THE SIZ3 OF OUR COLLARS.
Tbe Americans Use a Pile of Them in a Year. From the Few York Press. “There is probably not one person in a thousand who could guess how miny plain white linen collars are used by American men in the course of a year,” said a memher of tbe largest collar manufacturing firm in this country to a reporter. “How many do you think;” And tbe memher leaned back jn his embossed leather-covered chair, slowly crossed his knees, and, blowing a flagrant cloud of smoke from a mighty good cigar, smiled interrogatively. 6 “Twenty-five million.” “Well, now, that isn’t so bad a guess for a novice, but if you should double that number you would just about strike it. Thirty years ago,” continued the member, reminisoently, “all collars were made upon the shirt, and from that I deduce the fact that our grandfathers must have worn more shirts than the average man does to-day. The only style of collar then worn was the •Bishop f collar, a huge flanug thing such as you see represented in daguerreotypes of forty odd years ago. A dicky or scarf was worn with this, and I should imagine that the whole apparatus must have been cum bersome and uncomfortable. Why that particular style of collar was called the ‘Bishop’is more than I know unless it was that it may have resembled those worn by the 'English bishops. The first collars made to detach from the shirt band were invented some twenty-five years ago and soon became quite popular. The original detachable collar was of the turned down style, and up to within the last ten or twelve years this was the most popular. Then the stand up collar began to come into fashion, until at the present day the demand for each is about even. The young man of to-day finds that the stand up collar is the most stylish, and if he be thin it will con ceal the angularities of a scrawny neck. Consequently young men mostly wear stand up collars. The middle aged man clings to the turned down variety, because he wore it when he was young, and the man no longer young, but not yet middle aged, sport the stand up collars for the same rea son. By this you can see that the stand up wili be the most popular all around collar in the next generation.” ' “What started the demand for stand up collars?” “It is hard to say what did start it, but it probably evolved naturally, for there is no doubt that the majority of men look better in a stand up than they do in a turned down collar. Moreover, scarfs can be worn to much better effect with the former than with the latter.” “What were the first styles in the turned down collar?” “There were three—the “Byron,’ ‘Wash ington’ and ‘Shakespeare.’ All of these were very deep, and were made to be worn with the low cut vest and huge flowing scarfs of that day. At the present time those styles are entirely dead, except in the extreme west and south, for which sections we still make a few. All of the turned down collars worn in the civilized portions of the country are now of moderate depth and have a medium space in front. The only new styles that we bring out are in the stand up collar, and average about four a year, one for each season. New styles are generally originated, with us at least, by some member of the firm. Designs are drawn on paper, samples made, and then, after some alterations, the collar is put on the market. Wo have had but one style that did not take well in ten years. The proof that a collar has become popular is in the duplicate orders that we receive for it. Asa first round we usually send out 15,0/0 dozen to the 8,000 dealers with whom we have open account;.” “What improvements have been made in collars of late years?” “When stauding collars first began to grin public recognition they wereltnade in two parts, the upper part or ‘blade,’ and a lower part or “band.” All were made in this way until up to the last seven years, the ‘blade’ being of three ply linen, and the band of two ply. Then the solid four ply collar came in, and|this possesses the great advantage over the old kind of added stiff i ess. You see the original standing oollar was made with a wide space in front and that necessitated a separate baud. As this narrowed down to the point of disappear ance, it allowed us to make collars of one Piece. “Men’s collars are all made in Troy, N. Y., and in Lans’ngburgh, a suburb of that city. The capita] invested is $12,000,000, so you can see that it is quite an industry.” “From what section of the country does the demand come for the largest sizes ?” “The demand for large size collars come from ihe west and for the small sizes from ti e east. The larger the city the greater th>' demand for small sizes and vice versa.” “How do you account for these facts?” "There are several reasons. In the first phoe western men are not so particular about the fit of their neckwear, and will use a collar which an eastern man with the same sized neck would think much to) largo for him. In the west also men un doubtedly lead a more out-of-door life, and thus develop larger necks, although prob ably not to such an extent as one might imagine. Again, in large cities youDg moD begin to ‘dress’ much earlier than they do in more sparsely populated regions, and thus the demand for smaller sizes is in creased. The majority of standing collars are cut, for similar reasons, in smaller sizes than are the turned down. We have but cue style of standing collar that measures as high as 20 inches, but there are five styles of turned down collars iu our stock ‘hat go as high as 21% inches, and of these there are quite a number sold, too.” “What is the largest size collar ever made by your firm?” “A 25-inch collar and 14-inch cuff. These were made by us on a special order for one of Barnuin’s giants. As the average size collar measures 15 inches, you can imagine wha* a neck the fellow must have had. The smallest collar we have ever made was 10% inches.” “Is the average size of collars increasing or decreasing?” "It is decreasing, and I have a theory to account for this fact, which may or may not ba worth something. It is that as a race the American people are growing smaller. There are other reasons, one of which is, as I have said before, that men begin to ‘dress’ younger than they formerly did, also collars are worn closer than they used to be.” “Do you manufacture women’s collars?” “No. The manufacture of women’s col lars is a separate industry. The largest manufactory for that class of goods is here in New York. It is a much more precarious business than ours, for it is more affected bv the changes of fashion. Just now collars are in vogue, ,but next year ruehing may come in and the manufacturers will be left with a useless stock of collars on their hands.” “Are many paper collars manufuctured nowadays ?” “The paper collar is a thing of the past. I" used at ail now, the demand for it comes entirely from the far south and southwest. 