South Carolina Democrat Ernest F. Hollings, the Senate's biggest booster of protecting the jobs of U.S. textile and apparel workers from import competition, has had suits custom-made in South Korea.

At the request of U.S. Embassy officials, Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., two weeks ago brought back a custom-made suit from South Korea that Hollings had a Seoul tailor sew from U.S.-made fabric.Lugar was one of 32 senators who in July voted against a Senate-passed bill by Hollings that would restrict imports of clothing and fabrics in order to ``keep up the standard of living' of U.S. textile and apparel workers.
