say about a man's appearance is . .. he
wears his clothes well."
She means that he takes them in his
stride, never looks painfully "dressed-
up," and is always comfortably at ease
whether behind a desk, on a dance floor,
or addressing a meeting of the board.
You can't help but wear your clothes
well if they have been made by Stein
Bloch. Designed to drape the natural
curves and masses of your body, they
are moulded so skilfully that there is
not a single trace of stress or stiffness
from collar to trouser-cuff.

First Lady... and you will know what a
step forward you have made in the art
of looking your best.
