Kellie: Listeners, please repeat:
Hamza: درزی (darzi)
[pause - 5 sec.]
Kellie: In Pakistan, there are tailors for both male and female clothing. Tailors charge depending on their experience and popularity. Tailor shops become crowded when "Eid" is near, so people take their clothes in for stitching around 2-3 months before. During the start of the summer and winter seasons, the tailor shops are also crowded. If you want to get your clothes stitched, it is advised to go to a famous tailor and pay some extra money to ensure quality stitching and timely delivery.

In rural areas, hairdressers would also be the town's cook. They would cut hair and cook huge amounts of food for functions such as weddings.
