Two men worked together in the small tailor shop

There were two men working in a roadside tailor shop in Kolkata. It was a small tailor's shop that seemed too small for two grown men to work in. In India there are many small tailors like this one. According to the signboard, they make women's dresses and others. The two workers were wearing running shirts and frankly, they didn't look very stylish, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the people who make stylish things are stylish.

Standing in front of the store, I could see the whole inside of the small store. One was sitting in a chair working on a foot-operated sewing machine, while the other was standing there doing nothing. There seemed to be only one sewing machine, so the other one must be unattended while the other one is using it. The unattended man looks at me with a calm face.
