Just caught this documentary on the Sundance channel. Jack Taylor is 92 years old (b. 1916), has been married to his wife for over 65 years and has dressed every leading Hollywood man and major male celebrity since the 40's, including Cary Grant, Jack Lemmon, Monty Hall, Joe Lewis, Ali, Elvis and hosts of others-you name it, he made custom clothes for them. Jack, along with his head tailor Sam, has custom made their suits, slacks, shirts-everything. Even at 90+ Jack goes to work everyday, and he does indeed work, and has impeccable taste in clothes. We are treated to his suppliers from Europe and given an insight into Jack's relationship with them just like with his high-end clients.
I really enjoyed watching this film because it gave you an honest insight into a person who supported the stars and developed sincere friendships that lasted a lifetime.
