CHANGE

Style changes are not erratic in gentlemen's
apparel . . . yet changes are constantly occurring.
The alert merchant tailor anticipates these
style trends and TODAY designs the clothes of
TOMORROW ... assuring a style life as enduring
as the fine fabrics and painstaking workmanship
of the clothes.
No haphazard freaks of fashion are counte-
nanced ... good taste must prevail and only those
styles adopted which are becoming to the person-
ality and physique of the wearer.
The modern treatment in the pattern markings
of our new Fall woolens will appeal to you.
