N RECENT YEARS dry cleaning has progressed from ordinary dry cleaning
to scientific cleansing. Each year adds come improvement to this depart'
ment. We have adopted Microrlear as the most perfect method up to date.
Suit materials such as tweeds and coarse home spuns, which are popular
this year, gather considerable soil in the weaves and require not only the
removal of surface soil which may be seen by the eye, but also the removal
of embedded grit and soil which can only be seen under the microscope and
the restoring of animal oil present in all wool materials to impart sheen and
touch to the fabric.
MICROCLEAN performs all these services without fail and constant tests
are made each day to insure uniformity.
Suits sent in for cleaning go through these different operations. First-
they are marked in and searched for anything left in the pockets. Such
articles are tagged and put in envclones to insure return to customers. The
pockets and trouser cuffs are blown out with compressed air to remove
accumulated dirt and lint. They are then sorted according to color and fabric
Next - they go to the Spotting Department where stains requiring the
work of a chemist are removed. The cuffs are then tacked up and garments
inspected for missing buttons and minor repairs. From there the garments
go to the battery of latest type pressing machines where the garments are
gently reshaped on the different steam presses to their original shape and
Experienced men are required in this department who can rehape and
distinguish between the different materials. A blue serge is pressed differently
from a coarse tweed. A tuxedo is reshaped differently again from a Palm
teach. Aftei pressing the linings of the tuxedos and full dress suits are hand-
ironed to insure a back to new appearance.
All garments are then inspected thcroughly as to cleaning, pressing, repair-
ing, buttons, etc.
Any special requirements of the customer, such as round sleeves, roll lapels
or round cuffs on trousers are given special attention without extra cost.
The finished garment is now placed on a hanger which will not leave a
crease in the trousers from hanging or will the shoulders sag. These hangers,
while expensive, insure a perfectly cleaned and pressed suit to be delivered
to the customer.
When you arrive in Ann Arbor, stop in and we will explain the different
processes to you and also furnish a guide for your inspection of our plant
which should prove quite interesting.

ing buttons and form pressing. This
helps to insure you of a perfect job.
However, if at any time you have
any complaint we are always very
glad to adjust it.
A Press-Only,
N Service.
Between cleanings, garments often
become wrinkled and need repress-
ing. Men's suits are form shaped,
the same as when cleaned and given
the same thorough inspection for
half the cleaning and pressing
charge. Also, dresses sometimes need
refinishing when not soiled enough
to need cleaning. These departments
are able to handle orders of this
type at very short notice purely for
your convenience. Remember, be--
tween cleanings have your suit or
dress just pressed.

April 1st, 1936 - on and after
this date spring garments are in
vogue, so let us suggest you send
in your furs for Cold Storage and
cleaning -cleaning by the furriers
method; that is, the scientific saw-
dust cleaning method recommend-
cd by all furriers. GREENE'S is,
the Only compsn...y in the City
1 hladi:ng Cold 'Stbrage.
For your winter garments, cloth
coats, overcoats, wool dresses, wool
suits, tuxedoes, in fact, anything
along the woolen line, send them
in as they are discarded for Spring.
We will clean, cold store, insure
and protect them from moths
ready for your return again in the
fall. It eliminates all the carrying
home and back again and costs you
no more than to have it done at
home. You do not pay anything
for this service until fall when you
get your garments back. All work
is insured by the largest Insurance
Company in the world. We feel
this is a truly wonderful service-
typical of our superior quality.

urney to Ann Arbor by air this is the first view you will get of "Michigan."
Acoiipctcnt staff ot tailors and
Aodressmakers are employed at all
times for your convenience. How-
ever, we do not make new gar-

YOST FIELD HOUSE. This immense building houses a great many of major sports events ... basketball, track meets,
football practice when weather is inclement. You'll see a great deal of this building.

White gloves, black gloves, long
gloves, short gloves, men's gloves
or ladies gloves -- all clean beauti-
fully. Our glove department is
modeernly equipped to handle all
kinds of gloves. Any gloves which
are cleaned, having ripped seams,
are resewed without charge on our
regular factory glove - stitching
machines -- the only glove-stitch-
ing machines in Ann Arbor.
We also have in connection with
our cleaning establishment a Credit
Department who will be pleased to
open a personal charge account to
any student who can furnish ade-
quate credit information.
Monthly statements will be sent
directly to the student or to the
parents for their approval, which-
ever they request.
We feel this service is one to be
considered, as our credit records are
kept accurately and broughtoregu-
larly to the student's attention and
he in turn can check, as well as the
parents, on his "cleaning budget" at
any time.


We insure your garments with the
largest insurance company in the
Factory glove stitching on all
gloves cleaned at GREENE'S.
Knit dresses blocked to individual

ments, either suits or dresses.
We are, howcver, in a position to
alter, repair, reweave, reline, patch
and make over any suit, overcoat,
topcoat, leather jacket, new cuffs,
zippers, etc., in fact, if it can be
repaired, we can do it. Cuffs of
trousers which are worn may be
turned so as to still retain the cuff
and the exact same length. Trou-
sers are being worn for fall to the
heel in Ann Arbor.
Sleeves can also be lengthened
or shortened to suit at nominal
Reline jobs with a guarantee. A
large supply and variety of differ-
ent quality and colors of lining are
carried at all times.
If the seat of your trousers get
thin, as is natural in going to
school, do not wait until they are
worn through,'send them in early
and have them reinforced. You
will be unable to see the patch as it
is on the inside well secured and
doubles the life of the trousers.
