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.
You're a.ssuming that he would be able to increase his business and still create the same quality suits by having so many people working for him. I never said there is NOTHING he could do, I'm simply stating that hiring more people or charging more isn't the obvious choice. Don't talk to me like I'm simpleton. I was a marketing major in college and understand how business works. You can't just a.ssUME, that if he did one thing it would increase his profits or business...if he could hire 4 people, he has to pay 4 people, and you're a.ssuming he'd pull in THAT much more money. He might make 10-15 grand more if he was LUCKY, having to pay skilled crafters and that is a.ssuming people would be as interested in a suit made by 5 people as one made by 1 person. ANYTHING he does could change his business for better or worse, and you are looking at it as if it could only get better. You a.ssume theres a market for $4,000 suits made by 5 people, but that might not be the case.

as people have mentioned, if he can get some guys with skills to work for him for less money, he can make way more suits and turn a bigger profit. Most likely easier said then done.

Or, he could move out of NY, to another state where $50,000 a year, with "questionable" tax payments, can have you living like you make $90,000 in NY easily.

despite it all, he works and works hard, with skills...so he gets my props for that.

The problem is that he's thinking like a Self-Employed person and not as a Businessman/Leader. You can only do so much as one man so he should be a.ssembling a team of skilled people who can replicate these suits so that he can produce more than two a month. Once you build a working system you start setting yourself up for the day where you can walk away from your business but still have it generate money.
I'm gald you read the whole thing and re wrote his dream. Good job.

Wow 2 suits a month. Thats crazy..

Much respect to him and his talent.
It's not that crazy. They said it takes 75-80 hours to make one. That's typical job hours.

He is pricing them extremely wrong though. If at the end of the year he makes only 50K a year, he's a bad business man. He should be making about 120K or MORE because he has to pay for his healthcare/401K. He does something very FEW people can do well.

He's playing himself.

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

Lookin back on it now i realized i didnt include weekends. I he doin weekends 5 hours a day ain bad. But what does he do for the rest of his day then? Hopefully figuring out ways to make his business grow

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.
spoken like a true employee....now a business man would say fu*k craft....how can i cut expenses and make more and expand

I agree with what everyone is saying; in that he can definitely be churning out more production-wise, but it might be easier said than done in his case.

We don't know the ins and outs of his current monthly overheads and he might be paying out more than he's actually retaining at the moment. Clearly he's not in the position to go the extra mile right now. Hiring workers can alleviate one problem but can also create another but on a much larger scale.

Things like additional equipment costs, higher cost in utilities, a larger workspace/office, an accountant to do payroll and more salaries are all things he would have to consider before hand. He needs a financial adviser to go in and look at his ENTIRE situation, go over the books and numbers with him and look at all the ways he can improve on his efficiency and ultimately make more profits and take his business to the next level. Making an informed decision from a business professional should be his first step to making that dream a reality.

Easy problem to fix!

-Charge more
-Create more of a business. Hire employees so production will speed up.
-Buy more of the cotton to create less cost


Hes in New York City. Im sure some type of tailor would highly appreciate a n*gga like this working in their store. He should be making at least 100k a year

Maybe he should consider moving somewhere cheaper then scheduling 1 week per month to fit people that wants suits in the city.
most good suits are made with wool

if he can only make 2 suits per month then he isnt charging enough to begin with
