    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.

    I don't think that I have ever seen Nick Wooster so conservatively dressed.