1 aper collars were once very generally used, but celluloid and the constantly in creasing cheapness of the lower grades of linen collars have driven them from the market. When the paper collar industry began to decline a pool was formed to limit the output, and that combination i., I be lieve, still in existence.” A dealer iti the finer qualities of gentie men furnishings on Broadway, near the I* ifth Avenue hotel, who has been in the same store for thirty years, was willing to mil about the prominent customers he has * sd, and to give, as far ns he could, the various Ktyl es and sizes of collars worn by them. “Here,” he said, bringing out his order book, “is an ordor from Grover Cleveland for three shirts and one dozen collars. Mr. Cleveland wears an 18-inch collar, although it is generally believed that ■lw is about his fit. He wears both turn down and standing, the latter being of that scoops shape variety generally affected by gentlemen inclined to stoutness. Mr. Llevcland never gives mo a heavy order, hut geuernlly buys -his thing iu quantities like the above. I have |ust sold Mr. Hcntoon, the gentle man who w n SIOO,OOO on Harrison’s elec tion, a lot of collars and cuffs, and, among other things, one dozen suits of silk under wear, at S4O a suit. He wears al9 or 20 inch collar, I have foigotton wh.ch, but he is a very large man. Gen. Grant v.as one of my customers, and wore a 17 inch collar. Gen. Arthur wo e a 16 inch collar, and was very particular in what he bought. He wanted the latest style collars if tliay were becoming, but he would not take one sim ply because it was in style. Both Law rence Barrett and Edwin 800 h buy taeir collars and underclothing here. Barrett is a very nice man and is particular what he buys, but is not extra vagrant. He wears a 15,% standing collar. Booth, I be lieve, wears a 15. Jay Gould comes in here quite often, and is a mighty nice man to wait upon. He wears a 14 turned down collar snd the smallest size underwear we sell. Mr. Blaiue comes in here occasionally. He wears a 153-tf turned down collar. J. Is. Emmett is getting stout aud wears the old fashioned 16)-j turned over style. William Waldorf Astor is one of my regular custom ers, and a more quiet, gentlemanly man you couldn’t meet. He never buys more than be wants, nor is lie extravagant in his tastes. It is imuossible to force goods on Mr. Astor. He wears als collar. Berry Wall buys all of h;s underclothing and neckwear here, and always wants the latest style. He is now wearing the latest thing out in neckwear, viz.: the old fashioned stock, long enough to go l wice aroung the neck. The ex-king of the dudes is not spending so much money as he used to. Not only he has not got so much to spend, but he cannot find as many storekeepers to trust him as he used to. A 15% collar is about his size, for Berry is growing a little stouter than he used to be. The late Wright Sanford was one of my liest customers, and wore a turn down 16% collar. Mr. San ford was always very neat and nice iu his tastes, but, in a quiet way, was very ex travagant. I have sold him four dozen linen handkerchiefs at a time, for which he paid the neat sum of SSO a dozen. Mayor Hewitt gels his things here, but his wife buys them for him. The mayor wears a 15 turned down collar. The Vanderbilt boys, George and Fred, ate two of my most modest and quiet custom ers. They want good articles, but are not at all extravagant. W. J. Florence wears a 17% collar, while John L. Sullivan, the last time he was here, was atisfied with a 17 inch. I guess he could wear a smaller one now. Fat SheeJy wears a 17% collar and Nat Goodwin a 16. Gen. Harri-oa wears a 16% turn down and Ed Stokes’ neck just fills a neat 15% stand-up collar. Bob Ingersoll’s neck measures just about 18 inches. I could tell you about many oth ers, but I guess you’ve got enough, ” THB BABY KING OF SPAIN. Possesses a Retinue o* Servants Greater Than Any Other Infant in the World. From the Youth's Companion. The magnificent state of the royal baby of SDain, King Alfonso XIII., who, at 2% years, has all to himself a retinue of serv ants which is probably greater than that of any other infant in western lands, was quite surpassed by that of the Emperor of China while he was still a child. This great poten tate, from his early infancy, had in his per sonal service more than 500 people. What could they all be employed to do? Nobody but a member of the Chinese court could tell the functions of all the people; but the list included the following: Eighty nurses, 25 fan bearers, 25 palan quin bearers, 10 umbrella bearers, 30 physi cians and surgeons, 7 cooks, 23 assistant cooks, 50 servants and messengers, 50 dress ers (to put on and take care of the Imperial clothes), 75 astrologers, 16 governors, 60 priests. With 39 cooks and 30 doctors, it is perhaps a wonder that Kuang Hsu, Empe ror of China, has lived to be 17 years old. medical. “A Dry Gough” Is dangerous as well as troublesome. It renders the patient liable to the rup ture of a blood vessel or to other serious injury of throat and lungs. To allay bronchial irritation and give immediate relief, the best medicine is Ayer’s Cherry Pectoral. “ I was recently troubled with a dry cough which seemed to be caused by an irritation in the throat. My physician prescribed for me, but no relief was ob tained. A little over a week ago, my attention being called to Ayer’s Cherry Pectoral, I concluded to try it, and pur chased a bottle. After taking this med icine only one day, I could see a change for the better, and, by the time I had used it a week, my cough had entirely disappeared.” H. W.
