Georges de Paris was born in Marseille and came to Washington, D.C with a young woman and after their separation found himself homeless, reportedly bathing in the Potomac. He managed to save money to buy a sewing machine and his reputation grew until President Johnson ordered his suits. He also enjoyed taking breaks throughout the day for wine and cheese and especially after work at the Washington, D.C. restaurant Old Ebbitt Grill. He died at the age of 81 in Arlington, Virginia on 13 September 2015 after a long illness.
