Good Appearance alone may
not win you the respect of big
men, but it surely will make you
"at home" among them. No actor, how however
ever however great, can play Macbeth at his bet
in his street clothes. Few men can act,
whole-heartedly, act and feel the role of
success before Grangers if dressed in the
costume of failure.
GOOD CLOTHES kindle self confi confi-dence;
dence; confi-dence; nothing helps more surely to
give that "just right" feeling than a "jut
right" Suit of Clothes. A well-groomed
front is worth more than all the liquid
bracers in the world to make a man feel
worthy of the bet on equal terms with
the biggest. The very basic idea of our
tailoring is the idea of just light clothes.
