From ocean to ocean, from the Can
ada line to the tip of sunny Florida,
these clothes have made friends among
men who are clothes-wise and clothes
particular. They have won their way
on sheer merit of all-round superiority.
They are accepted authority on style as
the dictionary is accepted authority on
spelling. They have seen service in the
firing line of daily wear shoulder to
2 . Mlshoulder with all other makes and have
piled up the proofs that they out-wear
1s ,all others, and hold their crisp lines
long after competitor's have sagged
and un-shaped themselves.
From the moment the pattern is laid
on the material until the last stitch of
tailoring is taken, the dominating
thought and purpose is to make Society
Brand Clothes a brand of supreme
quality. They are for men through
whose minds flows the quality thought
-men who know the folly of buying
clothes made to sell at a cheap price
men who know that quality always
groves most economical in the end. To
you men who know quality we extend
a pressing invitation to come here and
see quality stand out of these clothes
as clearly as the colors.
