A dialogue between tailor and a customer
Tailor: Good morning, sir. What can I do for you?
Customer: I want to look at some cloth for a suit.
T: Certainly, sir. Any particular colour?
C: Yes, I want a dark brown.
T: Is it for lounge suit, sir?
C: An ordinary lounge suit, like I am wearing now.
T: Here is a very nice cloth, sir. Which wears well and looks neat.
C: Yes, it looks nice. But it is rather heavy. Haven't you anything lighter?
T: Yes sir, here is a very nice staff. It is a little more expensive but it is worth extra money.
C: What is the price?
T: Rs. 65 a yard-double width.
C: How much should I require for a suit?
T: Four yards will be ample. That sould be Rs. 260 for the suit length.
C: And what do you charge for making?
T: Rs. 100, sir and Rs. 35 for lining, buttons, etc.
C: I see. Rs. 395 altogether. I think I will take it.
T: Very good, sir. I will take you measurements.............Thank you sir. Can you come for a try on next Monday.
C: Let me see. I am afraid Monday will be awkward. Shall we say Tuesday?
T: Very good, sir. It will be ready for you on Tuesday. Is there anything else I can do for you? Shirts? Ties? Vests? Stockings?
C: No. I think not; thank you. Bye!
T: Goodbye, sir and thank you.
