WHAT'S THE PRICE OF A GOOD
SUIT OF CLOTHES ?
WENTY-FIVE dollars. You can buy our clothes
for less than that $20,, $ 1 8, $15; you can pay more
that-we have very fine clothes at $30, $35, $30.
But $25 is a good average price; most men who appreciate
good quality and style in clothes, good tailoring and fit,
are willing to pay as much as $25.
Hart Schaffner & Marx
suits at $25 will surprise you. You'll get all-wool fabrics; trimmings, linings and other materials
of a high grade; tailoring of a very high order -the things that make a suit wear well, and
shapley. You'll get the value of best style standards and orginality of design; you'll get clothes
that fit you well,
And you'll gain from $10 "to $20, either in greater value'at ihe price; or lower price
for similar value.
Better see how true this is;
when you see the clothes.
$25 is a price you can afford, and you'll say so
Better come and look at the new spring styles
