    1. Can't bring your own cloth
    2. Hoodwinked me into thinking three yards of fabric were needed just to make trousers (this was before I knew better), with resulting higher charge.
    3. Expensive charges for said fabric, which was of the anonymous selvedge "130s" fly by night type, but which raise doubts as to whether they're even all wool
    4. Upcharge at the last minute for lining the trousers, even though I was having them copy a pair that were lined and they should have told me as such at the time of order.
    5. Stitches that gave out in several places soon after order, necessitating repairs.
    6. Failure to have trousers ready at time they said they would.


    Maybe because you're not Indian. Indians know how to negotiate in these situations.

    RJ man and I had very different expereinces - for starters, I used my own cloth for much of what I had made at Kachins, and I haven't had any seems give out or any other problems, nor did they charge me extra for details like pants lining. but I was a pretty good customer of thiers for a few years.

    Thanks for the info. So how much for a fully bespoke suit made with good fabric. Zegna for instance.
