Resplendent Clothing.

If the ‘ Daily News ’ is to be trusted, the New York dude is “coming it strong” in the matter of personal adornment. In a late number the great London journal declares :

Young men in New York are getting transcendent in their dress. Not only are they wearing embroidered trousers, the embroidery running up the outside seam iu a strip about half au inch wide, but seed pearls are beginning to appear upon waistcoats, already elaborate with stitche.ry of silk. White corded silk and white satin are the most popular material for the garments themselves, especially for bridal waistcoats. Fink si'k is preferred for underwear and nocturnal attire. A Now Y’ork paper describes a nightshirt recently made to order by a New York outfitter for a Boston man. It is composed of white China silk, with cardinal-red collar and cuffs elaborately embroidered in white silk in a floral design. The bosom is pleated, each pleat having au embroidered vine wrought in gold running its entire length. A very advanced “ dude " is going to have a slight cord of gold to embellish the outer seams of his evening trousers. He is wearing apple-green silk corsets this season, sewed with pink, the color of the apple blossom. His outfitter makes quite an agreeable little sum of money yearly by selling the elaborately embroidered braces which this customer’s friends work for him. They seldom suit his exhjeant taste, so his “man” arranges about them with the outfitter, probably to the mutual satisfaction of both parties. As the ladies know nothing about it, their feelings cannot suffer. Another improvement ho is meditating concerns itself with the stockings and their fastenings. These things are very interesting, and add a new pleasure to life. It is well that a few men are content to devise new ideas about their own clothes, instead of trifling with such vanities as science and the arts, literature, politics, the welfare of mankind, or any small item of that sort.
