Tito Lombardi (Bert Lytell) is a fashion designer who has managed to make a success of himself even though he's all-too trusting and has no apparent head for business. Keeping Lombardi, Ltd. afloat is his assistant Norah (Alice Lake), and his bookkeeper, James Hodkins (Thomas Jefferson). But nothing can keep Lombardi's love life afloat -- Phyllis Manning (Juanita Hansen), the girl he considers his sweetheart, is really only interested in the beautiful gowns he gives her. Eventually she runs off with someone else. Meanwhile, the company is headed towards bankruptcy because Lombardi has extended credit to a theatrical producer (John Steppling), and his latest show is failing. But a friend of Lombardi's saves the business -- and wins one of the models (Jean Acker) for himself -- while Lombardi finally wakes up to the fact that he really loves Norah. This comedy was originally a stage play written by Frederick and Fanny Hatton.
