TO GENTLEMEN: Some good tailoring news For you and for us we desire to make a plain presentment of the facts about Semi-Ready Tailoring : the present day method of making good clothes for gentlemen. After you read this you can do, and probably will do just as you please about it. But you had better have the facts, for it is unwise to do just as you please without having the facts. "flit M Some Advantages of Semi-Ready You willTiml in every large city n few custom tailors who nmke clothes really worth paving for; they give you the best of quality, the best of tailoring, fit, style. These are the things you pay the extra money for. They charge from SSio to $50 for a suit of the same fabrics which are inaile up in the $15, 2(1 and 25 "semi-ready" suits. Auy man who does not need to worry about parting with $60 need not worry about what ho gets lor it. The rich man cun afford to be iiLdressed. Hut if you are going to spend less than $50. spend a good deal less uud wear Semi-Heady Clothes. We know what Boute of you will say : "[ tried ready-made once-no, thsnk you-they may do for some, but I can't be fitted, Tin peculiar." ''There's no style to them." In other words, you don't know the facts, and you're losiug money in youi bliss. A Perfect Fitting Garment If you have not tried Semi-Ready Tailoring you do not know of the real progress which has been made in making men's clothes through the Semi ready physique typo system and our division of expert labor iu our tailor shops. By our Physique Type system the physical man is divided into seven distinct types, each type is subdivided into 5 variations : we then make 15 of each variation : 425 suits. That is why and how we can absolutely guarantee a perfect fitting garment. LocbI laiprovcmcatt. II.

As for quality of fabric, the common ground of objection to clothes not made in the old wait-to-order wuy. we established the highest quulity standard. In the midst of a flood of adultered fabrics, in the striving for cheapness and bargains sales, of "mercerized" cottons and shoody tweeds, which had enn-ipd all the clothing milkers of the country into the making of inferior quality at inferior pnecs. �c tis>k our stand for sterling quality, ami have remained firm in adhering to all wool fabrics mode in Worsteds, Serges and Tweeds. We have succeeded even in raising the standard of mado-in-C'aiiadn Woollens through our famous Bluuoz Serge Suits at 20.00. We have bought and iuqiortod direct from the British mills tine Worsted which only the high-priced tailors hnvo the courage to buy through the eost-laden channel of the middleman. As for style, many custom tailors get their best ideas from our semi-annual style books. Semi-Ready Styles are Created We create styles-not copy them, aud our 15.00 suit has the same style as our 25.00. As for fit there is not one man in 4*25 who cannot be perfectly fitted from any representative stock of Semi-ready Clothes-and'that without delay-tall, short, thick, thin, high-shouldered, stoop-shouldertd, sloping-shouldered, erect or over-erect. Men of all types--our physique type system make--* special clothes clothes to lit them. Tho -J3(ith man may have to wait a couple of hours to have slight alterations made. ' ' ' ' . That is where we stand now: no thread of cotton in any of our fabrics; nil seams sewn with pure silk threads-no "mercerized" cotton that looks like silk; all silk linings made of real silk. The clamour tor low prices and the very high price of wool debased quality in many quarters, but we met it fairly, honestly aud straight--and we have strengthened our position even while doing the pioneer work for u tailoring system which must ultimately prevail. S�mi-ready Tailoring, iu lit. iu style, iu quality and iu i-ulturul tone expression are good enough for every man; aud not too high-priced for any man. You will find it out some day; even though today you may beconttuUd to abide by that which was and is not now. A'copy of our booklet, entitled "Dress and Address,'' is yours for a simple request. It pictures some of our spring and summer models. A. SOUTHARD LETHBRIDGE, ALTA. ;
