ANDERSON. **. O
MEN'S WEAR !
It isn't for to-day/to-morrow or next week that you buy
a Suit of Clothes. Clothes are bought to serve?the longer
the better. *
The better the Clothes the better they serve, and the
better they look, even to the last day.
You can't get service or appearance out of poor work
manship. A thrown-together, pressed-up Suit may look ail
fight for a week ; then comes the time of kicks and dissatis
for which we have secured the agency, is made to serve
long and well ; to keep its shape ; to look dressy as long as
you want to wear it.
That's the kind of Clothing it pays to buy.
IT'S MADE RIGHT.
It's almost an investment to buy it, for a long-wearing
Suit pays you back more than its cost.
