Jimmy Olsen's Interior Decorator Disguise

Jimmy Olsen's Greatest Costumes and Disguises #15

In "The Burglar Kit from the Future," a story from Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #66, Jimmy tries to help the F.B.I. bust Count Slade, an international thief and spy.  To do so he poses as an interior decorator who the Count hires to redecorate his hotel room.  Because apparently that's a thing people do in Jimmy Olsen comics.
Jimmy's interior decorator disguise consists of a brown wig, a goatee, a dark suit with a white carnation, and a Colonel Sanders string tie.  He tops this ensemble off with an Inspector Clouseau style French accent.   So basically, it's the perfect disguise, except for one small detail...

"The La Paree company only uses Lady Decorators!"  You know, I've never heard of someone hiring an interior decorator company to redo their hotel room anyway, and a company that only employs women?  I have a feeling that the "La Paree" might just be a front for an escort service!  Better luck next time, Jimmy.
