The "silk legs" of the title belong to star Madge Bellamy, and a fine pair of extremities they are indeed. The story focuses on the rivalry between two travelling lingerie salespersons, Ruth Stevens (Madge Bellamy) and Phil Barker (James Hall). Phil has the slicker sales approach, but Ruth has the advantage of being able to model her wares. The animosity between the two halts abruptly when Phil becomes worried that one of their customers, elderly Ezra Fulton (Joseph Cawthorn) harbors improper attentions towards Ruth. When it turns out that old Ezra's interest in the girl is strictly platonic, the relieved Phil relaxes long enough to declare his love for the heroine.
