They wash a frikkin suit???? Clueless people.

Have you tried laughing a deep belly laugh, slapping the counter, crying, poking the other customers in the shop and finally paying them $100 for such a great joke?

I remember watching an old Italian tailor telling someone, once, "you don't deserve that suit. bring it back!"

Nice one JC! Instead of being embarrassed in public, embarrass preemptively, as it were. Awesome.
Sure, I believe your work rocks, but... have you considered, how are you going to sell that stuff?

Public humiliation (and, internet bullying) goes two ways. Be a gentleman. Let the opponent perry so you know precisely where to thrust.

That's exactly what I said, for the sake that they are spending usd1000 for a suit and threw it down to the washing machine...

margins.
We only have a few very demanding customers and it's very hard to serve them. Our terms say that we are allowed to try one correction, if that fails we take the garment(s) back and the customer pays nothing. What was planned as a marketing instrument about 30 years back is now backfiring at us with a large number of customers not willing to allow us that correction. So we are actually wasting money rather than making it.


sounds damn familiar to me ...:Cry:

Even if that customer orders another suit, we are practically loosing money because he will demand the same little details in the fit!


most of the "mass-sakkos" my boss is having made in arschaffenburg find their way onto my cutting table.
enter one bossman + one angry client (whom i´m meeting for the 1st time )
