I recommend driving the hardest bargain you can, because you should never be returning.Originally Posted by whoopee

I think he said it was $8k, either way, it was nice cashmere fabric, 15 mil, so too warm anyways. The thing that caught me most off guard is that he talks to me and seems genuinely interested in things. He tells me about his kids, etc, but he is just a cutthroat businessman apparently.Originally Posted by tiecollector
The cost of zippers, lining, buttons, etc is negligible. It's like him buying you a lunch at Starbucks. His mentioning it is honestly ridiculous; trimmings should certainly be included in the standard suit, unless you wanted something really special, and it doesn't sound like you did.Originally Posted by whoopee
Say you'll pay $250 for the materials, otherwise you will reneg on your work because he broke a verbal contract with you.Originally Posted by mrchapel
I'm sure you have the feel for your own situation best, but don't sell yourself short. It doesn't matter if someone can do the job for $100. it’s what the client or in this case, the tailor is willing to pay for. You have already done your part. I don't see how it will be reasonable for him to negate part of the agreement. I'll ask for two suit. I hope everything works out amicably.Originally Posted by hughjoen
