With the holidays, a formal attire becomes mere than
ever needed and nine young men out of ten have elected
U's perfectly proper, yet youthful, easy and natural.
Particularly the new tuxedos that just came in. A dif

taste about it.
The coat is a one-button model, the kind that buttons
cress wise through the lapel instead of from the inside out.
Otherwise the coat is rather censervativecut free and full;
with satin-faced lapels and satin lined.
Price, for coat and trousers. $45; ether tuxedo suits at
