Pride in craft
26 October 2014 | by webbwv57See all my reviews

I had been waiting to view this film after learning of it from my husband's tailor. Finally Men of the Cloth came to Minneapolis as part of the exhibit Italian Style: Fashion since 1945 at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.

Vicki Vasilopoulos brings to our attention the art of the custom tailor and the dilemma facing the trade as the old guard ages without enough apprentices to pass on their knowledge. She introduces us to three well established Italian (in Italy and the US) tailors and gives us a glimpse of their dedication and talent as well as a few of their modern apprentices.

In recent years, there has been some revival of the hand crafted in this country and hopefully this film will inspire such a revival in the custom suit trade. The tailors, the clients and their suits restore some beauty and humanity back into our lives.
