What do you need to be qualified as a Tailor -Shirtmaker - Accesories or Footwear,etc
In my field I only see a few people very well qualified, but advise is coming from every angles
and sometimes very accurate.
Can any one open a " Bespoke X Y Z " do customers ask for crudiantial.
Or is price what drives this business, I know it is not.
What are the requirements to be bespoke or master .
Are diplomas or certificates of any value?

Marcel Szabo, the Hungarian shoemaker has asked this question. He stands in a long tradition with official requirements, diplomas, etc. He put in his years sweating to learn his skills and is putting more years in sweating to pass those on and maintain the tradition and its standards. He laments the lack of standards that allows anyone to claim almost anything. Maybe he'll post some thoughts here.

Btw, I wish I lived near you, I'd be a customer!
