I've got a situation on my hands which involves a MTM tailor. Need your quick opinion.
I had engaged a MTM tailor in another country for a tuxedo. I knew the risk dealing overseas but hear me out first.
We email corresponded for 2 weeks and waited another 6 weeks for the tuxedo. I got it and it was an amazing product! The fabric and material were to my exact specification. One problem - the jacket was too short. By now, I've made full payment for the tuxedo.
So I emailed the MTM tailor the day after acknowledging the good work and admitting that it was my mistake and quickly follow up with a request to make another jacket, without pants, but lengthen the back.
Okay, by now you might be thinking I'm wasting money just to add a few inches to an otherwise amazing product. The truth is:
- I know myself and I know I'll feel better and be more confident with the longer jacket.
- Given the quality and brand, I can easily sell the jacket at 80% value. Tricky as it's a tux but I know how to appeal to fashion forward market.
- I could retain the jacket and loan it to my groom's men for the wedding.
It's been three days and the MTM has remained silent. Why? Does he think I'm too fussy? Is he tired after completing a MTM product to do another just to add a few inches to the coat? I don't see what's wrong with my request as after all isn't he going to profit from another order, granted just the jacket.
Let me know what ya'll think and how should I approach this.
