams, and many have short (above the elbow) sleeves that makes swinging a golf club easier. Walking shorts become an extension of surfer trunks, and what could be more active than skimming on a board over the rolling sea! Madras plaid is the pattern here. The man who wants to look like an athlete, but would rather do nothing more strenuous than move a chessman, can be happy this year in the new sportswear. Fittings A "Must" For Men Gentlemen, you may as well resign yourself to the fact if you are going to buy a new suit this spring, you arc going to have to stand still for a fitting. There are few men who can't wear a ready-made suit, b u t there is almost no man who can put one on off the rack and have it fit exactly right. A suit must fit properly, too, if it is to look well — no matter how expensive the garment. In fact, fit is very important if a suit is going to enhance your appearance. Here are a few tips to keep in mind as the tailor marks the garment for alterations: — The jacket should allow room for a slight variation in your waistline from time to time, but without appearing to be too large. — The jacket should fit snugly at the collar, shoulders, and armboles without binding, and should still allow freedom of movement. (Swing your arms about a bit to test the feel and pull of the jacket). — About 1-3 of the width of your shirt collar should show above the jacket collar at the back of the neck. — The length of the jacket should be to the point where the tip of the thumb can just touch the outside seam of the Irouser leg when he arm hangs down free at your side. — The shoulders and the coat line from the neck downward should follow the body line, — Sleeves should fit high up under the arm pit and taper gradually to the cuff. About V's inch of shirt sleeve should show below the jacket sleeve. — Trousers should fit snugly without looking tight. Watch for bagging of the material above the knee along the inside seam of the trousers. — Make sure the trousers break just at the top of (he shoe without wrinkling. If a suit appears too large or small all over, try on the next size, even if you are trying a size that you have always worn. There is not a standard size for all lines and what is a 39 from one manufacturer may be a 40 from another. BE FASHIONABLY AHEAD - Jn this handsome knit shirt fosh- ioned of E n k a nylon.
