Our Men's Shoes This Spring
Reflect Individuality and Style
but not the Increased Cost of Leather
Our present retail prices are close to present wholesale costs
Tt is a fart that a great many of orrr Men's Shoes
this Spring are selling at present factory costs.
This, of course, is an achievement, not an accident.
We foresaw the inevitable rise in leather and arc
now exercising options secured before the present
advances. Thus, we are selling most of our Spring
Shoes at present factory figures. And even where
there is a price idvance at all, it is mon negligible
than noticeable.
But the pertinent point is
wr select the lasts and the leathers, putting art
into the models and improving the tissue of the
leather by a special procevs in tanning the hides.
