Of course we are and we are right when we offer you U74uppenheimer Clothes to fulfill your individual wants. Kuppenheimer young men's styles are designed by young men. They know how a young man wants his lapel to set-that he wants his coat to fit snug and a high waist line to set off his shoulders. That is why when you wear a Kuppenheimer Suit you have a feeling of confidence and righteousness in style that "bucks" you up. Another thing---Kuppenheimer Styles are not obtained with a pressing iron, but are supported by fabrics that hold the style and give long wear. It will be well worth your while to come in and try on a Kuppenheimer Suit and make comparisons. We'll leave it entirely to you. As an introductory special we feature for Fri day and Saturday a regular $25.00 Kuppenheimer Suit for $2000 GROSNER'S, .113 GROSN R'Sq a.
