There are three ways of dressing
good, bad and indifferent.
It all depends on the price you pay,
your own ideas, and the tailors who
do the work.
$25 to $55 is a lot of money for bad
or indifferent clothes, but placed in
the hands of the right tailor it means
a suit that is good.
If your inclination runs to that amount
we would like to do you the good
service of taking your measure.
