Our selection of new fashions for spring reflects a shrinking world. The private plane shown on this Arizona ranch can bring its passengers from winter chill to desert heat in one routine trip. This quick change in climate makes clothing a special problem. Hence the new suits, worn by a couple arriving at the Rose Tree Ranch high in the Mustang range, are of fabrics which bridge the gap between winter and summer as easily as the swiftly flying plane. Neither the souffl� tweed of the woman's coat nor the Dacron-and-worsted gabardine of the man's weighs more than nine ounces to the yard. Their colors, lemon yellow and bronzed olive, are in the season's favorite golden range.
On the pages which follow are more aspects of this spring's season-bridging clothes. Golden-hued leathers—chamois and su�de—are favorites not only down on the ranch but everywhere outdoors. The odd sport jacket, a man's most versatile garment, has been taken up by women for golf and riding and is worn with the same added dash of varicolored sport shirts and foulard scarves. The man's pullover golf sweater, also in the gold of the season, has replaced the cardigan at last.
For spring's favorite participant sport, east or west, there are ever better, ever newer golf jackets, shirts, shorts, skirts and slacks—all designed to make the swing easier, if not truer.
High in the Mustangs, Models Leone Vernet and Jason Will alight from Cessna's new 310d to be met by Rose Tree Ranch's Head Wrangler Buzz Cline. Her maize wool tweed coat ($120) by Aquascutum (Kaufmann's, Pittsburgh; Lord & Taylor ), is worn with belted sweater ($35) by Korrigan Lesur, Mr. John hat. Jason's Dacron-and-worsted gabardine suit ($90) is worn with yellow shirt ($8.50), Paisley tie ($5), a silk pocket square ($4), all Brooks Brothers. Hat is from Thomas Begg ($15).These pictures were taken in Arizona, and most of the clothes on this and subsequent pages are at Goldwater's, Phoenix, in addition to the other stores named.
Bell-bottom pants like a Mexican cowboy's and a lace-trimmed shirt are Texan Jo Decker's design for cowgirls. Deborah Dixon wears complete outfit at 49ers Ranch in Tucson ($50 pants, $35 shirt, $30 hat, $45 Justin boots: all Neiman-Marcus ).
Yellow, a big color for spring, is worn by Frank Gerrity at Tucson Country Club. Crew-neck pullover is of Shetland ($16.50, Brooks Bros. ). Golf slacks are wash-and-wear blend of Vycron and cotton ($12, Seven Seas: Wallach's). Champion glove ($4), Elster hat ($4).
Two vacationers combine Eastern-cut jackets with Western-cut pants on an Arizona ride. Deborah wears hunter's-pink leather jacket ($90, Bonnie Cashin for Sills: Saks Fifth Ave., New York; Jax, Beverly Hills). Her ranch pants are corduroy ($21.50, Miller's, New York). Frank's Shetland sport jacket is checked in maroon, gray and white ($65, M. Sigel: Mark, Fore & Strike, Florham Park, N.J.). Pants are whipcord ($10.50, Levi Strauss).
From the air to overland
The coats below have a fine regard for spring's caprices. They are topcoat weight and water-repellent. Both can adapt to quick climatic changes: Jason's gabardine has a removable liner, Leone's corduroy trench coat is lined in green gingham check to match her gingham shirtwaist. These and the ranch-country clothes shown on the following pages are as useful outdoors as Studebaker's new Overlander, the camping truck shown on the next page.
