ND so you're getting your suit at Mack's.

You're a wise soul,

YOU'LL look like a young
garmne if you wear this
charming little suit frock
that has a lilting air of light-
hearted spring to it.
It's a one-piece dress with a
swagger .hiplength box jack-
et, of novelty self checked

feta in a gay ruffly collar.

and a thrifty one, because you know that suits right now are a long
suit with us, and that $19.75 goes a long way. We have suits, at that
price (and under and over) you can live in this spring (and next
and next). We have everything from bumpy tweeds to flannels,
from ruffles to brusque Britishers born in a London fog, from hardy
pin stripes to a froth of frills or a soft bosom of quilted taffeta, from
full length topcoats to finger tip capes, from sober black to
loud plaids. Sizes .14 to 40.
And if you don't want a suit (a wild conjecture) we have all man-
ner of solo topcoats in flecked, plaid and monotone wools which
are, individually, a travel coat, town coat, campus coat, motor and
cruise coat - all in one. From $12.75 to $29.75. Sizes 14 to 40.
