Why aren’t these industries being disrupted?
In the spirit of Marie Kondo, why isn’t it easier to prolong the life of what brings us joy — where are the modern tailors, cobblers, and dry-cleaners?
Maybe I’m in the minority. I still go to the tailor periodically for repairs or adjustments to my garments. I had a pair of boots resoled recently. And I visit the dry-cleaner every few weeks to have nicer items laundered.
