A:I'm very fond of clothes of your Chinese style, and I’d like to buy a TangZhuang overcoat.
B:You are quite big-boned
. I don't think it easy to find anything ready-made that will fit you. I suppose you'd better have one made to measure.
A:But where can I find a tailor to make me a coat?
B:You can have one made up for you in our tailoring department. And firstly you are to choose a piece of material.
A:What have you got in the way of material? I want something warm but not too heavy.
B:This is of good quality. It wears well and keeps its shape.
A:Do you have something a little lighter? This seems too dark for spring wear.
B:How about this one? It is wrinkle
-free and needs no ironing.
A:This is beautiful. It will do. How many meters do I need for myself?
B:Let me take your measurements first. Will you please take off your jacket?
A:I prefer it a bit looser, you know, just comfortably loose, especially round the collar.
B:Let me see. The material is one meter wide. 1.9 meters would be quite enough.
A:What's the charge for the material and the tailoring?
B:All told, the price is 1270 yuan, including the lining
. Please pay a deposit
of 1000 yuan. The remainder
can be paid when the overcoat is ready.
A:OK. Could you possibly have it finished earlier? I'm going back to my country in four days.
B:I'll rush through
for you. You can pick it up tomorrow afternoon.
