-fusing in suit chests and shirt cuffs/collars,
-deliveries tend to be late, but it depends on how busy he is,
-collar stays that are sewn-in
-low, loose collar on suit/sport coats as default,
-low armholes on coats as default,
-loose cuffs and short sleeves on shirts as default.
The latter three things are his defaults because that's what most RTW is like and what most customers expect. If you ask him to change these things, he does.
But he has some tremendous advantages:
-totally honest, humble, and professional,
-very good fit,
-very nice construction, including durable, hand-sewn buttonholes, bar tacks, etc.
-very flexible about customer requests,
-his pants are maybe 1/20th the price of the best HK and European tailors, but are 90% as good imo.
-he can make wool blend pants and linen sport coats that are machine washable.
It's a great family business imo. He also has a son who is learning the trade.
