Men's Spring Overcoats, Rain or Shine, $15 to $25
The splendid qualities of these coats are most noticeable in such varied weather as we're having now. If it's clear and
bright these garments are fine to keep out the early spring chill. If it's "good weather for ducks" raining pitchforks
these stylish coats, mind you, will keep you dry. The pure wool fabrics of which they are made are in no wise injured
by the process which renders them waterproof. As to their making: the tailor who betters them if there's one who
can will have to "go some!"
