the Acid Test
OU always find in your Clothcraft suit a
regularly signed, legal, binding guaran
ty that the suit is pure wool.
That guaranty could not be given if the makers and we
ourselves did not absolutely know the goods to be pure wool.
This is the test: Pure wool boiled in caustic potash complete
ly dissolves. If there is ny cotton in the mixture, it remains.
Every piece of cloth coming from the mills must be able to
stand this test before it is accepted for Clothcraft.
Wool lasts. Wool keeps its stylish shape and color. When yoti
can have all-wool guaranteed at $10 to $25 it is foolish to take anything
less. Then come in today and pick out your Clothcraft suit or overcoat.
