Synopsis

An inquisitive employee is peeping through the keyhole of a door above which is a sing that reads "Styl". His behaviour attracts the interest of passing gentlemen who also want to look into the mysterious room. Suddenly the door opens and out comes an elegantly dressed man who invites the gentlemen inside. The men feast their eyes on fashion show models who are modelling underwear, pyjamas and dressing gowns made by Miltex.
