We're mainly
interested in • ur body.

Before you get excited, understand
that our interest in your body is purely
clinical. Because it's our job to help you
select clothes that will flatter your particular
body shape. So, we've developed a body
classification system.
Our body classification method helps
our salesmen size you correctly. They use
it to match your body shape with the cor-
responding suit shape. At the same time
they compensate for fluctuating sizing pol-
icies of manufacturers like Eagle, Botany
and Kuppenheimer.
Or, if you prefer the fitted look, our
body classification system tells our sales-
men where to start. Namely the area about

five inches up from your waist. That's
where a fitted coat will be the snuggest
We can practically rebuild a suit to get the
coat to flair exactly right.
It also helps salesmen to know what
fabric weave, texture and pattern will look
best on you. If you wear a portly, for example,
a vertical pin stripe will do a lot more for
you than say, a glenn plaid.
That same principal carries over when
our salesmen help you accessorize a suit
or sport - coat. They can show you what
striped shirt to wear with what striped suit.
They'll even throw in a patterned tie. And
make it all look good.
But our body classification method
doesn't end there. Because after our sales-
men come our tailors. And they're just as

They use the system to know when to
slidea button over a little. Or what reshaping
is needed in the back, the shoulders, the
waist, or the seat. They evaluate the wrinkle
resiliency of the fabric you've. selected and
make the slacks so you can sit down and
get back up without getting cross-creases.
Why not come into Osmun's sometime
soon and experiment. You can try our body
classification system first hand. Besides,
it'll giveyou a chance to see how we operate.
