The "NATIONAL" the House of Style. The Secret of Style for the Woman with Limited Dress Allowance. OUR wealthier friends are indeed fortunate. For they can easily gratify that age-old desire for new gowns and coats and lingerie; shoes and dress accessories. But for us who have to count our pennies, the problem of dress becomes a real source of worry and despair. What to buy? Is it stylish? Will it wear? Constantly, these three questions are before us. Is there any solution? Yes, Madam, there is an answer — "Shop at the 'NATIONAL'." For 35 years we have specialized in creating stylish clothes at money-saving prices. Today the "NATIONAL" is nationally recognized as the House of Style. If you studied, lived, breathed, style for 35 years right in New York, the style center of America, don't you think you, too, would know style. We do know style. Often you hear your friends and neighbors say, "Don't you like my 'NATIONAL' Dress?" Do you recall the touch of pride in their voice when they said "my 'NATIONAL' Dress?" Do you speak of your clothes with that touch of pride our customers do? You will if you buy at the "NATIONAL," for truly we are Specialists in Style. Because We are Specialists in Value, too, You Get the Most for Your Money. Everyone admits that the specialist can give you the best and finest articles. But what is not generally known is that the Specialist Gives the Greatest Values. Our very bigness spells pleasant economy for you. Where the smaller house buys in quantities of a dozen, we buy in hundreds. Mills, manufacturers, wholesalers all know we buy for cash and so quote us the very lowest prices. Every penny of these savings we pass on to you. Do you know any other house you buy from that examines every dress or coat or skirt or suit, to make sure that it meets the high standard of quality, workmanship and value demanded by the "NATIONAL." We are glad to do it, because by this very examination do we insure your getting quality clothes at money-saving prices—clothes satisfaction. We honestly believe no one has equal experience or an equal opportunity to give you as much for your dollar as can the "NATIONAL." We say we honestly believe this—and we do. But we want you to prove it for yourself. We want you to study "NATIONAL" values and see for yourself that this Book is for you, indeed, the "NATIONAL" Money-Saving Style Book. And by studying this Book, you will know the secret of style for the woman with limited dress allowance. It is to buy your clothes and your family's clothes at the "NATIONAL," the house of style and value. Putting Our Best Values First. THE New York styles pictured on the opposite page solve your problem of how to dress more stylishly and still save money. One glance tells you they are stylish.
