Mandy, the famous ParlB modiste, re
fises to make bloomers for his customers.
Asked to give his reason, he said. "The
quantity of cloth makes the bloomers un
bearable in hot weather, and it is impos
sible to keep them clean. The dirt and
dust come in between the plaits and folds,
necessitating Incessant brushing, and they
never look really clean, especially when
made in dark colors.. On the wheel they
neither improve a bad figure nor show off
a good one. The rider in small limbs and
hips looks ridiculous in them, while the
rider with large hips who takes to the bi
cycle to reduce lier weight, dressed in
bloomers, is a bad advertisement for her
tailor or dressmaker, and the laughing
stock of people or good taste. Jfo woman
with a good figure should hide it in bloom
ers, and there is hardly a first-class tailor
that would willingly undertake to make
-.hem for figures gooj or bad."
