If the customer is clear up front that he is planning to order one shirt, or whatever the minimum number of shirts is, and he is not intentionally misleading the maker, I don't think this is all that bad. Perhaps he can only afford 1, or 3, or 6 bespoke shirts, but needs more than that. I don't think it's his responsibility to worry about the maker's profitability. He's not "f*** [ing] the maker out of his recompense." He's meeting the terms of the deal. And if the maker is losing money on an order, perhaps he should be charging more.
Wait, did I just say that?
