A wonderful documentary
19 July 2015 | by meorensSee all my reviews

This is an excellent film. It will appeal to many people, on many different levels, but if you are interested in impeccably made clothing, master level craftsmanship, and honoring traditions, you will love this documentary. Such wonderful, talented men. I am so glad that the film-makers honored them by taking the time to document their skills before they are lost. Fine Tailoring is a time-consuming art, requiring years of training, and in this disposable world full of cheap clothing there is not as large a market for these beautiful clothes as there used to be. There are also not a lot of people anymore who are willing to spend the years required to learn these skilled trades. Hopefully, this will inspire people to not only learn to appreciate the skill involved, but maybe to even take up the art so this does not become a lost art.
