You’ll wonder how Topkis can be sold for a dollar

EVEN if you had never heard of Topkis you’d be likely to choose it among any group of athletic union suits.

You’d see, at the first glance, that Topkis has superior quality. And if you didn’t know that the price of Topkis is One Dollar, you’d willingly pay twice that much—because even then you’d recognize Topkis as unusual value.

You can rely on Topkis to fit. Ample arm-holes. Lots of stride-room in the extra long, extra wide legs. And laundering won’t harm—Topkis is pre-shrunk.

And wear—man, Topkis certainly does wear! It ought to—the nainsook and other high-grade fabrics are better than you get in lots of union suits that cost double.

Good dealers charge One Dollar for the Topkis Men’s Athletic Union Suit. All admit it’s worth more.

Men’s Shirts and Drawers, 75c per garment. 75c for Boys’ Union Suits, Girls’ Bloomer Union Suits, and Children’s Waist Union Suits.

In Canada, Men’s Union Suits, $1.50.
TOPKIS BROTHERS COMPANY, Wilmington, Delaware

    The illustration is completely insane.

    I don’t know a lot of men who would receive a calling card from a butler while in underwear that at first glance looks suspiciously like a white summer frock.

    My butler always shows up when I’m in my union suit, it’s how he gets his kicks.

    But Mr. Topkis, what if I’m NOT a member of the Athletic Union? Do you have any superior quality Topkis Scab suits?
