When this firm contemplated entering the clothing business we took into consideration every phase of the clothing situation We decided that a store
that would show nothing hut NEW MERCHANDISE each season must win out. We knew that it was a radical dcparture--that in the selling out of each
season's merchandise during that season would entail considerable loss. Yet we felt that what we lost at the end of each stason would he more than made up by
the prestage given an exclusive men's store showing noteing but new merchandise each season. We resolved to gain that prestage at any cost. These season end
sales are the result of that resolution. They have been successful beyond our expectations. Each sale has resulted in a thoroughclean up. What few garments
that have remained after the close of each season have been withdrawn from stock and disposed of to outsiders. This sale is one of the most successful lue have
yet held. It has been in force for the past three weeks. It covers practically every department. Many of the lines are about exhausted and it will be but a
short time until all must be withdrawn from sale. Therefore vie advise you to come at your earliest convenience. The merchandise is all new and the choicest
on the market and the reductions are immense.
