"Right Clothes At Right Time/' Menswear Theme "The Right Clothes at the Right Time" is the new emphasis on menswear for spring. For with the recent important stress on casual attire, come men have lost sight of the fact that there are suits, and individual types of sports appcrel, too, designed and meant for different occasions in their day-to-day live.". The dark blue suit, for example, Is essential and right for Informal evening gatherings. The tweedy sport coat is acceptable neither for parties of -this sort nor for business, but has its place on picnics or at the country club. Menswear authorities point out that a wardrobe, of this nature, keyed to meet the dress requirements of every occasion, is also · long -run economy offered by constant rotation o'. the clothes. Variety Easier With the large choice of suits and topcoats, en hand for business and street wear, for spring, wardrobe variety is easier than ever. As never before, along with the emphasis on wardrobes that include the right clothes for the right time, menswear makers are placing great stress on the "natural look." This indicates an increasing number of clothing styles that bring out a man's natural body contours, padding him only slightly to flatter his figure. Perfect example of the "natural look" is the single.-breasted, two- button suit. This type of suit is also typical of the trend to lighter weights and reduced bull: in suits. "Natural shoulder" suit models, featuring narrow lapels, buttons set higher, and trim, conservstiv tailoring, are expected to, mor than ever, increase in popularity this cpring, in keeping with th "natural look" theme. Straight TtKoata Th« same natural feeling ex lends to new topcoats. They ar styled with narrower shoulder that are usually combined with set-in sleeves rnd fly or button through 'fronts. Raglan topcoat with bal collars also place spe cis! emphasis on this ctraigh hanging effect. Other suit silhouettes, featured for the new season, along with the "natural shoulder" model with straight body lines, Include the drape model with moderately broad shoulders, and the .lounge model, with moderate width ant slightly raised shoulders. Each ol the three Is expected to find an important place in men's spring styles. Fabric-wise, the lighter weights and softer textures, given to tweeds, cashmeres and shetlancis for 1952 by the fabric stylists, is bringing them to the fore i.i men's styles. Also predominant are new rayons, in linen weaves and shantung types, as well as other blended synthetics, such as Orion, Dacron and Vicara. . Certain to win favoi with America's men are the liphter, brighter shades of grnys, tans and browns, introduced for ' spring. These colorful shades are accented in street wear, in many instances by multi-colored' checks, plaids and novelty patterns. Fldnnel For Snrinn Casual Dress Still Popular With The Men The soft textured fabrics, such as wool shetlands and tv.eeds, featured for men's casual wear, this spring, are a perfect example of the strong masculine interest shown in the hardy, casual man ner of leisure dress. Sports coats, with new emphasis on checks, plaids and self weaves, come into their own in the spring sportswear picture. They are being designed with an ncreasing number'of center and side vents. In the East, particularly around \'ew York, sports coats with pocket flaps and an added watch ocket are featured. Most of these ore three-button models with side vents. Flannel, the top favorite for slacks last year, :s predicted to continue ( its popularity through he new season, along with wool gatardine. The flannels are avail- ible in many shades of grey, from ight to dark, .with charcoal brown adding a new note. The slacks Fashion To Live In James E.
