Crouch, a partner in the fur salon business of Bodley and Crouch, struggles to keep the business successful despite Bodley's womanizing. Bodley tries to secure the affections of his latest would-be mistress by "selling" her husband an expensive mink coat at a reduced price, and the stammering Couch must consummate the sale with a straight face. There are suspicious wives, mistaken identities, and scantily clad girls stuffed into closets.
The action takes place in the fourth floor salon of Bodley, Bodley and Crouch, exclusive furriers.
