In days of old a man's rank was proclaimed by his
apparel/There was a different sort of rig for every title of
nobility, every grade oi freeman. Nowadays there is
but one style of dress for all classes and conditions?ap
parently?but there is a vast difference in Clothes. There
is really no reason why any man should not dress as well
as the best. If it were a question of expense it might
make a difference.
Any man can afford to wear "Minter" Clothes,
and any man who wears Minter Clothes may
rest assured that while others may dress as
well, none can dress better. Now you can buy Minter
Clothes for less than you pay elsewhere. We are giving
everyone an opportunity to try one of our suits at prices
that speak for themselves.
