is in regard to our Union Underwear 5
for men. It may bo that you have
never become acquainted with this
kind of underwear, and therefore
don't appreciate its many advant
ages. Being one continuous piece from
top to bottom, there is no pulling or
sagging none of that uncomfortable
rolling up and bunching of the shirt
and drawer about the waist. There
is an evenness and perfection to the
fit that lends itself to the better ap
pearance of the outer garments. A
man said to us the other day, after
giving this kind of underwear a thor
ough trial, that he wouldn't wear any
other kind. Maybe you'll be just like
him if you investigate the rruitter.
