LITTLE MAN ON CAMPUS
BY CHIP TOLBERT
ESQUIRE’S FASHION EDITOR
**BLACK SPRUCE” is the most fashionable
phrase in a collesre man's apparel this season. Com
bining lusti'ons blue and sparkling green cross
weaves on rich black backgrounds, the Black
Spruce formula spearheads the trend toward more
positive, darker casts. In tailored apparel, the all-
over effect of the blue-green interweave occasion-
all.v creates a striking Black Spruce application
in soft idaids, subtle stripings. and a broad range
of herringbone patterns. However, the major fash
ion accent falls on color and te.xture. The lighter
overtones frequentl.v contribute a moderatel.v lus
trous appearance, and. though the pendulum still
swings in favor of smooth-t.vpe surfaces, many
fashion-conscious college men prefer a slightly
irregular or "nubbed” finish.
WELTERWEIGHTS, in campus suits and outercoats for fall and
winter 'GG. feature heftier, bulky-looking fabrics. Boosely-spun
woolens and other fabric blends combine with crisp tailoring for
on-campus wear. In Welterweight suits, traditionally-minded col
lege men will hold fast to the conservative look of Natural Shoulder
styling: the straight-hanging, .'i-button model with a notched
lapel and center vent. The caminis fashion vanguard will prefer a
modified Shaped Look featuring a modest waist suppression, wider
lapels, and deep side vents.
WARMTH WITHOUT WEIGHT chai'acterizes the new campus Wel
terweight outercoats. Weaves and te.xtures run the gamut...from
tweeds and camelhairs to heftier twills. But whether selected for
dres.sy or casual wear. Welterweight topcoats follow one all-im
portant fashion dictate: they will be shorter. Knee-length is the
outer limit; above the knee is preferred. For dress.v occasions, the
darker colors pi'odominate: dark blues, grays, and, of course. Black
Spruce, For the casual scene, you’ll find a wide range of browns,
from clay to charred casts, will vie with crisp, colorful heather
COORDINATION IS THE KEY to a well turned out
appearance throughout the year.This season many
American manufacturers arc offering college men
an instant solution to the “What to Wear with
What" i>robIem: totally coordinated, campus-
oriented apiiarel outfits. A typical “Match-Ups”
ensemble might include a shirt, sweater, jacket,
slacks and hat coordinated from complementary
mi.x-and-match yarns, fabrics, styles and colors.
For exami)le' a hefty sport jacket in a bold dark
blue and moss green check: a L'-neck sweater'with
a dark blue cable stitch in front and a moss green
accent border surrounding the neck; a jiair of
basket-weave slacks in a blue and green heather
mixture; a herringbone weave oxford cloth shirt:
and a cloth hat made of the same fabric of either
the jacket or slacks.
RUGGED TURNABOUTS MAKE THE SCENE this
season reviving the once popular and still im-
menstic practical reversible coat idea. From a
purel;, ecomimical point of view, the big revival
of the , eversibles will be a welcome addition to the
wardis lies of most college men. From an equally
important styling point of view, you'll find them
crisply tailored along classic lines. Look for them
in a variety of combinations: smooth polyester
fibers blended with cotton or wool—and processed
for water repcilency—that turn about to heavier
fabrics like lofty tweeds, herringbones, or diago
nals in heather blends, plaids, checks, and allover
stripe ideas. Or look for smooth fabrics that re
verse to deep, furry pile fabrics.
