In April, the city's last surviving tailored-clothing manufacturer, Maryland Clothing Manufacturing Inc., won a $31 million contract to produce nearly half a million men's and women's Air Force Class A uniform coats. While decades of overseas competition have razed most American tailored-clothing factories, the East Baltimore company is in its 80th year of business.

After a morning spent proclaiming his innocence, Ermelindo M. Piccinini admitted in Baltimore County Circuit Court yesterday that he tried to have his wife killed, ending a case complicated by his apparent indecisiveness. Piccinini pleaded guilty to solicitation to commit murder yesterday afternoon, hours after an identical plea agreement fell through when he claimed that he was innocent and had been set up by police and prosecutors. "The thing was a setup from the get-go," Piccinini told Judge Lawrence R. Daniels during a hearing yesterday morning at which Piccinini was to be sentenced as part of a tentative plea agreement reached April 3. Daniels gave Piccinini "to the count of three" to admit his guilt or be tried on the charges.
