Avenues of fashion Solutions on how to dress well i By CHIP TOLBERT For all the talk about taking vacations when and where the spirit moves you, the traditional "last two weeks in August" seem to be pretty well entrenched still. I'm judging not only by your letters, but by the people I can't get hold of on the telephone. So be it. Dear Mr. Tolbert:' I spend most of every weekend on my boat, and for days afterward my eyes are so bloodshot and puffy that I look like a refugee from Skid Row. Can you help? — B. J. K., Portland. DEAR B.J.K.: If you think salt-spray is bad, try New York in the middle of a heat wave with an air inversion upstairs. They're equally unpleasant — and the best way to combat "eye fatigue" that I've found is to wear your sunglasses as much as possible, keep a large supply of eye drops on hand (there are lot of them on tho market that soothe the scratchy feeling and clear up the bloodshot look), and whenever you get a chance, stretch out with the new location-soaked eye - pads over your eyes, marketed by the top men's toiletries companies. This will help the puffiness. Dear Mr. Tolbcrt: I was interested in the reply you gave to the man who wrote In recently asking what (o do If he couldn't decide which men's fragrance he liked best. You sai diie should wear what he wanted to when he wanted to. What I want to know is what happens if you put on different products with different scents? — P. C., Kalamazoo. DEAR P. C.: Often disaster Is what happens. Whichever scent and product you choose, be consistent — at least day by day. Walking around with a lot of warring odors on you, each fighting for supremacy, adds up to a bad scene — and a bad smell — all around. The high cost of inflation is something we all hear and talk about — and with reason. There's no getting away from it: prices are high and getting higher, and that includes the price of dressing well. There are a few answers to the problem, though, so pay attention. Dear Mr. Tolbert: How cut a man be well dressed on an average income? I haven't found it possible so far. Can you help? - C. McC., Topeka DEAR C. McC.: I think I can. If you're not aspiring to be the BEST-dressed man in town, that is, (And even then, it's possible to look pretty great without bankrupting yourself.) First, take a good, long objective look at yourself and* your life style. This will help you cut corners when possible; for instance, if your job involves meeting a lot of people every day, and looking your best while you're at it, you probably like to spend your off duty hours relaxing quietly. Solution to problem: Sink the better part of your budget into business clothes — suits, dress shirts and ties -and as little as possible into "tops and bottoms" which can b e bought inexpensively without sacrificing an iota of fashion.

Don't buy on Impulse; plan each addition to your wardrobe in advance to fit into your current scheme of style, color and pattern. (Don't for instance, buy anything that can be worn ONLY with one other item: get what can be counted on to blend with several different outfits.) Try to learn to distinguish between fads and solid fashion — which is easier to do now than it was during the 60s: there aren't nearly as many fly-by-night fads around today. Shop carefully, especially at sales where a fantastic bargain may be a bargain because nobody else was about to buy It. And If it's something you're going to wear a lot, and expect to get a fair amount of mileage out of it, buy the absolute best in quality you can afford. It will last longer and look better while it's lasting. Cheap can be expensive, if you have to throw it away after a few wearings. Apparently, nothing's immune from the question of "consumerism" today, and men's fashions are no exception. No reason why they should be. Nobody likes to be "taken" and men usually expect to wear their clothes longer than women do, so they expect a certain amount of accountability from the manufacturer a n d • o r the retailers. Dear Mr. Tolbert: Recently I bought a pair of permanent press pants that was marked Inside, "Sanforizcd-Plus-2" on the inside. I always thought that "Sanforized" meant that something wasn't supposed to shrink, but what docs the "Plus-2" part mean? — J. J. Alton FA-rnin^ Tplor.;rnph Monday, August 21, 1972 A-1.1 3rd BELL INN CAFETERIA & LOUNGE 99e SPECIAL DAILY Private Parties A., Alton. DEAR J. J. A.: You're quite right; the original "Sanforized" label meant that a garment wouldn't shrink. Much later, when wash-and- wear clothing was introduced, they applied their standards to it and had a "Sanforized Plus" label guaranteeing that the product would perform as stated. This is simply a third- generation guarantee of quality, now applied to permanent press. Dear Mr. Tolbert: What causes shoes to squeak? I have a brand-new pair of slip- ons that arc driving me crazy. — S. R., Omaha. DKAR S. R.: There's an old saying that if your shoes squeak, they haven't boon paid for. Well, paid for or not, it's most likely due to a fault in the construction. For instance, if they're strap- and-buckle slip-ons, the friction of the strap could be the causfi of the squeak, which might be cured by applying a generous coating of polish to tho underside of the strap and letting it soak in. If the squeak's in the soles, take your shoes back to the store and ask oithor to have them returned to factory for cnrrpction. or for n ropl.-icnirif nl pair. V/etk ' * THIS WEEK ONLY! 9 P.M.
