FINE CLOThES FOR MEN
VAN BovIEN, I I., has long held a position of style leadership among
the retailers of fine clothes for men. But it is in precision tailoring
that their strongest claim to the seal of leadership rests.
The drape, fit, and air of a VAN BovEN suit is eloquent of a peerless
standard of workmanship. Expert craftsmen plus a policy of unstinting
care and attention to even the smallest detail of finishing combine to
produce clothes that are among the nest ready for wear.
It is a rare combination . . .this expert craftsmanship applied to fine
fabrics, superbly styled.
