we see both on SF - e.g. we can compare the two opposite approaches to Rooby that we have on the forum: whnay and iammatt on one side who just pick a fabric and stand there, letting the guy "do his thing"; foo on the other side who has to "fight" with Mariano to get the sleeves he wants and the details he thinks are better, then sends all his stuf back to have buttons added, etc... All seem happy with the output so I guess the "right" tailor is the one that makes both active and passive customers feel good about the clothes they get and the "experience". Even Foo, though, doesn't deviate from the house cut too much. He might waver on the details, but his Rubinacci still looks like Rubinacci. I think a more apt example of what I have in mind was the big Tom Ford debate, where Foo was insistent that a would-be Tom Ford customer would be better off going to a bespoke tailor for Tom Ford styling.
