THE HEADLINE STORY is the new bold geometric, paisley or
native print cotton hats that are designed for beach or holiday
wear. It’s the hat that’s fun to wear, looks well on and just may
change a bareheaded generation of college men into a nation of hat
men. Both the round and flat top models are always worn brim

THE SOCKLESS LOOK and common sense have come to terms.
While we like the look of bare ankles with certain casual clothes—
we know it’s harmful to feet and murder on shoes. So, we recom
mend you slip on the new mini socks that preserve the naked look
and offer protection at the same time. For sportswear you can’t go
wrong with the new Smooth leather reverse suede casual shoes in
either the slip-on or eyelit tie model. Color is generating a lot of
excitement in daytime footwear. Choose from a wide range of tan.
gold, pastel green, blue or burgundy. Other newsworthy footnotes
are the easy going sandals in a wide range of leathers and colors.
ANYTHING GOES during the day but when the
sun goes down there are plenty of places, even on
the casual summer circuit that won’t let you in
without a coat and tie. The look we like best is a
navy or medium blue double breasted blazer with
white stitching. Tie on a printed silk tie in the new
wider widths and you’re ready to do the town. If
this summer will see you making an important
entry into the business world, a lightweight wool
and polyester suit in any of the new lighter colora
tions will see you handsomely through the hectic
days ahead. And for the avant garde, a double
breasted or 2-button model suit is an excellent
TIME TO RING DOWN THE CURTAIN on another academic year.
So, whether you plan to surf, soak up some rays or try the junior
executive life, make the most of it and have a ball this summer! Au
revoir until the fall when we’ll be back with the scoop on Back-to-
College fashions. See you in September.

LITTLE MAN ON CAMPUS
THE COUNTDOWN TO SUMMER is feit from one corner of the
campus to the other. The race is on to finish papers, cover the terms
work and find something to do this summer before the semester
ends. So with sights on splitting the campus scene let’s check out
your warm weather wardrobe for Summer ’67.
MAKE A BIG SPLASH with the latest look in swim suits. For the
uninhibited set, there’s nothing better than the Tarzan style loin
cloth swimsuits we highlighted in the February column. For more
conventional good looks, we like the new lightweight quick-drying
cotton corduroy swim-play shorts. Style runs the gamut from ex
tension waist band to belted models and from brief to surfer length
leg. Bright color is the keynote for ’67. Yellow, green and gold
bathing trunks are getting the biggest play and the multi-color
stripe straight hanging jersies are a natural to top them off. The
colorful cover-ups are not only smart looking but tailor made to
suit every taste. You can choose anything from a cool, sleeveless
boat neck to a free swinging mock turtle neck shirt with length
