During my recent visit to Warren PA 16365, I made an obligatory visit to Allegheny Book Mart, which offers collectibles, antiques, books and unique items for sale in a space formerly occupied by the Printz Company.
Among the unique items I found this time are a number of issues of The Blue and White, a monthly magazine, "published by the students of the Warren High School", that features short essays, poetry, humor, student and faculty news, sports reports, and lots and lots of advertisements promoting local businesses and services.
By the time I started Warren Area High School in 1965, The Blue and White had long ceased publication.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor's CPI Inflation Indicator, those 1930 way ahead! suits and topcoats for spring would have ranged in price from $47 to $100 in the mid-1960s, perhaps a bit on the high side for a preacher's kid, even for one who worked part time through most of high school. I was more likely to shop at Penney's, Levinson's Brothers, or Epstein's.
Among the advertised items I wouldn't have found at the Printz's in the 1960s: knicker suits, sweater sets, golf hose, "Charter House" hats, suspenders, and knickers.
As for hosiery, we simply referred to this item of clothing as "socks".
