1960S FASHION AND MORE

Other fashion innovations with definite impact were the "Nehru," or "Mao," jacket, cut with a standup collar and worn buttoned up to the neck; capes in varied lengths and fabrics, most often with an outercoat; the walking suit, consisting of a three-quarter-length swagger or country coat, usually in a beefy solid-color fabric and lined in a bold plaid or checked tweed, which often spilled onto the collar and lapels, and with country slacks in the lining pattern; disposable paper fashions in shirts, robes, underwear, and beach clothes; furs for men (the most opulent being a $6,000 mink trench coat, belted and epauletted in leather); and the loincloth swim suit. Kilts were touted for their comfort, and at least one designer gave the potential wearer his choice of wearing underwear or even, in true Scottish tradition, going au natural. Last but by no means least, was a shortcut to Acapulco or Miami Beach, in a tube. Different manufacturers gave it different names: After Shave Tan, Tan Bronzer, Bronzing Gel, and so on. But no matter what the name, men were buying it or having their wives do so, and it would seem that, along with hair sprays and rinses and facial pickup masks, it's here to stay.
