At super-value prices
One does not have to be a judge of values to
appreciate the worth of the Overcoats in this su
pre-value event. One doesn't have to be an expert
on clothes to appreciate the extra quality. That
is apparent.
The fact that both quality and value are com
bined to the maximum simplifies selling such Over
coats. Practically every worth-while fabric, color
and style is included in one of the greatest assort
ments we have shown in recent years. Every gar
ment is truly a super-value.
