ft* ft n?, Tk PAGE SIX pJ .j* SIMPLICITYfois 4*8* I the keynote of fall fashions men's suits. All traces of the novelty garments have been effaced by the designers who have replaced them with a vastly more graceful, practical vogue. One dependent upon superior tailoring and high grade materials for its "class" rather than on trick features as in the past seasons. The tendency to conservatism is more ^adapted to the well dressed business man, providing a more digni fied bearing conducive to true poise. The sporty suit has been succeeded by one that' is more refined and cor rect. Quality Mark of Distinction Relaxing from their efforts to pro duce the so-called "smart" effects, de signers have decreed that suits rely solely on their quality for distinc tion. Discriminating dressers have always been aware that it is impos sible to imitate the elegant simplicity of high grade clothes with cheaper substitutes, so perhaps it was their they lend themselves almost prohibitive prices in the past few years that begot the vogue of ex treme suits. The fact that the clothes purchas ing power of a dollar has increased nearly fifty per sent, is probably, likewise, accountable for its abolition. Suits for Fall Graceful Suits are built along the natural lines of the figure, rendering them easy-fitting and graceful. Don't be misled in believing that the fashion has not its own basic style features, they are as clearly defined as ever, but are of an inbred nature consti tuted by the-lines and tailoring. This permits more latitude in selection and encourages that desired individuality. From the high school youth to the mature business man this fashioin may be adapted with equal success. Military Suggestions Gone Perhaps they lose something by sacrificing the military suggestion that was in evidence, reminiscent of the doughboy's uniform, but on the whole the change in style is distinct- ^tV''^ Third1 ly for the better, and the variation is an-added charm. Coats are semi-fitted with gener ally lower lines. Slightly waisted, several inches lower than in the spring and summer suits, and the pockets and lapels have likewise drop ped. The lapels are medium notch ed, long and rolling. A medium vent is used, about eight inches, the short er vent having proved ungraceful and not suite dto the ordinary physique. As to the number of buttons, it is wholly a matter of choice, usually governed by the type of figure and in dividual preference. Two, three and four button models seeming to share equal favor. Double-Breasteds Stronger There is always a certain quantity of double-breasted coats worn, espe cially in fall, and although they are not featured they have also received their share of attention. Noticeable in them are the same proclivities as in the single-breasted models, and so well and readily to this treatment that there is a strong probability of increased popularity as the season advances. The trousers seem to have struck a happy medium. Neither the tight bottom or bell-shaped trouser legs are to be used, but straight and full from the hips down. This is also an evidence of the conservativeness of the prevailing style. They are to be worn quite long, breaking over the shoes, without cuffs on the bottom. Vests Are Cut Lower Five buttons have been relegated to vests. They are cut a trifle lower with longer points conforming to the general droopy lines of the suit. Patch pockets were one of the in novations that showed the direct military influence and have been com pletely eliminated. Succeeding are the plain flapped inserted pockets. It will be noticed also, that they have been dropped several, inches to. 'a more natural position. There is practically no partiality shown as to colorsif any at all is Don't use your form just to hang clothes on Come in and choose a pattern you'll like, and have it MADE TO YOUR MEASURE Workmanship and Fit Guaranteed CHOOSE NOW AT BARNEY'S TOGGERY Street ^'4. 1 ^8fe^fefcV%.VBV & &&* ^fciifei.i&jHtvisSAaafc^iJ aJ &0fta i tsJ hfChesterTatel ws*v evinced perhaps it is to brown which is always attractive and serviceable and has been somewhat neglected re cently. However, green, grey, blue and mixed materials are amply rep resented. Checks and Plaids Liked An overdose of stripes has directed the choice herring-bones, checks and plaids for fall fashions. Overcoats, of course, show the same designing as suits but are more liberal in their interpretation. Belts are often employed either fully cir cling or confined to the back of the coats. This produces a trim and jaunty effect relieving that objec tionable bundled-up feeling. Roomy patch pockets are also noted, and successfully .further the effect of sturdy ^jputdoor smartness that is correct and permissible in an overcoat. i THE BEMIDJI DAILY PIONEER and andOrercoaf /orM Variety in Overcoats Double-breasted models appear todays, be most favored, but the best manu facturers are also showing some very dapper single-breasted ones, especial ly in the lighter weight top-coats. Very few fur-trimmed models are shown, and these confine themselves to a small, detachable collar of seal, beaver or otter. Pur-lined coats are only displayed for motoring. The fact that the prices of furs, has ma terially reduced might lead one to ex pect a more general use but the reac tion to that all-prevailing simplicity has predominated, banishing their apr plication. Raglans and Ulsters O. K. Raglans and ulsters are serviceable and practical, and are built along* strong, serviceable lines, insuring maximum wear. Some new and at tractive materials are used and the colors include shades" of Wo^fffpgi'e'en blue and grey, also novelty mixtures. 'Aiyp'ii ii jifwwiwwgiipi^^ For more dressy occasions or mild top-coats of lighter weight. Most obvious are the distinctive cuts and careful tailoring of these garments. They are quite short, barely past the knee permitting greater freedom for the legs. Blue and Brown Chosen Colors These models follow more closely the dictates for the suit coats. Belts and patch pockets rarely beingseen straight semi-fitted backs invariably appear. Blue and black seem to be the chosen colors for these coats. Remembering the prime requisites of the fall vogues,, quality and sim plicity, one may expect to see fewer incongruities and more dignified and gracefully suited men this season. If some of the spprtiness has been sacri ficed thi*. is more^than compensated by the acquired distinction. oMMtfi MOMMIMMUMMNP a i iff iwmjjiMS- IIHIWH IPIMIPVW 'FRIDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 9, 1921 ,j&i *$^^-|# Here In Men and Young Men's There's much to be admired in these new Fall duds.
