    Stanislas Dubois is a businessman who dresses according to contemporary standards. When he meets a woman on a date in a restaurant, he's clad in a coat. Upon leaving he confuses a similar coat with his own one. Following this mix-up he becomes increasingly aware that he's got meanwhile something about him which attracts peculiar people.
