Here mean more than the mere figures might imply. All houses
arc selling suits at those prices, but no other house pretends to sell
the suits we do at that money. In all that helps make a suit as
good as can be, these suits excel. In the material, in trimmings and
workmanship and in the tailoring of them nothing can compare
with them that you'll find elsewhere at the price. And all we want
you to do is to see them before you buy your spring suit.
Not pants made of materials you can see through, but strongly
woven Cassimeros, made up as good and strong working pants, and
only 45c pair. Worth well, we'll let you say.
