lol look at these dumb n*ggas in here who don't understand that he spent 10 years as an apprentice to learn his craft and he can't just "bring in people" to make it easier. That would if anything slow down the process. He can't just "charge more" he might lose business and end up breaking even. I can't believe so many people don't understand what it means to be a master craftsman...he sells an expensive product to a certain clientele.
Obviously there is a problem here if his business has hit max productivity but is not generating enough income for him to live in the manner he wants. The reason you are oblivious to this is due to the fact you have already made up your mind that nothing can be done and are now looking for evidence to substantiate your claim. Any rational thinker would look at the scenario, look at all the evidence, and then come to a conclusion. Yes, you might be right that he might not be able to find someone who can build full on suits to his caliber but what if he found someone who can make a really good sleeve, a really good jacket, a really good leg, and then he pieces it together? That would speed up the process a ton and increase productivity. There's boutique fashion providers who have small staffs and intricate product who are making millions...that's because they have built systems. They refine their processes and implement a team to operate it. Acting like there is nothing that this brotha can do is senseless and defeatist mentality.
