This threadbare city supplies its
own golden gifts. Clothiers, clusters of them, in kiosks are hung on the corner
of every street. Caftans, kabas and cardigans; suits, skirts and slits; jumpers,
jackets, jumpsuits and jeans; they make them all. Frocks, tunics and pajamas too. And there’s a tailor/dressmaker for every epoch, pocket and preference. Only
downside, your clothes will be ready in two weeks or three or six; it all
means the same thing to them.
