I just saw this message, I was gone and then sick for a few weeks after this was posted, then gone out of state instructing classes in NJ.
I have a website, but do not have any work posted on it, which I most likely should see about. Since opening, according to my records, I should have slightly over 127K orders place during the years since this business was established in 1969.
I have been fairly absent since earlier this year, in August, I had to undergo an operation and have recovered just in time for a celebrity wedding and the busy season. I am working at quite a brisk pace these last few weeks, this will last another 6 weeks, then slow a bit during Christmas.
The majority of my work is now alterations, I can do all the technically difficult orders that no one else either has the skill or incentive to attempt.
For example, the last few years, I have taken in about 45 jackets that need shoulders reduced and a half dozen lapels to be narrowed.
I currently have four more jackets to reduce shoulder that I have taken in since that time to complete for customers. I did an extensive post with photo's in cutter and tailor forum, not sure how to attach it here for you all to view.
For custom tailored, I make men's and ladies suits, skirts, casual trousers, etc.. I was trained through apprenticeship using nearly identical methods of makeup and construction as Mr. Hostek, RIP. I also used to make military uniforms for officers before changes in contracting prevented me from continuing.
I do custom requests for suits, trousers, and many other interesting orders during the year as time permits. I have also taken on interesting requests, such as safari jackets, and Japanese Hakama pants and Kimono tops for Akkido.
I recently made a dressing gown/robe, made of satin, Black with gold trim, including flared cuffs for a man to use for sports events.
I used Chaudhry's cutter and tailor book, Modern leisure & Cotton for men book for the draft. The project turned out very well and customer was quite pleased.
