On Tailoring | Part 2

Maybe I should have said:

"Robots and technology are being too heavily relied upon for things that ONLY humans should adequately master and perform, thereby eliminating the potential for the beauty of the human touch to fully realize its potential."


"A fully automated garment manufacturer can produce a suit jacket in under 9 minutes. NINE MINUTES. When I sit down to design and build a suit jacket according to tradition's standards and proudly cherished rules, it can easily take the better part of 40 hours, if not longer. How the hell can I compete with that?"

The caveat being, of course: The automated machinery does not make the same coat MC makes.

Here's another caveat: A suit jacket made in nine minutes, regardless of the price tag, still looks like a suit jacket made in nine minutes.
