Stockman, When You Want The Best You Have To Speak French

One of the hardest things to do in this business is to negotiate in another language. When it comes to Italians I use my hands and google translate. When it comes to the French, I use my hands and I use google translate.... And, I use my French, which, often the French will tell you in a boutique, just as you are about to pay for something, 'Non non, your French is parfait Monsieur' but when you are on the phone to the French, when you are trying to order something very particular with the French, when the French are tired, have worked more than 7 hours that day or have something particularly important to do next, well, then, your French is never good enough. 

The best mannequins are French and their home is on Fauborg St Honore and the company is called Stockman. The Stockman mannequins are fantastic and if you are ever in need of a torso covered to your own fabric, look no further, just make sure you speak French and know exactly what you are asking for!
