if you had a tailor who showed up constantly in tennis shoes, shorts and a tee (still properly fitted) would you still trust them with making your clothes?

or does what the tailor wears matters?

It is the result that matters - he can wear what he likes if he produces suits that I like in terms of style quality and price.

It's like the old saying a shoemaker's son never has shoes. Or something like that. I believe Thomas Mahon at one point pointed out this suit he was wearing in a photo and how it was his only suit because he never has time to do anything for himself.
