A letter i have sent to management at La Moda tailors in Kata. I would recommend that any tourist steer clear of this tailor:-
Dear Sirs, I write after purchasing two suits from La Moda Tailors in Kata.
I purchased one suit for myself and one for my wife.
The issue which I have and have reported to the UK tourist board and my travel agent is the behaviour of your staff member who served me.
I do not have his name, there were two number tailors, it was the smaller gentleman who carries out the sales process and does all of the negotiation.
During the third visit to your tailors I advised that I would pay for the suits when they were delivered to my hotel as initially agreed.
Your colleague demanded money immediately and started to shout and point his finger aggressively. When I advised him not to be confrontational, he ran for a pair of scissors and held them towards me. I was concerned for my and my wife's safety and astonished this incident was actually taking place.
My wife and I left your tailor shop immediately and went to a restaurant.
The aforementioned tailor searched us down on his motorbike and approached us in the restaurant where he continued to shout and demanded money. The restaurant staff asked him to leave for which he eventually did.
The only reason I paid and took the suits was because I had paid a deposit and your colleagues refused to refund me.
I have never experienced such behaviour in my life and the restaurant staff were shocked.
As stated above, I have reported this incident to UK authorities whom I have been advised will report this to other tourist boards to warn tourists from visiting your tailors.
I would state that the other tailor was equally shocked at the behaviour of your colleague and he did try to resolve the issue.
