"Why, Macy's Is as Much a
Man's Store as a Woman's!"
An old customer of ours said this the other day a man whose experience
of Macy's Clothing and Outfitting went all the way back to the purchase at
Macy's of his first little suit in the size.
This customer has been Macy-clothed all his life, and every time he comes
here he realizes more fully that Macy's specialized departments devoted to the
outfitting of men, young men and boys cater to their needs in just as compre
hensive and efficient a scale a the Women's and Misses' Department in their
With access to (he same sources of supply, we offer merchandise of the
same calibre as that carried by the best specialty stores. The only marked
difference is a price difference, in which Macy prices invariably run from 10
to 15 under those charged elsewhere. On some of the finer grades of mer
chandise the savings effected by buying at Macy's are often considerably
greater than these.
We cannot describe or illustrate one'hundredth part of our comprehensive
stock of seasonable meri's wear, but here are a few examples of your more

pensive. Here are the facts boiled down to a minimum: Macy's stock
nine models in bhoes, six ot which are designed for younger men
and three on more conservative lines for older men who affect arch
supports, cushion soles, etc.
We have six prices, ranging from $3.49 to $6.49. Our best
values we consider to come in the $3.96 line.v among which are a
patent-leather button Shoe, a tan. a gunmetal lace Shoe, made on
a custom last, with invisible eyelets, etc.
In every Shoe that Macy stocks one, may see the style of the
moment the English cut Macy Shoes have the receding toe, the
low, broad heel and the austere "lines of the typical English walking
In particular we call attention to a novelty not shown as yet
elsewhere on broadway a high Shoe with a 2-inch flexible cuff,
which can be turned up or down. This Shoe is cut on a last which
makes it suitable for business and ordinary wear with the cuff folded
down, while the stout oak leather sole, running right through, makes
it an ideal storm boot with the cuff turned up the leg. The price
