Worsteds Most Durable
For Making: Men's Suits
Men, in buying suits, should re
member that worsteds are more
durable than woolens but that
they also become shiny more
quickly, says Elizabeth M. Lippard,
instructor in clothing extension. -
On Miss Lippard's list, tweed is
the most durable of the woolens,
followed by hard-finished worsted
and serge. The bettpr grades of
stio suits are all wool (that is, 98
per cent wool with two per cent
allowance for pattern).
In suits 'costing over $25, Miss
Lippard claims the cu s tomer
should look for the following items:
wellfinished, generous seams,
deep, well-made pockets, smooth
linings of good material, carefully
made buttonholes, buttons firmly
sewed on by hand, and neat hems.
