It's true... Prime Ministers shop at Matheson Men's Wear!

In 1903, when John Diefenbaker was about 8 years old, the Diefenbaker family moved to northern Saskatchewan near Fort Carlton, then in the Northwest Territories.

From there, history was made, of course.

After John obtained 3 degrees fromt he University of Saskatchewan, he eventually entered politics and became Prime Minister from 1957 to 1963.

We assume John liked to dress well, and being a good Saskatchewan man, Ted Matheson Men's Wear was the place to shop. My grandfather kept this chit from a purchase made by Deifenbaker in 1941.

For our family, it's an interesting historical tidbit.

And, by the dapper look of Mr. Diefenbaker in the photo below, it may very well be Matheson Men's Wear suit he has on!
