COMPARISON Tells the
The proper, most satisfactory and convincing way to form a
correct conclusion as to value is by comparison, It is im
possible to judge from newspaper quotations. For this rea
son we ask you to COMPARE our line of $4.35 Mens Suits
others advertise at $4.45; our line of $5.00 Men s Suits with
those others advertise at $7.50; our line of $6.50 Mens Suits
with those others advertise at $10.00; our line of 9.90 Men's
Suits with those others advertise at $13.50. COMPARISON
TELLS THE TALE.
If the quality, fit, workmanship and trimming is not better and the price lower than that of any
other;dealer,1don't buy. All we ask that you compare-nothing can be fairer.
