Best Suit News Yet
Gentlemen, here are Suit bargains that ring real and true. They stand for actual
money saving. All told, there are five hundred; they represent a special purchase made
after our Fall orders had been placed. Five hundred suits involve a goodly lump of money
—not many stores would have dared such a purchase on top of the regular Fall stocks and
at the present advanced stage of the season. It was a risky venture. But prices were our
temptations. The maker wanted money—and he wanted it pretty dashed quick. He
1 made the figures so seducively low that we could not resist.
Saks’ is an out-of-the-rut store—it is unusual. We’d charge $18 and $25 for these
suits if we were content to remain the mediocre class. We’ve fixed the prices at $15 and
$20. The garments are all that any man can desire—handsome, dressy and excellently
tailored. It is the luckiest chance of the season—best suit news yet! The shipment came
last week—will be gone next week. Hurry! There’s a certain fable about a worm and a
bird that chimes in admirably appropos here.
Suits at $15—If you buy you will have
saved $3. Look how they are made. Per
fect! Every detail shows painstaking care.
Slip into one of these suits, note how the
coat “sets,” note how the trousers “hang.”
Verily, the manufacturer had you in mind
when he made it.
Fabrics—Cassimeres, Serges, Tweeds
Cheviots. Black, blue and scores of taste
ful mixtures; heavy, warmful woolen
weights. Business Suits par excellence. If
we were inclined to advertising exaggera
tion we would say these suits are worth
$20. However, $18 is a fair valuation.
At $20—Can't talk of these suits with
out dragging in an augument against the
tailors. They will charge you $35 for suits
no better—nor as good. Coats are made
over an interlining framework—that in
sures permanent shape. Ever see a baker
“knead” bread dough? The collars on these
coats are worked much the same way. The
tailors pull, pinch, press, “knead” the
fabrics into shape—mind you, by hand.
Cassimeres, Serges, Cheviots, Fancies
and black and blue. Imported.fabrics made
by an English mill whose woolens are fam
ous for wear. Elsewhere $25, worth $25.

Misses' Shoes, $2.00 and $2.50
I Did she catch cold during the rainy days? Likelier than not the cause was in
the shoes. Walking to and from school over Birmingham’s mud-a-mized streets
requires thoroughly damp-proof footwear. Saks sells just such shoes—and sells
\ them cheaply. We’ve been painstaking and careful in selecting the stock. The
I styles are sensible and suitable for growing and developing feet—$2.00 and $2.50
are the popular prices. The variety is large—vici kid, plain kid and patent leather,
dull and self tops, in lace, blucher and button. The leathers are strong and service
able, yet they easily yield and mould to the toot shape.
