£2 5,', £2 10/. £2 15. nnd £3 3/. MADE TO MEASU-RE. The Suits now procurable from GEORGE DAVIES. 40. Queen-street, opposite Smeeton's, at the above prices, are really superb In style, fit, and finish. They equal In uppparanee the Suits Auckland men have been in the habit of paying the tailors who give credit five or sis guineas for, and they possess one ixiiut which no other firm call supply--the famous Keep-Shape Front. The "Keep-Shape" Front is a registered front that ensures the coat from turning back idea from the best Ix>udon and New York tailo-rlug establishments, and Mr. Davies is very fortunate indeed lv possessing the exclusive right to use this front in coats made in New Zealand. Gentlemen who have already -had suits made at the C'hristchurch establishment since the "Keep-Shape" front was Introduced have been highly pleased with the splendid coats produced. Then, special care is given to every detail in the making of every garment, and Mr. TJavies is so satisfied that your suit will give complete satisfaction when you order it from him that he has authorised us to state that he will give a written guar-autee to refund your money should you not be ■e-ntlrely satisfied with the garments when you receive them. We attribute the difference of £2 in the price of. Mt. Davles' suits .as compared with the ordinary made-to--1 m&asuire suit largely to the modern methods , adopted in the making of the garments, and, \ of cou-rse, also to the fact that he sells - entirely for cash, giving no credit what- ; ' ever, thus making no bad debts; and, after , ' ail, it does seem absurd that one man should 11 ihave to pay a higher price for his suit just ' I because some other fellow fails to pay for . 'his; but that is just what happens, for somebody has to pay for those who do not ■ pay, and it Is naturally not the tailor who . j gives credit; it is the man who dL>cs pay— I you. Mr. Davles has Just opened in the i' Auckland branch a very large shlpmeut of ( jthe newest autumn and winter suitings, I direct from the manufacturers. They in- > elude all the latest shades and colourings , : In -t'lie XfLshionable brown and green • [ worsteds so much worn now, and many i "beautiful light materials, and the standard I qualities in blues and blacks, which are i guaranteed to retain thek colour, beJng ot ' tion of these splendid suitings is invited and ■ advised.
