I needed to test out a new camera today so on the way to do some shopping I stopped in to see a tailor I have known for many years and photographed the machines he has in the back of his shop. He mainly does alterations these days but is a genuine pro, does lovely work and can size up a customer as they come in the door. As you can see these machines are in use and the place generally looked like most tailor's shops I have seen.

Worst than a Turkish alteration shop in Berlin, a shame for the trade!

It is a bit untidy, but when was the last time you went into a Turkish tailor shop?

I guess he is busy and earns his money, which is more than the world's best tailor can hope for...  :poke:

In Berlin you can see turkish alteration shops in many street in the west, not difficult to get in and look. They make very little money, I guess most of them are money laundries.

:Big Grin:

 

This is not an imaginary tailor's shop, its a real one run by a successful tailor who has done it all, retail, repairs and back when it was viable in OZ,  a manufacturer and he does stunningly good work. Owns his own shop, all of his own equipment and he is neither German or Turkish, his father was also a tailor and they are a Greek family. His mum was very good at the repairs and alterations until here eyesight went given she is over 80.
