I don't know how these tailors who travel so much deal with the post-trunk workload. Do they really just hand off all the complexities of the commissions to a "team" who executes them, pretty much autonomously, and to a very high standard of quality and specification-conformity, while the fitter deals with appointment schedules, the regional retail partners, and the travel? If so, these people are part of extremely well-managed organizations. Their true art is in building such organizations, while being absent most of the time. Anybody with general management responsibilities know that organizations are like old cars. You wake up every morning, and you wonder what became broken while you slept and what will break in the course of the day.
