We defy any store to sell a suit equal in fit, style, tailoring, etc., etc., for less than $15 or $18. These are displayed in our windows. Gentlemen, take notice what the small sum of $9.95 buys at this shop. A real nifty Spring suit in worsteds and cassimers, with the new dip front, and peg trousers in the new green and tan shades, made first class, inside and out, for $9.25.
