Best Dressed Man in the World.
The majority of men believe that
the best and most fashionable in
men's clothes comes from London;
and that the best dressed man in the
world is the American turned out by
a London tailor. -
An American who spends a great
part of his time in London, ana is
rather a stickler for the correct thing,
was recently hailed on Broadway by
a friend with the remark, "So that's
what they're wearing in London, eh?"
The man addressed shook his head.
"Su;t made in Washington, overcoat
in New York," he said. "Thought
you were togged out from Bond
Street, sure," in a disappointed tone.
Then the man who lives much in Lon
don made this radical announcement:
"They can't make a sack suit in Eng
land. You ask a Bond Street tailor
for an American business suit with
an American fit, and he turns out a
NEW FRENCH MOTO
coat that gives you a cared-in chest
when it's buttoned up and a decidedly
open front when it's unbuttoned."
Yet some West End tailoring estab
lishments in London depend for their
very existence on American trade, not
alone the trade of Americans travel
ing abroad, but a mail order business
which entails making on measure
ments and forwarding by express,
likewise payment of duty. So impor
tant is this business that a cable code
has been arranged. With this code,
a complete catalog and full directions
for self measurement, a man may
cable his order to London, and feel
reasonably certain that the clothes he
wants will leave England by the next
westward bound steamer.
One traveler from a firm in London
making a specialty of cable orders re
cently visited New York and booked
orders to the amount of six thousand
pounds sterling. But this class ol
business is all in "semi-ready"
clothing, a system which has been
adonted from American tailors.
Yet the American "ready-made" has'
been a subject of laughter on the
other side: and the New Yorker's
claim to be the, "best dressed man in
the world," has been received with
jeers. To the foreigner the idea of a
man who has literally "no time" to
devote to matters sartorial being well
dressed is absurd-and the New
Yorker has no time. HeT can't wait
for clothes to be made by a "custom"
When he needs a suit he dashes into
one of those immense haberdasheries
that dot both sides of Broadway fro'n
the Battery to the Bronx, wac
thousands of "ready for service' s
and overcoats are iled on long ta es
in stacks that rise above a maa a
head. Here are foun-t prices and sizes
to fit every customer. Sack suits
from Sil to $50 advertised for cut and
.emartness. They are smart, too, are
better cut and sewn than the English
cheap suit, but the latter is mnade of
better material. It is just this differ'
ence that makes the American crowd
look smart and prosperous, while the
English crowd look~s merely comfort
The Newv Yorker must look prosper
ous. It is part of his stock in trade.
ils clothes must not appear old any
more than his face. This demand for
youth and freshness is what makes It
possible for some firms to sell as high
as 7.v00 suits in a day. Hats and
shoes get even more attention than
clothes. The ancient saw. "When
broke buy a new hat." is so thorough'
ly appreciated by the New Yorker
that he receives without even a grin
such advertisements as that which
puzzled Count Witte as he walked
down Broadway. "Fall Lids for
Faded Faces," it read. "Fail," mut
tered the Russian diplomat with a
look of weary amazement. "fail, that
means to tumble down, does it not?"
Some one explained that "fall" was
the America' for the season which all
other nations ktnow as autumn.
Last winter a leadling London daily
gave a column ('very morning to the
discussion of 'Tihe Fetish of the
Biack Coat." Every clerk and sales
man in London wears a frock, or
Prirnce Albert. dlurin-t his work. and,
like the English artisan. he w'ears rhe

the public press as to which system
was better: the American custom
which ordained the sack suit in busi
ness and a change of raiment for
laborers after hours; or the English
custom which set the frock coat up
as the emblem of respectability among
tradesmer., a marlk distinguishing
them from the laboring classes and
kept the latter in blouse and hob
nailed hoots during his hours of rest.
In England they talk a lot of what
seems awful rot to this side of the
water, and they take clothes very
seriously. Each class has its gar
meuts and each garment its use.
T.i London the Tuxedo is still a
lounge coat, something to be slipped
on during the early evening and dis
carded for the formal "swallow tail"
before starting for any entertainment.
But the American has forced it into
public life, has ordained a black tie
and gold shirt studs with it, in place

of the white tie and pearl studs that
must be worn with the tailed coat.
The American speaks of his Tuxedo
suit and his dress suit. The English
man talks of his evening clothes, and
would as soon think of changing his
trousers to match his smoking jacket,
as of changing his studs and tie to
accord with his Tuxedo.
While the vast majority of men buy
their clothes "ready" or "semi-ready"
made, most men regard with envy the
one who has time and money to have
his clothes made and fitted. The En
glishman of means considers it his
duty to have his clothes made by the
very best tailors and to wear them as
badly as possible. As he can rarely
remain long at a time %; hin his own
country, London custom tailors have
stored in their safes measurements of
hundreds of wandering Britons who
usually cable from various parts of
the world when they need new
lothes. These measurements are a
valuable asset and insurance on them
frequently amounts to several thou'
sand pounds sterling.
As a matter of fa t, the best dressed
man in the world is neither the New
Yorker nor the Londoner, but the man
who gets his frock coat, cutaway and
evening clothes from the Bond Street
tailors, who have made these styles
f masculine dress for centuries, and
his sack suits and overcoats from
Fifth Avenue, where one might say
hey were invented.

had sighted a Wolf. Dander and Riley,

observation, with the result that they
collided and fell together, sprawling, in
the sage. But Snap, gazing hard, had
sighted the Wolf, not so very far of,

The Oregon's Big Pennant.
When the Oregon left Hongkong re
cently, after her long period of service
on the Asiatic station, she was flying a.
homeward-bound pennant over 500 feet
in length. It was necessary to support
this long strea-ar by two small bal
loons tied to the end to keep it out of
the water. The pennant was made of
silk thread and attracted much atten
tion in the Asiatic port.
In the old days it was the custom to
have a foot of pennant for every day o.
the cruise. That of the Oregon is probs
ably one of the longest displayed fromi
the mast of a home-coming ship, al
though it is on record that the old
Brooklyn, on one occasion upon her ar
rival in New York, displayed a pennant.
700 feet long.
