If they are auited to conditions here? <sW?* lfruetlng to hear at an early dale; and hoping"to be able to enter into negotiation??, that will. b?a_of mutual benefit to both aldea, *e are, Getitl-amen, It has been a question for us to decide; should we negotiate with Japan to sell our enormous yardage of woolens and trimmings in storage at a handsome profit and retire from the tailoring business, or should we continue to let Washington derive the benefit of our stock which we bought when woolens were selling so much lower than they are today that our prices are conservatively marked about one-half the prices charged by other first-class tailors. The temptation was great when the buyers from Japan made us an offer to purchase our entire yardage of woolens and trimmings in storage, and also that on display in our showrooms, at about 300 per cent profit spot cash, and even that enormous profit was much less than we could duplicate them for in today's market. Our decision is to let our Washington customers have them and Have them at the old prices, which permits us t? continue to tailor your clothes to order from $35 to $75, giving you the finest woolens and trimmings from the best mills at home and abroad in an endless variety of beautiful patterns which are sure to please the man of most fastidious taste. We have sufficient yardage of these fme materials contracted for and in our storage rooms to supply our trade until the spring of 1921. We have pledged ourselves to our customers and the men of Washington to sell our entire stock at these prices no matter how much higher the prices of woolens may go and no matter what the labor conditions may be. A? Our shops are exceptionally well organized with a force of the finest skilled men tailors obtainable. These men are loyal to us, giving us a full 100 per cent production under the profit-sharing plan. Incidentally our customers derive the benefit by dealing with a firm which is so fortunate in having an organization of tailors operating under this principle. The W. M.
