OLD CHAP, GIMME A LIFT ON THIS DERRICK"
By Jim Manee
Cheer up, men, especially working
men! Clothing styles areall set for
us for this coming season, thanks to
the Chicago Society of Merchant
A crew of men from that organi
zation met the other day and decided
on the following for our wardrobe:
Opera Cape, and
And now let's see how this outlay
will work out
In the morning dad gets up and
puts on his Morning Coat, struts
downstairs and eats his ham and
eggs and coffee. He then yanks (par
don, withdraws is betters) out his
bandana handkerchief, blots his face
and struts back upstairs.
He then dons his Afternoon Coat
(dad doesn't have to go to work until
6 m the morning) and slips on a pair
of overalls and takes his car down to
work. There is little difference what
car he takes Madison, North Clark,
Cottage Grove it's all the same. We
might add that his Afternoon Coat
fits very nicely over his soft blue
Arriving at his office, dad slips off
his Afternoon Coat and pulls on his
Golfing Coat There is nothing more
appropriate than a Golfing Coat for
dad's afternoon work. Taking his
trusty broom in hand he proceeds to
make three of Chicago's streets in
bogey before his office hours are over.
A short ride in his dump cart follows
and then he is ready for his home
ward journey. He, of course, changes
back to his Afternoon Coat again.
Supper is waiting! Dad slips on his
Evening Clothes before sitting down
to ham and cabbage.
Another change -and. dad is in an
Opera Cape and ready for the movie
show. He must-carry his Automobile
Raiment with him, as some kind
friend may pick him up when he
comes from the movie theater and
take him home.
And there you have it!
Chicago dads sure should appreci
ate some high-monkey-monks in the
clothing business laying out dressing
plans for them.
"Home, James! I've got on the
wrong wearing apparel."
