Depends on what cloth. Cotton doesn't hold the dye very well. One pair of pants I let out the seat seam. They were only good for gardening after that with nobody around. At least nobody stood behind me to notice the dark strick up the seat seam.
Really, there are wealthy people who will buy a garment, or suit, for one time use. There is no reason to make these garments for everlasting. It always pays to ask what the garment is for. Rare, but it does happen. For women, one garment for sure, the mighty Wedding Dress. But even men sometime buy a one time use now and then. Really wealthy people, whatever you charge them, is peanuts. A guy here in this "town" bought every quarter a new wardrobe. Four times a year he emptied his closest. He was buying six to eight suits each time. Something like 28 suits a year (not to mention other clothes).
