-While we have enjoyed tho largest trade we
have ever had on light weight clothing, wc have
had---along with every ono else--some trouble ia
fitting. Not zn sizes, nor in a general way, but
in U?!e details and w?t?Saa cf & p?f??S fit
demanded by careful dressers. To be more
specific, light weight materials, however perfect
they were modeled, have been lacking in the
"hang" or "swing" about the shoulders; so much
so, inf act, that it has been impossible to fit every
man. To make ? long story short, we've been
successful in overcoming this thing, and we do it
without any appreciable increase in weight or
padding!-do it with a little 'V.w how" s3k
yoke and a special lining in the sleeves. It ia &

is ours, but bfccauoe ?tba Success and pleases
