When it comes right down to it, most men will probably admit that they know more about selecting a tractor or buying a car than they do about the workmanship in a good pair of overalls. But if anyone thinks that men's work clothes don't get as much careful attention in manufacturing as Mom's house dresses, he has another guess coming. Because they get all kinds of hard wear and must make endless trips through the family wash, overalls, blue jeans and all work garments must be able to "take it." Getting good quality, longwearing work clothes is easy if you know ,\vhat to ask for, say clothing authorities, Iowa State College. But just a random trip to any store may mean disappointment in your purchase. It pays, they say, to go to your local reliable merchant for work clothing as well as dress suits. Work Shirts And here's what to look for in work shirts. The should be of fine, closely woven chambray. The shirt should be labeled "sanfor­ ized," which means that it will not shrink more than one percent (a very small amount) when laundered. Then, too, vat-dyed shirts are better. They won't fade when washed. Correct size gives fullness through the body and sleeves. Felled seams that are double- needle stitched, and ample cut of shirt tail are points to consider also. The collar should be well centered on the shirt and should have a neck band like a dress shirt with the button centered properly at the throat. Pearl buttons on a wash shirt are best. Bib overalls and blue jeans are both cut to definite standards so that they will be correctly proportioned and a good fit for every size man. Blue denim is standard for overalls because it gives washability and long wear at low cost. It does fade. Therefore overalls should be washed separately. But the manufacturers are now making progress in de veloping dyes which will not run" when overalls or blue jeans are laundered. Buying Hints Choose overalls or jeans of eight-ounce denim. Make sure garment carries a label indicating the article is "sanforized." If you find this label, buy the exact fit of garment. It will not shrink. To get the right fit, select the size according to waist and in-seam measurements. If it has wide, double suspenders, the garment will wear longer and be more comfortable. Triple stitching throughout the garment will make it more durable. Bib lengths come proportioned to various sizes. If the length of the bib is not correct, the suspenders will pull at the shoulder, or the bib will "ride up" under the chin. Full cut, reinforced pockets are most important. Inside pockets should be stitched, turned and then stitched again for clean finish and greater strength. When buying blue jeans, the same points of construction apply as in overalls. Rivets on blue jeans are not only ornamental— they reinforce the garment at points of strain. While these are not all the points to consider, they are features of well-constructed work clothing no matter where you do your shopping. STRUCK "OIL" Dale Husmann of Menlo thought he had "struck oil" for sure last week, when a deep well which supplies several Menlo establishments started delivering gasoline instead of water. The "gusher" was short-lived and ended when a garage next doo r repaired a leak in the gasoline tanks. HORSEBACK Eight residents of Ogden went to Woodbury County fair last week—by horseback. The 120 mile trek was made without difficulty. The return trip was made by truck. Hold Picnic Dinner.
