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.

One of my friends was telling about this guy's work. For all the investors he does work for, you would think that one of them would take the opportunity.
Nah it's not a good investment tho. This is 1 guy. What happens when you make a $250,000 investment and then he gets hit by a car walking home? Sure you can pay him to teach people, but they may not be as good at all, and where are you going to find that many workers anyways?

in addition to the custom suits i would produce a less expensive, non-tailored suit to sell at specialty boutiques and online. i would then start a subscription service, members pay a flat fee every month or every year and they get to order a certain amount of custom suits a year.

it's def not 5 hours a day man.

It takes him 75 hours to make a suit, and he makes 2 suits a month. That's one suit every 2 weeks, which means he spends 75 hours in 2 weeks making a suit. So he works about 40 hours a week which means he works about 8 hours a day for a full month. Then he continues to do it all year

He needs a fabric connect with the chinaman. His price is to high. I could catch a nice prada or Gucci for $2000 instead of paying $4000 for a no named guy.

1 Month = 30 Days = 720 Hours

1 Suit = 75 hours / 2 Suits = 150 hours

720 / 150 = 4.8 = ~ 5 hours a day for 2 suits

5 hours a day * 30 days = 150 hours

I dont think he should charge more, but maybe hire more people so he can make more suits.
