- WORKMEN'S DRESS. ENGLISH AND AMERICAN. Mr F. Maddison writes in "Labor Co-partnership": "At first sight the I American workman certainly looks' smarter than our artisans do. Prolj- ! ably the American tailor is mainly responsible for this. The cut of the cheap suits worn by the working classes are, in my opinion, miich su-, perior to those in England. The same . with the soft hats usually worn, j They give the. wearer a far more | 'dressy' look than, tho :cap and shape- ! less bowler hat'which are the head-' gear, of our workpeople. Tlie lighter apparel worn in summer may also j contribute to this effect, but, what- , ever-the cause, the result is a more ■ tastily-dressed workman in tho United States than here. To my minii' it is the greater personal pride which accounts for this, and there is j evidence of it in the use of overalls I and irloves whilst at work. During ( our three" week's*.'tour wo' saw more working men wearing these than could be seen' in this country in a year. ...
