It's often said that you can tell a good hairdresser by how bad her hair looks. She spends all of her time taking care of her clients hair that there's little left for her to do her own. Of course that's not a proven truth and is mostly is a humorous stereotype. But what is true is that even though I spend countless of hours making clothes for others to look professional and their very best. There's just something refined about a fitted suit jacket on a man or woman. Or a nice tailored pair of pants. It can make them look and feel like a million bucks.
I like to look the same way as well. So my uniform of choice is always a nice crisp shirt, polo, or vest and a pair of tailored pants. That's what I wear everyday and have been doing for decades. This is the professionalism I want all of my clients to see. I appreciate having the opportunity to help people look their very best. And I appreciate having the skill to be able to do the same for myself. Here'a picture of a a full suit I made myself a few years back. As you can see suits and vests are indeed my specialty.
I may not know of all of the "tailor stereotypes" that exist out there (I know the "always wearing the tape measure around the neck" is one) but what I do know is I love to do work for my clients and I equally love create for myself.
