THE MORNING AVALANCHE J^ibbock, Te^os, Wednesday, March 4, 1942 Victory Su^J^m^Style After March 30 Men's Clothing ' ~ Regulations Set OmM343 For The Avalanche-Journal 'Cl WASHINGTON, March 3 W American men are going to be tailored to the limes in "victory suits." No longer will the well-dvess- ed man have cuffs to keep his trousers from whipping about his ankles. Neither will he have comfortable pleats, sporty patch pockets, nor a vest with his double-breasted suit. - These are out for the duration effective .for manufacturers as 01 March 30, the War Production board announced today. At the same time, the board said it had been promised the wholehearted cooperation of the clothing industry in fitting out American men in view of war needs. To Save Much Wool The order, issued to conserve upwards of 40,000,000 pounds of wool, hits the white tie-and-tails trade specially hard. The full dress coat, the cutaway and the double-breasted tuxedo won't be manufactured after the deadline leaving only the single-breastec t u x e do for night-clubbing purposes. Board officials said every branch of the clothing industry from fabric makers to clothing retailers, had given guarantees that all provisions of the order woulc be observed. This included, the} said, spokesmen for merchant iailors and t a i 1 o rs-to-the-trade for whom the manufacturing restrictions do not apply until May 30, in order to let them use up woolens already cut. One Pair" Of Trousers The order covers boys' as well as men's suits, and the total savings are expected to permit the manufacture of 26 per cent more suits in 1942 than otherwise •would be possible, and then 10 per cent more overcoats. "This program will get the country through 1942 without any clothing difficulties," a WPB spokesman said. Suit coats will be three-quarters of an inch shorter, s. return to the mode of a few years ago. Fancy back coats were ruled out eliminating pleats, vests, belts, and bellows. The width or trousers at knee and bottom is restricted .to 22 and 18V£ inches respectively, which are the present normal measurements. Suits will have only one pair of trousers.
