By KEN FISH the wide range of questions I get is quite encouraging to a man in may business. It certainly indicates that the interest in men's fashion is great and growing all the time. Here's a cross-section of queries: Dear Mr. Fish: I saw an ad for a suit described as having "the look of doubionl silk in a polyester double knit." What in the world is "doubionl"? — R.W., -Lexington. DEAR R. W.: A typographical error. It should have read "douppioni" (Italian), "doupion" French) or "dupion" (English). In any language, it's silk thread made from two cocoons and has a thick, uneven texture that's used in fabrics like shantung. Dear Mr. Fish: I am interested In buying an authentic polo coat, but I'm not too sure what all the features it should have (width of Lapel, kind of pockets, half- belt or full, length of coat, etc.)—R.F.T., Kalamazoo. DEAR R.F.T.: Originally, the polo coat was a buttonless wrapped coat with a sash-tie belt. Most of the new models are buttoned, however although it's still correct to call them p ol o coats. Many of the newer models have buckled belts, but the trend is toward tying them like a sash instead of using the buckle. Your coat KEN FISH should have wide lapels (at least five inches), deep patch pockets with or without flaps, and should be knee length or 'a little longer. Dear Mr. Fish: Can you give me the names of two or three of the finest custom tailors in London? I am particularly interested in conservative suits for a man of ffi). —T.L.G., Baltimore. DEAR T.L.G.: There are, of course, many fine tailors in London. Three I would suggest for your particular taste are Hardy Amies Ltd, H. Huntsman & Sons, Ltd., and Kilgour, French & Stanbury. A lot of you certainly are "repeaters" when it comes to asking questions. One of the things that appears to bother you most is the right way to tie the wider ties. A Windsor knot in a four-inch to 4% - inch tie is so big and bulgy that it looks like a basketball; we recommend either the half-Windsor or the traditional four-in-hand, to the mystification of many men. For instance: Dear Mr. Fish: Some time ago you spelled out the directions for tying a half- Windsor knot, which I cut out. But I've misplaced it somewhere. Would you mind repeating it? — M.W., Saginaw. DEAR M.W.: Yes, I would mind, and I'll tell you why. When I got your letter, I looked up that column in the files and reread it. And it was absolutely incomprehensible to me, and I KNOW how to tie a half-Windsor knot. What I'm doing instead is to send you a diagram, which is much easier to follow. Dear Mr. Fish: Do you think the slim tie will ever return to fashion? I've heard that styles in men's clothes come and go in cycles. — T.N.E., Nashville. Dear T.N.E.: There's a new book out called "The Kondratieff Wave," in which the theories of a Russian economist who was purged in the '20s are explained: his idea is that practically EVERYTHING repeats itself in 52-year cycles. Which might well apply to those skinny "string" ties which I, for one, don't ever want to see again. However, there are definite signs that some tie manufacturers are beginning to slimdown their spring models, but the bulk is coming off in almost infinitesimal fractions, the way it does when you're on a diet. There still seem to be a lot of men who resist change in fashion simply because it's change. Can't say that I blame them, in some ways. Back in the 60s, change was often made for the sake of change. Fortunately, saner and wiser heads are now prevailing. Dear Mr. Fish: What's the lowest acceptable heel height in today's fashionable footwear? — K.F.S., Indianapolis. Dear K.F.S.: The lowest acceptable height of the heel is, I suppose, what it's always been — an average of one inch. If it's fashion you're talking about, though, the iy 2 inch to two inch height is better (the latter is about the limit unless you're into the platform-soled, ''Carmen Miranda" type of shoe that's popular with younger men). Oddly enough, due to their construction, these new heels often look higher than they are. When in doubt, measure. Dear Mr. Fish: I've heard that there's a "revival" in two-toned saddle shoes. Well, I heard the same thing last year and they were In the most outlandish color combinations I've ever seen, such as orange and brown or green and red. If this is a revival, it's not not what I remember about saddle shoes.—P.McA., Portland "ear P. McA.: Rest easy: These new saddle shoes are in the classic combinations of black-and-white and brown- and-white, with an occasional excursion into brown-on- brown styles. But, as with everything else that's being touted off as a "revival," these aren't any such thing.
