These redactions apply particularly to the "better" garments—those exclusive, distinctive, one-of-a-kind garments found here. It has been three or four years since we have staged a 2-for-l sale and due to changing conditions there will be no such sale this Winter. The wide price ranges and difficulties in grouping garments make this famous old sale impossible. But you will find much of interest In these present HEDUCTIONS. While not ALL garments have been "cut"—the savings are substantial on those very garments in which you are probably interested. Exclusive furred DRESS COATS REDUCED Those fine fur-trimmed dress coats which sold at $68.00 are radically reduced—as are also the fur, trimmed "sport coats with beautiful racoon collars. You may buy ttifcse at January sale prices right now. Distinctive Afternoon and Evening Dresses R educed Here are the frocks for which this store is famous — those "better" dresses in blacks and dark shades which literally "radiate" style and individuality. You'l 1 find them now at sharply "cut" prices. Winter X and 3 Piece SUITS-HALF PRICE We have made short work of the six or eight remaining winter suits—beautiful fur-trimmed garments with that metropolitan "look" which formerly sold for from 129.75 to $40.00. Sizes 14 to 18 and one-of- a-kind suits—every one of them.
