This simple scenario is based on a story by Henry Irving Dodge which appeared in the Saturday Evening Post. Skinner (Bryant Washburn) is one of those office drudges who works hard but never gets any recognition and who timidly shrinks from his employer -- he's the kind of guy who grows old and gray without ever receiving a promotion. Finally, his wife (Hazel Daly) encourages him to buy a dress suit and, presenting himself at his best, changes his personality. He is finally able to exude the confidence and assurance he never had before, and this helps win him success and a partnership in the firm.
