because the preparation it any

not "ethical" to prescribe an

To enable men on their way to business
to take advantage of this sale, that sec

Broadway, corner 8th St., known as
The New Store for Men
Will open tomorrow morning at 7..5
Invites 905 Men
To Celebrate with It Tomorrow the
First Anniversary of
The New Kind of
Clothing Store for Men
Sorry we have to limit the invitation, but 905 suits are all
we could get together at the special price quoted below. It was
essential that every inch of cloth must be ALL-WOOL and of
good quality, pattern neat, workmanship thorough, and the
cost within the figure which would permit us to sell at a price
the workingman can afford to pay today.
For this New Store was established to carry out in new
form a more than 50-year old Wanamaker idea
to sell to men who must economize,
guaranteed clothing at the cost of the cheap,
trashy kind with which New York is flooded.
And on this occasion we must do even a little better than
usual to mark our appreciation of the splendid support men
yes, and their wives, mothers, sisters and sweethearts, who buy
much of the clothing for the family, and who know how to
save have given us during the year.
For we have done business while others have languished.
We have grown stronger while others have gone into
the hands of receivers.
And yet there is no mystery about it. Give a man a square
deal, and he is your friend. Try to trick him. He will resent it.
The Wanamaker idea is to give the square deal to the
man who has little as well as to the man who has much.
