; -never in our business career have we been able to offer our trade suchsuperior
overcoats as we are now showing. Fashion's edict admits of numerous styles; each as correct
in style as the other, and each style has its patrons. We spared no effort to secure the
best coats that experience, skill and money could make and if you want to wear , an overcoat
that will place you above the level of the crowd we ask your attention.
the Chesterfield Coat, 45 to 48 inches in length, in black, brown, oxford and neat
mixtures, is always a great favorite. This is the ideal coat for the conservative dresser, or
middle aged man who wants a handsome coat but not an extreme style. We have this pop
ular coat in numerous grades' some are serge lined, some elegantly silk lined all are hand
some and reasonable in price $15 to $40.

the Auto is an ideal coat for the man who drives an auto, and while it is built for
the auto, it is equally serviceable as a raincoat or a dress coat; The fabrics are cravenetted
and mostly finer materials. Cut to button close to the neck and slashed at the side in order to
make pockets accessible. It if constructed along modern lines and will be appreciated by
every motorist--$12.50 to $25.
-the Raincoat of today is a coat of many functions. It answers for an overcoat,
is a great protection in cool weather, gives-a man a well dressed appearance and affords a cer"
tain degree of waterproof protection on rainy days. The models are loose and of a generous
length. They come in a variety of fabrics in tan, olive, gray mixtures and black. We want to
add a word of caution. Look well to the; fabric in buying a raincoat. The cheapest material can
be as easily cravenetted as the best, but a cheap rain coat is nothing short of an abomination.
