Quality of Fabrica As for quality of fabric, the common ground of objection to clothes not made in the old wait-to-order way, we established tlie highest quality 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 o�rried all the clothing mak- � ers of the country into the making of inferior quality at iiiferior prirpH, ve IfKik our Stand for sterling quality, and have reuiaineil.firm in adhering to all woolfabrics -made iu Worsteds, Serges and Tweetls. We have succeeded even in raising the standanl of made-in-Cauada Woollens through our famous Blunoz Sei]ge Suits af 20.00. We have bought and imported direct from the British mills fine Worsted which only the high-priced tnilors have the courage to buy through the cost-laden channel of the middleman. As for style, many custom tailors get their best ideas from our semi-annual style books. i Semi-Ready Styles are Created We create styles--not copy them, anil our 15.00 suit has the same style as our 25.00. As for fit: there is not one man in 4'?5 who cannot be ijerfectly fitted from any repreasntative stock of Semir risady Clothes-and that without delay-tall, short, thick, thin, high-shouldered, stoop-shouldered, sloping-shouldered, erect or over-erect. Men of all typea-r-onr physique type system, makes special clothes clothes to fit them. The 4a6th 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; all scams sewn with pure silk threads-no "merceri/cd" cotton that looks like silk; all silk linings made of real silk. The clamour tor low prices aud the very high price of wool debased quality in many quarters, but we met it fairly, honestly and straight-and we have strengthened our position even while doing the pioneer work for a tailoring system which must ultimately prevail. Semi-ready Tailoring, in fit. in style, in quality and in tulturcd tone expression are good enough for every man; and not too high-priced for sny man, ' - . You will find it out some day; even though today you niny becoiilf iitcd to abide by that whicji; was and is not now.
