Lane Bryant 21-23 W. 38th St.: Continue To-Morrow (Monday) the Great WAR TIME SALE Which Offers Men, Young Men and Youths Every $22.50, $25, $28 and $30 Overcoat and Suit in Stock At H 752 WITHOUT A SINGLE EXCEPTION This is no special purchase for sale purposes, no season-end accumulation of odd sizes and left over stock and no rag-tag collection of clothes of doubtful pedigree but one of the most momentous stock disposal movements in the history of the Clothing Business; it offers Clothing of Known Merit and Highest Reputation at Remarkable Reductions. It has been arranged by us for the single purpose of disposing, as quickly as possible, of clothing pur chased by us in anticipation of a rising market; clothing which has not moved with the speed to which Brill stores are accustomed, because weather conditions have been highly unseason able and because more than a million men are wearing Uncle Sam's Khaki and have no earthly use for civilian clothes. We choose therefore to "Get from Under" and offer what we honestly believe, and what the past days' selling clearly indicates is The Greatest Clothing Sale New York Has Ever Known Good Things For All Men Even For Big Men, Stout Men and Tall Men.
