Snellenburg Clothes
for Christmas
a gift to yourself or to some one else, nothing would
ease more than a good suit or overcoat. The pleasure
—would be manifold if Snellenburg Clothes are chosen.
In them you get naught but the best—best fabrics, best
tailoring, best wear—and you will find the cost less than you
would pay elsewhere for clothes probably not so good.
Why? Because of our vast purchasing power and the
operation of our own factory, which enables us to bring the
garments direct to you, thereby saving about 25 per cent—
and maybe more—which usually goes in the middleman's
pocket. Remember, then, buy your Christmas "togs" at
