Clothes don't make
a man, but
Many a man owes his success to the fact that he is
particular about his personal appearance. First im-
pressions often determine a man's future standing
and a good appearance materially assists in making
a good impression.
Hence the importance of selecting clothes with
care; of selecting styles which best suit your type of
figure; of obtaining a perfect fit.
When you buy clothing here you are served
by intelligent salesmen who study your par
ticular needs and sell you apparel that
meets your individual requirements.
That isn't all; you get full value for every dollar
you spend. Style, fit, quality and workmanship is .
always A number one. Don't take our word for it.
