16 .GPlejbuto fteaisrer«Mafl, Gotesburg, III. Wednesday, Sept. 18,1963 ctce f^aUemd *Set lite jpt Good fashion and good taste agree . . . pattern's the thing in men's wear for fall, complimenting both young and old; the teenager and the business executive; the traditional, natural-shoulder adherents and the high-style pace setters. There are few elements of male apparel that won't get the point of pattern for a bright, colorful, exciting season. Long the exclusive property of women's wear, patterns now become a fashion story for men, reports the American Institute of Men's and Boys' Wear. The classics are finding new prominence with the increased interest in traditional, natural - shoulder clothing; bold, new ideas of fall sportswear and contemporary clothing. Although definite, forceful ideas, these patterns are men's wear patterns with men in mind. Stilts—Sporfscoats Fall suits will characterize the advent of the "town or country" attitude of fashion via neat, precise herringbones. Part of the developing "classic look," herringbones are followed by the classic patternings of diagonals (unbroken fabric - width etching), crowfoots (neat, allover foot-like weaves), barleycorns (small three-line tracings with the look of a cloven hoof), all of which spill their influence into the sport jacket, topcoat and overcoat categories. The bold news in the sport coat field will be the rough and rugged look, underlined by the big, big patternings of no-repeat glen plaids, hound's-tooth checks and window-pane ideas, all in col­ ors that will rival the brightest fall foliage. Whether you buy them as dressy sports shirts or sporty dress shirts, this fall you'll find an array of positive shirt patterns led by the stripes. These designs run the gamut from the finest pin stripes to the most assertive tape stripes — color-on- white or color-on-color, such as red-on-blue oxford. Backing the stripes will be classic plaids on white or pastel grounds. All will be equally at- home in town or the country. Stripes, polka dots, allover figures are just a few of the many design ideas that will show up on fall neckwear. Brightening up considerably, they will appear as definitive statements of fashion with co - ordinated, patterned pocket squares. Sportswear Sportswear will get the pattern treatment by the application of traditional clothing motifs such as glen plaids and hound's-tooth checks to bulky, shaggy sweaters. Versions of the more masculine spotted animal skins, such as goat and unborn calfskin, will give added interest to both casual indoor wear and outerwear.

Both are Cinderella designs. classic, authentic ski motifs, while many apres-ski sweaters and casual ideas are marked by new checkerboard knit-and- leather idea. With this seeming plethora of patterns turning up for fall, the problem immediately arises as to which patterns mix and which pattern combinations should be avoided. ' Basic Recipe While the only ground rule for mixing patterns is the exercise of good taste and thought, there are some basic guidelines that should prove helpful to the beginner. Let one pattern dominate the outfit, whether it be the suit or sport coat, the sweater or the slacks, the shirt or tie. Work small, neat checks or plaids with bold stripes; vary the width, spacing and direction of stripe combinations; use polka dots and foulards as accents on stripes and plaids; mix classic patterns of varying degree of intensity such as glen plaids, herringbones, club stripes, etc.; experiment with an all-light look or a combination of light-and-bright with dark - and- rich. Whatever your personal pattern preferences and your ideas on mixing them, don't be afraid to try something different ... try various combinations until you, and those whose taste you trust, decide that the effect is in good taste and reflects good fashion. Layer Ensemble New suits have a complete look, often "layered." A wool suit is underscored with wool, sleeveless pullover, buttoned in back. Seven-eighth skimmer coats are worn with lighter-weight matching skimmer dress. The highly important cape-suit is debonair with turtle neck, sheer wool blouse.
