THE Men's Section in the new Lord
dr Taylor Building is a store within
a store not merely a men's furnishing
counter. You can enter by a special
men's entrance on 38th Street, make
your purchases, be shaved and mani
cured, change your clothing, if you
like, and leave without passing through
any of the departments where women's
goods are sold.
Rapid service is the keynote of the Men's Section.
All merchandise goes directly to men packers on the
basement mezzanine, by means of dumb Waiters from
the selling counters. Packages to be taken are promptly
returned by the same means. Cash registers facilitate
making change.
The Men's Barber Shop and Manicuring Parlor, in
the mezzanine basement directly beneath the Men's
Furnishing Section, is equipped with electrical shampoo
ing and massaging apparatus of the latest and' most im
proved types. The hygienic methods and devices used
are under the supervision of the Lord 6- Taylor staff of
physicians and trained nurses.
Men living out of town will appreciate the conven
ience of a suite of private dressing rooms, in which cus
tomers may change from day to evening clothes, having
the former sent home without charge, if desired.
On the fourth floor is a new section of especial in
terest to men. It is devoted entirely to apparel and acces
sories for motoring. Connected with it a the New Jer
sey Automobile License Bureau the only place in the
state where N. J. license plates and drivers' licenses
may be obtained.
The Young Men's and Boys' Clothing sections are also
on the fourth floor. Other departments of interest to men
are the Men's Shoe Section, tne Men's "Onyx" Hosiery
Section, the Travel Bureau, the Theatre Ticket Office,
the Candy Counter and the Cut Flower and Plant Shop ;
and the series cf attractive rooms cn the I Oth floor
gg where Luncheon and Afternoon Tea will be served. IJ3S;
