John Paul Bart ( Charles Ray ), a presser who has high respect for the favourable impression created by expensive clothes, "borrows" a suit to wear to an exclusive reception. There he attracts the attention of shipping magnate Abraham Nathan ( Stanton Heck ), who hires John Paul to handle his company's labour problems. Against great odds and despite Gustavus Sonntag's ( Douglas Gerrard ) conniving schemes, John Paul is successful, but he returns to Anton Huber's ( Tom Ricketts ) shop when he is exposed by Sonntag. Nathan, however, finds him and gives him a permanent position, and John Paul then marries Tanya Huber ( Ethel Grandin ).
This 1922 silent comedy was based on the play " A Tailor Made Man ", a comedy in four acts by Harry James Smith. It was produced by Charles Ray Productions and distributed by United Artists. Sadly, the status of this silent film remains unknown.
