Most Buyers of $300 Suits Are Nuts, Super-Expensive Tailor Concludes By Frank ritmai DENVER, Aug. Id— tp>— Ninety percent of the customers who buy *300 suits are nuts, tailor Sam Wrintraub says. Sam proclaims hi' makes "the most fashionable clolhei in the world." Men who telephone their | orders from New York. Chicago, San Francisco and other cities give support to hU claim. Sam's cheapest suit jells for IZIO and some customers pay AS much a.i $700 for a vicuna (fine wool) overcoat. The reason for his success, Sam told an interviewer. \s this: "You run Into big money and the first thing you want to do is be original. You don't want to be like everybody else anymore. So you don't just wear a store suit. You wear Weintraub. They're nuts!" In detail Sam explained: "I got a customer, a lawyer, must make a fair salary. He gets divorced and now he conies to me for three suits. He's got a stomach, no chest and he's chsslnj after a. girl In Chicago. All he wants to do Is cover this thlnj here (Sam points at his stomach). He's mi la." Sam says he wants his patros "lo look a certain way. Most men are big stomached, flat chested, disfigured. But we want our customers to look Just so. We don't guarantee nothing—but style we give him." If you're flat chested, big stomached or disfigured (and got 300 ; bucks) don't rush lo the 'phone and J expect Sam to take your order for I a hand stitched stilt. 1 You need enough dough for three of them. Thats the minimum order. "I lose money on just one nuit— no matter how much 1 charge," Sam said. "I love this business." Sum added appreciatively. "I'm crazy about 11."
