AND SO HAVE THE PRICES ON MERCHANT TAILORING
I have just returned from a trip east, where I have carefully studied the problem of merchant tailoring,
and I have come to the conclusion that new methods must be adopted to make a success. As time changes,
methods of doing business must change. In order to sell goods well, they must be bought right; it requires
CASH I MUST HAVE.
Therefore, I appeal to you for help, and anyone of you who quickly responds will be well paid. I will help
you pay for your suit if you help me pay my bill for goods. Therefore. I have instituted a tremendous
slaughter of prices. For 30 days I will make suits for $24.50, $28.50 and $32.50, cash. 8ome of these are
$45 suit values. If you desire, you may bring a tailor to judge the goods as to tr.s value, quality, etc.
I do my own cutting, and will guarantee satisfaction. Both my money and my reputation are at stake.
Come at once and get your first choice.
