  1. The Best’s ad is classy: you could actually still wear a suit of that cut today, no prob, narrow-leg pants and pointy slip-on shoes and all. And the girl’s outfit is good as well. Blimey, it’s almost 50 years ago.

    Got a couple of work shirts in a sale in Best’s in the Stephen’s Green centre a while ago; nice stuff. Good to see them still in business.
