For all your jumpsuit needs

Jumpsuits are available at $10 each, but not for long, at the Toggery (8127 Mesa Drive; telephone 794-3818 or 451-3644), the last remaining branch of a haberdasher in business for 93 years but only until tomorrow at 5 pm. Today, the store’s open until 7 pm; tomorrow it opens at 10 am. Even the store fixtures are for sale. We saw a guy walk out with a couple dozen of Jockey boxers, all in size 30. If you’re fortunate enough to boast a waist that small, you’ll find plenty left in your size. Shoes and slippers are pretty well sold out. There are still some retro cabana sets, and quite a few cummerbunds, as well as quite a selection of clip-on neckties. Caps, woolen stingy-brims, and straw western hats are going for $5. Felt hats are selling for $10. Allens Boots has always blocked and steamed hats for free, and I think that Sheplers will, too. Sport jackets, often of that favored Austin shade of pale blue, were selling well. There was lots of conversation about the Austin of days gone by.
