Cdrduroy Gains Importance By Edward Lawrence llight, medium and heavy Give a man enough cord — weight. and he'll be a well-dressed man| this fall. Corduroy, has come into its own as a respectable fashion fabric in men's and boys' sport ahirts, slacks, vests, sport coats and waist- and hip ^ length jackets. Add to your fashion vocabulary the words pinwale, midwale and wide wale, which Styling Notable styling-up of this hard-wearing fabric is evident in luxurious-looking corduroy jackets with hopsacking or lancer jacket—a kind of shirt- jacket with diagonal side pockets and flapped breast pockets. Heavy - duty corduroy storm coats come in fingertip lengths and slightly longer, usually burlap effects, many printed injwith deep pile linings, and continental checks. mutedLsomctimes with fur or knit col- ars. In some avant garde Ital- !ian-styled leisure coats, wide plaids and other patterns. No stripes, though. Variations on the sport coat-wale corduroy is u.sed, with the are the corduroy equivalents ofjinclude cardigans and the newifront cut in the no-fapel cardigan fashion. Finishes Many new corduroy garments have a water-repellent finish, and currently the lab boys are experimenting with a finish to repel oily stains. This may be ready sometime in late fall. Corduroy colors—at least for men — are muted. Burnished green, gray-brown, olive green, black olive, loden green and charcoal are the hues most men are likely to like. On the lighter side are several autumn yellows, from lemon to burnished gold. You'll still see light beige and sand-colored jackets, but mostly these are giving way to dull browns. CLOTHES LINE When stretching rope or a light cable, as in putting up a clothes line, you can save later adjustments with a short length of light chain. Fasten the line to the chain, then hook a link over the anchor point. Adjust by simply moving the hook to another link. Blends Gam Look of Natural Fibers The beauty of the man-made; fibers is best seen in the new blends that assume the look of one of the natural fibers, creating fabrics with the bulky look of autumn fabrics but light in weight. Rayon and silk tweeds,j for example, are soft and feather-light. One designer chooses it for party dresses trimmed in lace or in swags of velvet; another chooses these light-weight blends for costume suits to wear under coats. They fool the eye—and often the hand, their beauty matches the weaves they imitate. . RACINE SUNDAY BULLETIN Avrnst t, 198» gee. t. Pate Do You Hove SUN DRIED HAIR?
