WEB DESK: For the Darzi’s those sleepless nights have returned. The last days of Ramzan are every tailor’s nightmare.
Eid means dressing up in your best clothes. But pretty clothes are easier said then done.
This is when the expertise of the regular Darzi comes to test. He has to know the latest trends and styles. The exact length of the shirt in these days- shalwars or cigarette pants- lots of tough questions.
But there is an added skill which he just can’t do without—public relations. All hell will break loose if he cannot disperse a fight.
So what makes the tailoring job so difficult? Here is why.
Each and every detail of the entire client list’s dresses should be on his finger tips.
He should keep in mind that his charges need to be reasonable else he will lose costumers.
The most important part besides good stitching is meeting the deadline.
He works late. And sometimes at chand raat they work day and night to get lose cloth transformed in to the best for their customers.
Nevertheless, tailors make the most of this season by charging high money and excusing blunders in stitching by saying “ Baji apney asa he tou kaha tha.”
