rHE way to smart dress lies not through an
extravagant expenditure of money., or a visit
to scores of stores, or the inspection of hun
dreds of garments. Quite to the contrary, the
smartness and style sought for by most women are achieved by con
centrating on one store whose reputation is above reproach, arid
whose modes, materials and manner type the most advanced ideas.
And, how will you recognize this store? Simply look for the name,
Exclusive Ladies', Misses'
and Children's Store is Ready
Kerns' Suits, Coats and Cape-Coats are styled with that wonderful
ingenuity and art possessed by only a few designers. Every gar
ment is man-tailored by experts, from a timely fabric luxuriant,
pronounced or restrained, but in perfect harmony with the mode and
the moment. Probably there are no tailors outside of the STYUS
craft Shops who can achieve such nicety of curve and contour
such velvety smoothness such uniform and perfect workmanship,
who can so beautifully "bring out" that ultimate degree of style
value coveted by the fashionable woman.
It has taken months of constant effort it has taken hundreds of
skilled fingers to make it possible and easy for you to wear Kerns'
garments, but the opportunity is now yours.
There are scores of alluring Kerns' modes in Suits, Coats and Oape-Ooatj the "creme
de la creme" for you to glance at in our store. Come in at your flrBt convenience.
You know that the European war has al
ready made inroads into the American
purses. From day to day prices are being
advanced on various commodities due in
part or altogether to war influence. To
be of fullest service this store will not
raise prices on fabrics or articles made
abroad that we have on hand now. Until
the last yard or piece of imported articles
now on hand is sold our regular prices
prevail. This is but living up to this
store's high ideal of a Public Service In
stitution and of being a most helpful factor
in household economics.
