    Worst case maybe demanding (fussy) customers without knowledge . They grap some terms from the internet and throw to tailors without understand it .

    Some guys ask as many pockets + non-use details as possible in order to squeeze every drop they pay.

    Recent discussion of Baotao (CMT) is interesting but it just shows the fact there is so few good tailor in Hong Kong.
    Customers feel being ripped off. Tailors (salesperson) hate knowledgeable customers. There is no "be-speaking" relationship here.

    It is just so common tailors/salesman forget what he told me to do. Not only traveling one but local one.
    Beyond certain point, I would give up dealing with them (local or traveling). I have not heard of "do whatever customer wants" tailor from Europe so I found his experience interesting.

    Good BaoTou work for good tailor shops, bad BaoTou work for bad tailor shops. There are so few good BaoTou in HK, therefore, there are so few good tailor shops in HK.

    BaoTou do have different cuttings, therefore, we see different cuttings from different tailor shops . We make our choice what to pick.

    No I am not talking about style issue.

    I had couple pair of pants by a tailor from Italy when he did a trunk show in hk. It took almost a year to complete and I felt something not quite right around my hip area, fabric bunches up badly. However, both tailor and salesman made a lot of excuses avoiding do the alteration.
    i told them to fix the pants otherwise full refund would be requested.

    The pants are almost perfect after do the alteration.
    But that's not the way to do business right?
