Who Want New Clothes
Yomr business is to find out where you can get the
best goods for the momey you are g-oiog- to spend. Our
bMsioess is to prove that this is the place.
Not with this advertisnoeot, nor, with any advertise
ment but with the goods.
With the good, sound, a3iwoo3 and tailored suits and
In the best quality fabrics that the woolen market
In the best fashion designs that the world knows
in the best taiiorins that the evnrfonrpri
workers of the best manufacturers can produce.
We believe we can prove to you with the goods
that we have this merchandise here better than you wi!3
find it eisewhere at the prices.
The reason being that we have been in the business
longer and ought to know more about it
Everything in our Men's Clothing Store is made
over OUR patterns, out of fabrics of OUR selection,
tailored OUR way and sold at OUR price not at any
price dictated by any manufacturer or by any agreement.
Men's clothes this year are good.
The pressure upon the manufacturers by some good
stores that cared more about good qualities and good
values than about bargain sales to advertise has
compelled an improvement in woolen cloths.
This means longer wearing suits and better fitting
suits. It means more for the money.
Now when assortments are at their best is a. better
time to inspect these goods than any other time will be.
