Naples, Jazz and The Tailored Suit

By art life and stilettos · November 30, 2010 · 0 Comments ·


Here is a preview of what looks to be a very interesting documentary on the craft of men's suit tailoring. The doc looks at a group of tailors in Naples, Italy who still hand stitch each custom suit for their customers. This is one of the remaining instances of skilled sewing and design taking place in Italy by Italians, since some high end designers have traded their local atelier for off-shore production, while others have instead opted to employ illegal immigrants in Italy, for the sake of the "Made in Italy" label.  I still love me some designer goods though...

The music is fabulous, as is the cinematography. Directed by Gianluca Migliarotti of Kid Dandy.
