In time of collapse, old careers are back…misfortunes of some, benefits for others.

Many Lebanese forgot about buying new clothes,
The old display option is back after suspending its sale for a period of time,
The economic hardship made the price of branded shoes, higher than the value of an average citizen’s salary.

The cycles of difficulties have swept over the Lebanese
And with it, the wheel of fortune hit the tailors
The clothing repair profession is back
The luxury of letting go, is something of the past

The collapse restored détente of a profession, that lost its luster in past periods
The price hike pushed all sectors to save in everything, and sometimes to austerity to the point of patching up.
