BLAZERS

You don't have to be a musical comedy man or own a yacht to follow this year's most versatile clothing revival—the blazer

In 1928 a group of Columbia University students, "not to be mistaken for professors or ordinary mortals," decided to wear "Korrect Kolumbia Kampus Kut Koats with King's Krown emblems"—in plain English, blazers. They got the idea from England where, since Queen Victoria's day, the striped blazer has stood for Old School and Team, and the blue flannel blazer announces, by its brass buttons and chest medallion, one's Club or Guard Company. This year, prompted by such be-blazered Broadway hits as The Boy Friend, blazers are back again, as colorful as ever when worn with "ice cream pants," trousers in every color known to Howard Johnson.
