Yeah, so? If your contention is simply that recurring clients are better than 'samplers', then thanks for stating the obvious.The point I was making was that every traveling tailor deals with this very issue, but they continue to travel (often increasing the frequency of their trips), thereby implying that they're still doing a good business despite the high churn.So, yes - dieworkwear may order only 3-4 coats over 2-3 years, but that doesn't mean its not worthwhile for...
Solito was hardly a 'deal' of any sort - he predated NSM, and Rubi came to town infrewuently. For Neapolitan tailoring, Solito was essentially the only game in town (save the guy who came with Scafora, who was more MTM).

I pointed out the uncorrected drop right on a prominent Rubi customer, and wondered why his garments were held in such esteem on SF. Unlike people like you, I have the capacity to make critical notes of tailors that I myself use.Improve your reading comprehension.
I see you’ve been hitting the bottle earlier than usual. Unlike you, I don’t glean my info simply from forum posts.I’ve met Bernhard Niedersuesz 4 times now (before, and after, he moved on to CM Frank), and have been to the Knize store in Vienna twice. Half their models on display are MTM Brioni, so perhaps you simply forgot to ask / look at the label.Knize prides themselves as having one of the softest cuts in Europe – Bernard actually once mentioned that the shop lost...
