Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 26, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta / l>Ak.Y HERALD Telling All About the New Things for Easter Five .or six years ago we decided to gio into the Ready to Wear Business, and at that time we followed 'the usual custom of buying Suits, Coats and Dresses from the travellers, months and months in advance of the time the people required them.-Now-a-days such a thing is irnpossifale to the Merchant who intends to do the Readyrto-Weal* business right.-^Styles are really never determined until the first of February- - and after.that all the really new things appear in the Market. To get this "very last vVdrd" in Styles we decided to send our buyers east each season-and we believe the tremendous growth of our ready-to-wear dopartment can be attributed to (the policy of going to'market. We publish one of his letters which will give some idea of what is veally nc\y in the East. PAGE NINE iiK Of aocks for the soMlcra.

D�ar Mr. Rylands- * I - When I viats East Just a year agoT wrote you a'letter giving you a brief outline of the new Stylfi features. Materials and colors that were shown in the Eastern style markets. On my ' arrival home, many of our customers, told me that had read that letter which was /jubllsh-ed, and thought it a splendid idea. - . , 80 I am going to repeat, touching as briefly as possible on lilies that I have actually purchased for our Easter Business. First of all the Suits--Which I must say are so entirely different from any previous Season.-VARIETY see.ins to be tho keynote to the styles. Many outstanding features'su'cn as Close fitting Jackets, flaring, below the wajst, some with Satin vestecs; Narrow Tailored Sleeves, and Straight, ''Koo'verlied" short skirts. The Eton Jacket and the "Lily Coat" with its many pointed panels are aisp coming In'Strong. , In ihe mattier,' of-detail the -Suit Coats show many'refreshing new "touches" such as tuxedo collars flylno-p^i'neJs, etcj The new colors both In separate Coats and suits are .Castor, Rookie Brown.'SeaOull.Greyandmilltary blue called "Monaco"-and "Shoe Top" Tano. The separate coats, .whi'cli'will be .very popular are developed from light Velours, Delk|i Cloth, and Tricotlnes, ".The. dresses which I have purchased so far will be the finest lot ever shown ^In Lethbrldge. "Hardiy two-alike--and every style absolutely new and different. Plain Taffeta Silk Is." shown, very' extensively In separate Skirts-with trimming of a contrasting stripe or platd silk. -The. Waists arc principally Georgettes, with Tuxedo collars of white satin, light greys-bisqlie and monaco blue-are the leading shades. I could go Into further details but space forbids. I'll leave the New York trip and its Impressions for a future letter. 1 Yours, very.; truly. ADAMS. Don't be in too Big a.
