A Word About "Gymbloom" Si



"GYMBLOOM" SUITS are made on honor. The
best materials, the most careful tailoring to individual
measurements make "Gymbloom" garments the best
gymnasium and kindred suits on the market. Before
the school year ends is the best time to send in your
fall order. We can then make most satisfactory
deliveries and there will be no confusion in organizing
the gymnasium classes or embarrassing waits for suits
to come. We will be pleased to submit sample suits
and make up the matter of any special, designs that
you wish made.

All suits are positively made to individual measure-
ments. Measurement blanks furnished upon request.
Several schools are having a distinctive material or
something distinctive in the way of trimming. We
are always pleased to cooperate with you in any-
thing of this kind.

position to secure the needed practical training
in the most thorough-going way and in the
