There's a whole series of those Tuxedo ads from the mid 20s. This one is 1926.

The "Jimmy Pipe" Prince Albert ads were popular for a number of years. I think the earliest I have is 1911 and this one is 1921. I am amazed at how slang heavy the copy is!

Maybe they were trying to break into a younger, more hip market. I like the daylight savings time reference.
