Would it be too much of a hassle to go see a tailor in another city
Unless that other city was less than a 60 or 90 minute easy commute, I would not do it. Bespoke in general involves inviting hassles. Crossing state or city lines to see a tailor, especially a travelling tailor, is asking for trouble and aggravation.
Will you follow your cutter?
it would be interesting to hear. We had this debate before with Matt and he stated that he would stick with the House rather then following the cutter. My own experience is that many customers ends up following the cutter in his new ventures, not only when they set up on their own, but often even when they change Sartoria they work for. The person that introduced my family to my tailor had followed him across three Sartoria until he set up on his own.
He is not the first to leave Rubinacci and start a successful independent career and will not be the last
Yeah that's why you keep cutters and tailors locked away from clients!
