£2 5/, £2 10/, £2 15/, and £3 3/. MADE TO MEASURE. The Suits now procurable from GEORGE DAVIES, 46, Queen-street, opposite Smeeton's, at the above prices, are really superb In style, fit, and finish. They equal lin appearance the Suits Auckland men have I been in the habit of paying the tailors who ! give credit five or six guineas for, an<l they ' possess, one point which no other firm can supply—the famous Keep-Shape Front. The "Keep-Shape" Front is a registered front that ensures the coat from turning back and getting out of shape. It is the latest idea from the best London and New York tailoring establishments, and Mr. Davies is very fortunate indeed in possessing the exclusive right io use this front in coats made in New Zealand. Gentlemen who have 'already 'had suits made at the Curistchurca j establishment since the "Keep-Shape" ! front was introduced have been highly I pleased with the splendid coats produced. , Then, special care is given to every detail jin the making of every garment, and Mr. i Davies is so satisfied that your suit will i give complete satisfaction when you order it from him that he has authorised us to state that he will give a written guarantee to refund your money should you not be entirely satisfied with the garments when you receive them. We attribute the dlfferi ence of £2 in the price of Mr. Davies' suits as compared, with the ordinary made-to-measuTe suit largely to the modern methods adopted in tie making of the garments, and, of course, also to the fact that he sells entirely for cash, giving no credit whatever, thus making no bad debts; aud, after all, it does seem absurd that one man should ■have to pay a higher price for his suit just 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 gives credit; it 4s the man who does pay— you. Mr. Davies has just opened in the Auckland branch a very large shipment of the newest autumn and winter suitings, direct from the manufacturers. They include ail the latest shades and colourings ill the fashionable brown and green worsteds so niuoh worn now, and many beautiful light materials, and the standard qualities in blues and blacks, which are guaranteed to retain their colour, being of the best possible dye. lour early inspection of these splendid suitings is invited and advised. The address is:G.EORGE DAVIES, 46, Queen-street, Auckland, and at Christchurch, Wellington, and Dunedin. M 135
