Synopsis

John Paul Bart, a presser who has high respect for the favorable impression created by expensive clothes, "borrows" a suit to wear to an exclusive reception. There he attracts the attention of shipping magnate Abraham Nathan, who hires John Paul to handle his company's labor problems. Against great odds and despite Gustavus Sonntag's scheming, John Paul is successful, but he returns to Anton Huber's shop when he is exposed by Sonntag. Nathan, however, finds him and gives him a permanent position, and John Paul then marries Tanya Huber.
