Fuithcrmore we guarantee the same all-wool

cist of producing an all wool suiL or overcoat.
The Scotch Woolen Mills who hardle our tailor
igusiness would be justified in asking of their
n yiarv dealers an advance in price, but they have
decided NOT to raise their prices, realizing that
the tremendous increaise in their present large
volume of business will more than nrke up for
the sacrifiice in profit.
We~ are heartily in accord with the Scotch Woolen
Wils policy, therefore you can come to this store
and have your measure taken for a strictly all
wool suit and you will not be asked to pay a single
crnt more than the regular standard price --no less
than $15 -no more than $20.
