12  THE NEW YORK MAGAZINE PROGRAM

WHAT the MAN will WEAR [[image]]

EVENING: Since dress became a cultural influence in human affairs wits have been flogged to devise a starched shirt-front that will not pop up. The lucky inventor well knows that he would deserve to have his likeness hewn in eternal marble or deathless bronze. The unraveling of the skein seems to be as far off as ever. Nevertheless, many ingenious ideas are put forth and even the button-on tab, memento of a vanished era, has been revived.

One of the many methods of subjugating the rebellious shirt-front is pictured in the accompanying sketch. The bosom is so cut that it tapers into narrowness from the top downward. The cloth outside the bosom is left soft. Thus the enveloping waistcoat keeps the narrow end of the bosom flat and the button-on tab helps to insure tautness.

The cuffs of the shirt shown are rounded off, a practice that is on the spread. The bow-knot tie is black satin.

No, they can't.

Here's where Raymond-Whitcomb comes in. They can get you the hotel rooms you like. You won't crack up before a Dutch ticket-wicket trying to palm off pesetas for gulden. You would be squeezed into the inside corner of a "nichtrauchen" compartment.

Don't go abroad without consulting us; we can relieve you of many worries. Also—this is important—don't forget our North Cape Cruise. It sails June 30; lasts a month; and visits among other places Leningrad and Moscow.
