The boss got kind of personal about that top coat, He said if I was going to continue writing ads for him, I would have to practice what I preached. So I had it cleaned, pressed and repaired and now I won't have to buy a new one. One customer remarked yesterday that he had thrown one suit away three times. Later he would find it, send it to the Ideal Cleaners, and after it waa cleaned and pressed," people would ask him where he got the new suit. It pays jto take care of the clothes. Send 'em in.
