P. Edward Fine, who practiced law before entering the men's clothing business, died Friday of cancer at his home in the Club House Condominium in Northwest Baltimore.
Mr. Fine, who was 89, and his wife operated Edwards Men's and FTC Boys Shop in Overlea from 1940 until 1968. After retiring from his store, he worked part time as a salesman at the Young's Men's Shop in Hamilton until 1980.
From 1924 until 1940, he practiced law with a brother-in-law, the late H. Mortimer Kremer.
Mr. Fine was born in Baltimore and graduated from City College and the University of Maryland law school.
Before going to law school, he sold advertising for a predecessor of the News American.
He was an Orioles fan who never missed a game at the stadium or on radio or television. He also never missed a family celebration.
His wife of 39 years, the former Gussie Polikoff, died in 1979.
Mr. Fine is survived by a son, Dr. Stuart L. Fine of Mount Washington, and two grandchildren.
Private services were planned.
