For many years the Pacific Coast, and especially the
Northwest, has felt the need of a wholesale tailoring house where at least
part of the thousands of orders now being sent to Chicago and New York
could be made up.
Each year fully six million dollars is sent East from
the West for made-to-measure clothing. Almost every store in the various
towns have sample outfits and are doing a good business along this line.
To keep part of this money at home and to supply the
trade in much less time than is required when orders are sent East, we have
at Third and Stark streets, here in Portland, put in the finest daylight elec
tric equipped tailor shops west of Chicago. "
Seventy-five tailors are now at work and during the
" .11 season fully two hundred experienced people will be employed work
ing on individually tailor-made suits. ,
To keep these shops running the largest portion of
the orders will come from our agencies now established in the leading
towns in Oregon, Washington, California, Montana, Idaho, Nevada, Colo
rado, Utah and Wyoming. . "
To care for the city trade in Portland our downstairs
store, formerly occupied by the Brownsville- Woolen Mill Store, has been
fitted up as a retail tailor and display salesroom, where several hundred
different suitings from Oregon, Eastern and European woolen mills are
now on display and suits are being made to order at
$18! $20, $22i $25, $30, $35, $40
We invite every man in Portland, and especially the
ones who are interested in seeing the clothing industry, which is the larg
est manufacturing industry in the world, established here.
Gome and see these shops in action. It means a pay
roll of nearly two hundred thousand dollars added to Portland's industries.
