Anyway, this is not Aygesh:


This is Aygesh:

Agyesh in both pics. 1st and 3rd day (IIRC).

Someone buys a pair of my shoes, posts them on SF. Everyone goes, "where can I kop", and within no time, my order ledger is more than full. Now, I've got a choice: I either up prices to reduce the demand, or hire another person to increase my production. In the short run, however, that will cost me in productivity, as I need to train this person, etc. etc. Also, it increases my overhead as I need to start paying someone else a salary, so that will also result in a price increase. Similar things happened to the brands and producers that got picked up by SF and other websites, such as Drakes, Liverano, WW Chan, Crockett & Jones, etc. Sometimes, the next step is a corporate takeover, as the business is now so profitable that it becomes a clever investment. There are two ways to stay ahead of the curve: purchase from new artisans when they are discovered and stay with artisans that give you "old customer prices". Another thing you could think of is localizing your strategy. In the UK, for example, there's an increasing number of traveling tailors who provide their services at the fraction of Savile Row cost. There are great tiemakers popping up everywhere on the Internet. I have a friend who's become his own shirtmaker. In other words, you're not IN traffic, you ARE traffic.

Roger,

You are correct, but there are more variables.

You can keep prices stable and simply have a longer wait time - not a good solution but it allows a small operation with no price increases.

You give up sleep and days off to keep prices stable and wait times reasonable.

In the long run training takes a lot of investment/time but is the best answer.

We use all the above.

Much more expensive in terms of time and investment is vertical integration - for a tie maker growing your own mulberry and silk worms, reeling, dyeing, weaving and printing in house and so on.

Vertical integration is our long term goal for around 90% of what we do.

Some Italian companies do well with weaving fabrics and making clothes - Kiton I think has a very nice tailoring school - which is wonderful both for their business and the future of clothes.

Hear hear...I am wrong in suggesting a little Boardwalk Empire is creeping into fashion with these fab plaids. Calling Mr White...Chalky White....

I have nothing against tie under crewneck but this gordian knot scrunchy thing looks ridiculous.
