That's the only way to describe them they are simply , marvelous when con
sidered in the light of present scarcity of wool. You'll feel like taking your
hat off to them. Just think of an all-wool blue serge suit for $15.00 in these
days. At $17.00 the famous Styleplus all-wool line and at $25.00
and $30.00 suits that would be extraordinary even on a normal
market. Our buying advantages and our low selling expense ex
plain how we can do this. However these unusual values are lim
ited to stock on hand. -We cannot duplicate them. We urge you
to buy NOW for your own advantage. Buy two suits at these
prices they will pay you big dividends. Overcoats cn same basis,
but don't delay your selection. You are welcome to look or buy.
