can give 20.00 to 25.00 Dollars
for a suit of Kirschbaum clcthes
and derive 50.00 or 75.00 Dol
lars worth of good impression
from them. That is the great
secret about Kirschbaum clothes
which men all over the country
are beginning to learn. The
clothes are cut the same as the
fashionable London and New
York tailo-s cut theirs; they are
made from fine toned fabrics
and tailored almost by hand.
They cost yon no more than any
other make. But there is .dis
