It is really surprising to see men delight in our showing of fine clothes; we take it as a matter of course that such a show ing is an essential part of a high grade clothing business; but the men of this city and county look upon our display as an innovation and we're glad they do. We've endeavored to provide all t6 favored fabrics all the sensible styles for you, avoiding any garment that might be classed as "Bizarre" or over-extreme, inas much as the unconven tional styles that we have seen lack permanence of style values. Our selections are from the foremost makers of strictly high grade cloth ing and vh6se styles possess a definite and positive style value un questioned and unques tionable. See Our Show Window.
