CATALOGUE - MEN'S SUITS. SEARS ROEBUCK & CO. - Made to Order Clothes for Men and Young Men. Spring and Summer 1937.

The company 1937. Quarto publisher's illustrated wrappers (corner gone from the top corner of the front); 16pp, illustrated throughout and with some 60 mounted fabric swatches. A pretty good copy complete with the order forms and the four page brochure on how to measure yourself. ¶ Clifton Webb, Robert Montgomery and Edward Arnold never looked so smart and you can be sure they didn't wear Sears Roebuck suits. I'm almost sure one of the models here is a young John Wayne. One of Wayne's biographers writes of the unhappy poor boy reading Sears Roebuck catalogues cover to cover and dreaming of being able to afford everything in them. A dream shared by countless Americans, young and old, for decades.
