Prices are climbing and the manufacturers are trying to remain competitive by keeping them down. Men's Fashions Estimates are that men's suits will run from five to 15 per cent higher, so the trend is toward unstructured suits which cost less to make, toward such new fabrics «s stretch-wovens which are more economical than imported fabrics made expensive by devaluation. Leather is sky high and prices are climbing steadily to the point where a luxury long coat is for the Big Spender. The answer is leatherlike fabrics, and this could mark the birth of a significant new category of outerwear. SOME OP these ideas, including ways of keeping suits Under the $100 level, were unveiled at the recent semiannual market week run by the National Association of Men's Sportswear Buyers (NAMSB) which brings hundreds of clothing buyers from around the country into New York to see what's new.

Some details from the NAMSB showings: Clothing: The vested suit in all age brackets and now supplemented by "Wardrobe sets" made up of sack coat, matching pants, contrasting pants and vest. Double breasteds regaining popularity along with the flannel suit-in neat patterns for the first time in history. Stretch wovens are becoming a third category this fall with wovens and knits, and knits will be cheaper than wovens. Lots of unconstructed clothing, moaning it has little or no padding. Outerwear: The long leather coat, sometimes with fur collar, is the No. 1 luxury item for fail, but a lot of retailers are going for the new leather fabrics to beat rising costs. Basics remain the suburban length coat in suede or the suede blazer. Wool in big bold plaids is the second big category and lengths run 44 to 47 inches—while the short 40 to 42 inch lengths become high fashion. A new category is functional outerwear for winter sports and the big number here is down-filled, quilted garments, bulkier than the downhill ski look. Pants: There is controversy over pleats and baggies but the fact remains a new look has emerged—a straight, wide leg. Some manufacturers show pants with a 22 -inch knee and a 24-inch cuff but a lot have it 22 at the knee and 22 at the cuff-straight and full. Some of the pants for skinny teenagers flare as much as 30 inches at the bottom, and that is a lot bigger than some of their waists. A third category shows narrow straight leg models for young boys.
