I've been amazed, yet again, by the terrible attitude exhibited by people working at small boutiques. I walked in to one recently, just shopping the summer sales, and the first thing out of the guys mouth after saying hi, was "so how much do you have to spend?", to which i didn't really give an answer. He then gave me PERMISSION to look around the store, as if having a customer in the store was a burden. So i walked upstairs and looked at some artioli shoes, at which point the one that was following me around like a lost puppy said "a thousand five," in a "why are you even here" tone of voice. It must have been my poor attire. I guess armani, ferragmos and zegna just don't cut it anymore ;p Heh... I really don't know where they find these people. I highly doubt that people with gobs of money to spend are always wearing good clothes, so to dismiss people that quickly is just bad business. What really made me laugh was that when i asked if they had a bespoke service, the answer i got was "what's that?" So they have an elitist attitude, yet they don't even have the inventory or level of service to support it.. i don't know why i even bother trying new stores.
