I wonder why someone wants to become a tailor. The trade is difficult to learn cause of the real cutting knowledge. You need to have money already in order to reach a certain level of customers. Otherwise you get plenty of fortune customer with style forum knowledge, they have learned everything and teach you how to make a suit so they can be sure to get out a 5000$ one where 'they' can brag around with their friends. Those people maybe make decent money, let’s say 20$/h but they expect their 5000$ suit not to be more expensive than 500$, means you the tailor you better work your ass off for 5$/h. This is the majority of all customers. Or, you the tailor you are a real cutter on the table and get to know the right people. A new arrived tailor should have a first profession in order to avoid slavery. So if you make in your first job 18$/h you don't need to prostitute yourself to make some customer, who make 20$/h, a suit for 5$/h. You gone tell the customer, look I make already 18$/h I don't need you to make you a 5000$ suit for cheap. The 'style overbearing customer' will be pissed that his scam didn't work this time and will f.o.
There was that cloth rep from Todd Hudson, Ed Castlenach and had an appointment with me. I give nothing on such mouth movers, he did not even show up here cause there was no money to be made with me. He was probably drinking coffee somewhere with some other tailor and gave a shit on me. So better remember the name of this fortune teller and avoid his business. Those are sales men they need to move their mouths in order to appear busy. I was an IBM Sales Account Manager I know what I am talking about.
