Chaplin in ads for Wolf & Bean suits

The following ads appeared in the Los Angeles Times in 1916. According to the first ad, Chaplin wore a Wolf & Bean dress suit “throughout the entire two reels” of One A.M., which premiered 100 years ago this week (August 7th). The second ad shows “the world’s greatest comedian” as readers have perhaps never seen him–in Full Dress. Says Mr. Chaplin: “I appreciate the fact that my Formal Attire is correct in every detail.”
