problems which budding man and

"flares" and such, I sketched this
tailored suit which Mme. Marguerite
Df the Fashion Art League of Amer
ica has designed for early winter
frear.
An extra ripple, you'll notice, falls
from the close fitting waist line, giv
ing extra fullness and the much-desired
"touch of originality" to the
coat; the "flare" is confined to the
sides, the front being prim and
