It is trtui that Stockings ought to wear better
Vfcftn'tf- lAnat-' tnan iiiey oo. nic nose we sen, it sometimes
UOIl I nUflhi seems, ought to wear better. Customers occasion
ally say that no stockings wear as well as they used to do. Of course, the trouble
is partly in the Stocking and partly in the wearer.
Women don't wear as heavy Hose as they once wore. They say: "Give
me something thinner; 1 can't wear those thick ones." And, of course, the ma
terial is not in them to give service. We would not expect the same service
from a lace and broadcloth gown, yet we do something similar in our reasoning
'Then many require that their Hose lit like a glove. If they were to buy a
half size larger they would add much to the life of a pair of 1 lose. A good deal
depends on the treatment given a Stocking. If it is pulled on, twisted on, jerked
on, or worn with ill-fitting shoes, even a firm Stocking will soon give way.
It must be said, too, that dyes which are too strong will ruin a Stocking.
That is where the customer is powerless, and it is where we are powerless as

would not have the old gray-touched Hose and they can't have guaranteed wear
