    He’s relying on cash and wire transfers.

    I already got my order. It just needs some tweaking which would be expensive for my tailor to do.

    How many months did your first order take to complete?

    Most tailors that travel are wire transfer only

    Maybe just weather the storm for now and wait for the garments to be fixed.

    Funny thing is, I bet you subsequent garments are faster because you can go straight to forward fitting and the pattern should be decent.

    Problem is that I don’t plan on using him again. The process was too painful.

    I have one suit from him that needs some tweaks. Not sure when he’s returning to NY and how many months it will take to turn around.
