An amusing 1930s advertising brochure for Moss Bros outfitters, with illustrations by Anna Zinkeisen. The brochure takes the format of a short play written by "Hugo Backgammon", in which the protagonist, finding himself dispossessed of all his clothes, is suited and booted by the helpful fitters at Moss Bros. The comic plot has a Wodehousian quality, heightened by Zinkeisen's humourous illustrations.
