Country Paths

August 14, 1994|By Vida Roberts | Vida Roberts,Sun Fashion Editor

The country life can be comforting -- clear pasture vistas, th smell of grass, friendly creatures romping about. The scenes chase away the pressures and cares of the urban world.

Clothes for the country life are designed to move through a day that may start with a dawn ride and end with a sundowner at the local pub.

No wonder then, that rugged twills, tweeds and denims have become fashion's wardrobe staples; they move confidently through executive suites and dusty barns.

Some men arrange to live much of their lives outdoors -- whether by career choice or avocation -- and these clothes suit them fine.
