    Background: THE TALENTS OF FRENCH COUTURIER PIERRE CARDIN BECOME AVAILABLE TO BRITONS TOMORROW (THURSDAY) WHEN 400 MEN'S SHOPS UP AND DOWN THE COUNTRY OFFER FIVE BASIC SUIT STYLES TO THOSE WHO "WANT TO BE WITH IT".AND TO KEEP WITHIN THE ESTIMATED MARKET THE PRICES WILL RANGE FROM 15 GUINEAS TO GBP34.

    ESSENCE OF THE 'CARDIN LOOK' IS A LONG, LEAN ELEGANCE; JACKETS ARE LONGER WITH A FLARED AND WAISTED EFFECT ACHIEVED BY USING DEEP (ALMOST TO THE WAIST) VENTS EITHER AT THE SIDES OR AT THE CENTRE BACK.SLEEVES AND TROUSERS ARE NARROW, AND SOME OF THE SLEEVES ARE FLARED AT THE CUFF.

    THE SUITINGS BEING OFFERED RANGE FROM A LIGHTWEIGHT 10 OZ CLOTH TO WINTERWEIGHT 17/18 OZ; MIDDLEWEIGHTS ARE PARTICULARLY WELL REPRESENTED.ON THE WHOLE THE PIERRE CARDIN SUIT WILL HAVE MORE HAND TAILORING THAN IS CUSTOMARY IN A SUI OBTAINABLE FROM A BRITISH MULTIPLE TAILOR.(IN AGREEING TO DESIGN FOR NEVILLE REED AND JOHN TEMPLE, CARDIN WAS INSISTENT THAT THERE BE NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN STYLE DETAIL.)
    THE FINAL MODEL-SUIT WAS FLOWN SPECIALLY TO LONDON FOR THE SHOW AT THE SAVOY HOTEL - IT WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE IN BRITAIN THIS SEASON BUT WAS PRESENTED AS AN EXAMPLE OF FUTURE TREND.

    AS A JOINT MANAGING DIRECTOR OF THE TWO STORES SAID: "WHERE IS FASHION BRED, / IN THE HEART OR IN THE HEAD" AND ADDED THAT "LIKE THE POET WE'RE STILL GUESSING".
