The garment business is full of woes, what with strangling bank fees, designer problems, changeable Paris fashions, and the high cost of "oitermobiles" . . . but worst of all are partnerships.
"If Andrew Carnegie would come to me and tell me he wants to go with me as partners together in the cloak and suit business, I would say 'No, ' so sick and tired of partners I am!" cries Abe Potash -- until he meets Morris Perlmutter. In no time flat they seal the deal to face the troubles and joys of business together.
Montague Glass (1877-1934) created two of the most enduring and entertaining characters of novels and the stage with his engaging Potash and Perlmutter.
