It looks great! I like the big Prince of Wales check pattern and the way it matches with the grey tie. Nice outfit.

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.

Sam, I agree with you. I find myself contemplating what i will do if demand increases drastically after I launch in March. As you pointed out, training is the best solution in the long run given continuous demand. Until I get to that point, I'll be sacrificing sleep because I don't feel that raising prices or waiting Times is a justifiable solution.
Wish me luck.

i would imagine you can place orders.

You can order if you're a retailer and you're buying a lot of stuff. It's not like you can go and order one drakes tie.

I mean you go and order if you're a retailer. I doubt anybody is there ordering exclusively for their personal use.
post #209 of 386

Oh now I understand. Well some baller must be there and cleaning out the place :D
