Left. Of ladies in floppy pants Ogden Nash, commented, ''You look divine as you advance, have you seen yourself retreating?'' Comments on ladies in Pantino's?! i The campaign is a deft, delightful blend of sex and high fashion. AD Joseph Nissen of -Altman-Stoller, Inc., says, "it was a natural, it was a delight; management was enthusiastic." Purpose of the four-color ads running in Vogue and The New

York Times was ''to create a memo'rable image for the manufacturer of women's pants-to emphasize exceptional fit and styling." Wingate Paine was the photographer. Below. Joseph Magnin approaches the ladies differently in a seven-column-full ad that groups color, pattern, figures for startling impact.

Standard tice for men's stores selling expensive suits is a profit margin of 50% or more. But we work on a 25% margin . You con easily tell how much we paid the manufacturer for any suit in our stock by dividing our price by four . The balance is what we actually paid out. Toke our suits of mohair . These ore $120 or more in any store in America . We get $79.99. Divide our price by four and you get $20.00, our total profit. The rest, '59.99, is exactly how much we paid the manufacturer. Other stores pay from $60 to $6'2 each, but by ordering i.n substantial quantities we con 9et them for $59.99 each . If you multiply $59.99 by two, you get $120, the price these suits sell for in any store that carries them. Yes we break every rule in the book!

dorman's does the dirty work

MEN'S TERRIBLY EXPENSIVE CLOTHING, CUT TILL IT HURTS Who's rocking the boat! U1, we hope. Anybody can buy cheap auita from diocounters. Anybody can buy medium-price suita from diacounten. But what about expeMive auita, are they aacred or aomethingT We don't know ot one other store in the U.S.A. that is selling $100 to $175 suita tor less than the full rerular price. Somebody bas to bust tho j.>~y~~~~ ~~a~~rk~at it ia. All right, Dorman'â&#x20AC;˘ This invoivea fOil, you know. Probably the ftrat

you might like to study. Particularly it you are now paying over $100 oac:h tor your auita. We aay every statement ia true. Every comparative price is accurate and provable. Ot course, our claims deserve a little inv11tigation aroun4 town on your part, too.

As tor the moral isaue, you be the judge ot that. Is it fair tor one store to break the prices on luxury clothing and ret the whole market up in armaT Or put it a different way. Is it fair tor any store to take expensive merchandise and otter it to the public at tho very loweat prices the store can set them at and atiil atay in buaineasT Another thing is the humor in our ada. Because we don't take ourselves seriously, aome readers don't take ua seriously either. That is a calculated risk on our part. Humor is interesting. People will read it even it it Ia quite lengthy. And maybe you never thought ot this, but humor makes you concentrate to get the point. It's about that simple. It we can just make people read Gllr ads and think about what they're reading, we simply have to do a tremendous business. Read on, please. We'll leave it entirely up to you.



On this page is the medal-winning ad Gene Holt~n and Phil Lansdale created for Dorman's. It ran in the Los Angeles Times on March 18th of last year. C]f On the left is an ad that ran on May 6th of this year in a Philadelphia weekly, the Jewish Exponent. C]f CA agrees with the sub-head, ''Luria's does the dirty work." C]f Something stronger than words are needed to end this practice. CA will explore the possibilities .
