a garment of its Character is necessary

Its mission in life is to provide for the
traveler and those who cycle anil play
golf. For travelers there are jackets
of two kinds—a short basqued model,
with tight-fitting back and loose, box
fronts, and a sacque-back coat of great
er length. The latter is also worn by
cyclists and golf players.
There is little new about the first
model. It is similar to that worn last
year, with the exception of the sleeves,
which are rather small. The coloring,
too, is changed, for one may now wear
a jacket of the shade known as the
"huntsman's pink," although it is too
startling for use by any but the pos
sessor of an unlimited wardrobe.
The second model is decidedly chic,
and may be made of any material—
