1976: August Menswear report
The executive vested suit. Its traditional styling is exceptionally smart. Its price, $110.
This classic makes its fashion statement more strongly than ever with its contemporary cut, attention to tailoring, and, in this case, the unique fabric… Tom Seaver’s navy pinstripe is only one of the many stripes, solids and patterns available in larger Sears stores. Priced higher in Alaska and Hawaii.
Golden comfort shirts
August  Menswear report: The European accent expresses itself in a more flattering fit. $11.
This season, fashion focuses on shape and style. This shirt has both. It’s cut closer to the body, and has tapered darts sewn in the back. Style is underscored in the spread collar, drop yoke front, and patch pocket. Done in a handsome linen-look chambray, this cotton and polyester Perma Prest shirt comes in the mulberry shade Bob Griese is wearing, as well as sky blue, saddle, and light green.
The European look for men
October Menswear report: Our interpretation of the European look: Fresh, fashionable, very wearable
This is the European look that gained handsomely in Sears translation. Jackets are shaped, but not too severely; shirts are trim without being tight; trousers are cut slim on top rather than skinny. It’s the European look with a slight American accent. It’s the best of both worlds.
The 3 piece ensemble. $75.
It’s as versatile as it is fashionable because the vest reverses to match either the jacket or trousers. In addition to the cocoa and tan combination Gale Sayers is wearing, color choices include green and tan/navy. Available during October in larger Sears stores.
Kings Road sportswear, $14 to $25.
The styling says it all. And speaks very fashionably in Bob Griese’s jacket and slacks. Choose desert tan or black. The $14 shirt, $18 slacks and $25 jacket are woven texturized polyester. Available during October in larger Sears stores.
Tailored-stripe shirts for men
Tom Seaver is wearing out new tailored stripe in one of the brown variations; there are others in blue. To complement these cotton and polyester Perma Prest shirts, choose coordinated neckwear at $6.50.
