V MADE TO MEASURE. The Suits now procurable from GEORGE DAVIES, 46, Queen-street, opposite Smeeton's, at the above ■ prices, .ate really superb In style, fit, and finish. Tbey equal in appearance the Suits Auckland men have been: in the habit of paying the tailors who give credit five or six/ guineas for, and 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 %-c latest idea jfrom the rbest London and York tailoring establishments, and Mr. Davies la very fortunate indeed in possessing the exclusive right to use this front in coats made in New Zealand. Gentlemen who have already-had suits made at the Christchurch 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. Davies 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 guarantee to refund your money should you not be entirely satisfied with the garments when you receive them. We attribute the difference of £2 ln the price of Mr. Davies' suits as compared with the ordinary made-to-measure suit largely to the modern methods adopted in the 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; and, after all, It does seem absurd that one man should ihave to pay a higher price for his suit juat because some other fellow fails to pay for •Ms; 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 Is the man who does pay— you. Mr. Davies has just opened in the Auckland branch a very targe shipment of trie newest autumn and winter suitings, direct from the manufacturers. They include all the latest shades and colourings in the fashionable brown and green worsteds so much worn now, and many beautiful light materials, and the standard [qualities in blues and blacks, which are [guarantee- to retain their colour, being of the best possible dye. Tour early inspecI tlon of these splendid suitings _ invited and |ndvdsed. The address Is: GEORGE DAVIES, 46, Queen-street, Auckland, and _t Christchurch, -Wellington, and Dunedln. M 135
