Hey Fellows!

Regard this September 20, 1932 Ypsilanti Daily Press ad from the onetime clothes store Uhlman's, at 13 North Washington (now the home of Pub 13).

Here are some "college cords" for you college kids. Note the attractive high waist and the balloony legs. Available in blue, tan, and brown. You must have a pair!

Costs range from $1.98 to $2.39 [about $31 today; hmm, a lot of money for Depression-era times].

What really struck Dusty D, however, is that these cords are available in sizes 26 to 34.


35-inch waist? You're out of luck.
