The slim line in slacks takes over

Biggest single trend of '55 in men's clothing is the natural slim line from head to heel. This clean, straight cut completely replaces the rippling roominess of yesteryear's sportswear - puts your full-cut slacks among the family antiques. The time is ripe. Put on this lean, attractive look in dress slacks and inexpensive washable pants. You'll find that the good buy in any price bracket is equipped with the equally streamlined Talon trouser zipper.
