Old timers

Tailoring is an age old tradition, an occupation that seems to have survived centuries…I spotted this old tailor in his old shop representing the same. There are many families here which for generations have their own trailers managing their customized clothing needs with long lasting relationships…

Oh, how interesting. I wonder how elderly he is and how long he's been doing this.

Thanks keeps me going!

pat, he must be above his 70's and yes, since he has his own shop it is a safe guess that he must have spent his generation there!!

this is a really nice snap. I feel sorry because I guess in few years you will not find things like this on Bangalore´s streets.
