Re: Is the word "tailor" used for both men and women?
Genuine inquiry - not an attempt to be sarcastic - do you really use or hear that term where you live?
I've been married to someone who manages a men's retail store for a number of years, and I've only ever heard the tailors use "tailor," regardless of gender. The come from many countries - but none from the UK. So really, I'm asking in earnest.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
