other magnificent Suit offering:!
Venetian and Covert Suits $12 each
It's spoiling you to offer such suit values as we are now offering. It leads you to
expect phenomenal things at Watt's at all times. It puts you "all out of sorts" ,to even
look^at other stores' suits. Nevertheless, be the consequence what it may,
Tomorrow's Suit offering is truly phenomenal!
And this is what we have to say about them :?
They are made of excellent Venetian and Covert Cloth in the newest shade of castor, cadet blue and
gray. The double-breasted, new spade front jacket is lined with heavy twilled silk; has four clusters of but
tons in front; two buttons on the back; two lower and one upper pocket; seams are lapped and tailor-stitched.
The snug-fitting skirt has the new Gaylor back; side vent, closing with snap fasteners; stylish overskirt or
tunic effect of same material, finished with four rows of stitching; percaline lined; corduroy bound and has a
12-inch band of stiffening*around the bottom.
$18 would be cheap for them. Instead, we ask but $12.
