THE WONDER how we can make a suit of clothes for the average sized man for $15.00 and

KNOW HOW, BRAINS AND EXPERIENCE, are the three greatest factors of our suc

goods, we buy hundreds, -where they buy one piece of a kind, we buy 20 pieces, etc. We
have our own shops, run to a system, and employ the best skilled labor.
