Default Top Stitch Upholstery WOW...O_o Racially Insults Customer on FB

My friend got his seats done at this company and ended up having the leather rip at the seams due to poor quality leather and thick stitching.
1st off, my buddy got his seats done in the wrong stitching but shrugged it off:
But 2nd and most important, this is what the company said after my friend posted the shotty workmanship on facebook after they refused to help him or sent him away because supposedly, their owner wasn't in.
3rd, the seats weren't even Nappa leather which is what he paid for.

Completely unprofessional and they also lied about my friend switching styles. As for being cheap, it was only over 100 dollars. He was spent $1100 instead of $1200. Now if I were to ever spend that much, the work better look better than factory. My friend just wanted to get the best deal he could for the seats and was upset with the workmanship. BEWARE OF THIS COMPANY.

Its not like this was the only car he's gotten done by them, he's had them work on his headliner, on the mini, and the interior on his Brabus Smart car too.
Update:
~7PM today calls the owner of the seats and threatens him....Google Voice Voicemails FTW

Goodness.. someone call the grammar police. When people type/spell like that I really have to assume that they are not intelligent individuals, so it doesn't surprise me to read an unprofessional rant of that caliber.

That is ridiculous. Who would say that on the FB page of their own business? What an idiot.

That can't be all that was posted. OP show the entire FB thread on here, not just the one post.

I don't think he made a racist remark. A Chinese coffee shop is a Chinese coffee shop, just like an Italian restaurant is an Italian restaurant - not really racist - although he did call him a f_g.

Sucks about the seats. I'd be pissed too for $1100 worth of work.

What if OP's friend is Asian? Can you conceive of how someone might possibly take that as a directed racial comment?

I thank the motorcycle leathers industry for teaching me what good ticking and top stitching is.

there is SO MUCH CRAP out there that is either low quality treated leather or inferior quality that is being passed off as good quality it's not funny.

I just got a leather couch from macy's about a year ago, and even at a better goods OVER PRICED retailer like macys home, I had to seriously hunt for a piece that I was willing to part money for.

I always try and look for a folded top stitch with double ticking... which is how my couch is made.

Friend is Asian-
That's why the Top Stitch Guy said Chinese -He's Chinese and Not Vietnamese (as most of the known cafe's here are Vietnamese based)

Interesting that when someone (Angel Baby-Dao) says "they should give you some Korean BBQ on top of that!", no one cries racist, but when the shop says chinese - the **** hits the fan.

The kid even admits the shop offered to fix it with thinner stitches. Why didn't he let them fix it? He's a repeat customer, so obviously he's been happy enough with their work in the past to go there again.

I hope that shop loses it's customers over this, it's very unprofessional and from what it sounds like, the customer didn't even hang out at his shop and for 1100 dollars I too would expect a perfect job.

I don't think it takes 4 months to get a job like that done, that looks like a few days job at most.

If I was him, I would take him to court and have them settle it there because it doesn't sound like he's getting it fixed from them anytime soon.

And it is racist when you mention the person's race into the conversation in a negative way.

$1100 for a custom leather job isn't bad. I can tell you that dealer cost on Katzkin leather kits installed are not far off from that price.

I also totally agree with Tim's comment above.

Looking at the double stitching on the bottom I that pic, the quality looks mediocre at best. Definitely not a super job.
