.you Stylish Young
M en want that athletic
free-and-easy appearance,
Are we right? 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
