Doane, Camouflage Clothing Camouflage clothing looks like what it is not. It is an imitation of something that is real. It is "store window cloth ing" fairly good for display purposes, but not built to stand the rigid test of wear. It is sometimes hard to distinguish between art fully camouflaged clothing, made from cotton adulter ated fabrics, and real clothing made of all wool. There is a way of knowing. i The Leopold Morse Co. and the Hart Schaffner & Marx label in your clothes is a guarantee of all wool fabrics. You want this kind of clothes because they are real economy they wear longer and hold their shape and color-newness. Leopold Morse Co. and Hart Schaffner & Marx clothes offer a genuine investment opportunity, backed by the Honor Pledge of "the store with a Conscience" that is your guarantee of better values, better mer chandise and better service. This Spring, practice sane clothes economy. Figure your clothes expense by the year rather than by the suit.
