John C.Zallee, ,
Merchant Tailor .
Our old friend. J. C.Zallee, . No. 110 Olive Street, has achieved a triubmph that,
if it does not render his name immortal, will mark him as a brave man and most con-
summate artist. Mr. Zallee, doubting the generally accepted theory that Paris is the
world in regard to fahion,s made a suit of gentlemen's clothing, and sent it to the
Exposition at paris, to compete for the prize, where there has been competition from
all parts of the world, from the finest artists and mechanica in the talloring line, where
all the crowned heads of the Continent have been to witness the competition in the
industrial productions of the civilized world. Late advices from the Grand Exposition
report Mr. Zallee successful, and St. Louis has the honor of having produced the
finest gentlemen's clothing in this great competition; and our city should take a pride
in the success of one of our own artizans, who so boldly and successfully accepted a
challenge thrown down by Paris, the heretofore acknowledged fountain-head of all
And in addition, we would say that, at this year's (the Seventh Annual) Fair,
Mr. Zallee has achieved a still greater triumph than he did at Paris. He has been
awareded by the judges the first premium for a whole suit—coat, vest and pants;
besides which, all our citizens who are competent judges award him their patron-
age; for a better fit, either abroad or at home, cannot be had than at his. Eatablish-
ment, No.110 Olive Street, hetween Main and Second.
Persons whishing fashionable clothing, should not fail to give Mr. Zallee a call,
for, in the matter of taste and skill, he has no superior.
