I take violent exception to a sentence in a letter published in your Jan. 20 issue, signed A. G. Ellis, M.D.: "First, how could anyone be elegant in a pair of those inelegant, nondescript outmoded golf trousers?" Nondescript, inelegant, outmoded indeed!!! Where has Dr. Ellis been all of his life? I know a few who look elegant in them, H.R.H. the Duke of Windsor, Jimmy McLarnin [see cut], MacDonald Smith, Gene Markey, and several million English golfers and hikers. I personally possess 15 suits with golf trousers and wear them in Hollywood, at every appropriate occasion.
