Some have great nesslthrnst
Upon them." SHAKPESARE.
But it's different with their clothes.
They are mostly born .without clothes.
Nearly all have clothes thrust upon
them when they are small, afterward
they have to achieve their clothes.
Some achieve good clothing and some
don't; it's owing to where they buy it.
Those who buy the London Clothing
Company's Clothing get the best. It is
easier, too, to achieve the London Com

are getting' weary of paying for the
name of having their clothes tailor
made when they can get them so much
better of us for a great deal less money.
The London Clothing Company has
achieved its reputation through intrin

People by its better values. We think
we have achieved the heighth of excel
