Skillful Tailors are not all conscientious. Conscien
tious Tailois are not all Good Tailors. Durable clothes
don't always possess the right kind of style. Stylish clothes
don't always possess durability. It takes a great combina
tion of things to produce the kind of clothes you should
wear. Our reputation is your warranty for expecting all
these good qualities in the clothes we make. Our new Fall
and Winter Woolens are all in, ani just now is a splendid
time to make selections. Come and see the new styles. If
we make your clothes, you'll be dressed as well as the next
man, regardless of who he may be,
