Men of the Cloth documentary: Preserving the heritage of tailoring

Men of the Cloth is a documentary in post-production and conceived by director/producer Vicki Vasilopoulos. It shines a spotlight on three tailors at the peak of their craft and pays homage to the old world concept and practice of artisanal craftsmanship. The tailors featured are NYC tailor Nino Corvato, Philadelphia-based tailor Joe Centofanti and former Brioni head tailor Checchino Fonticoli.

The film has not been released yet but you can check out video excerpts of the film on their website.

If you have the means and inclination, consider contributing to the completion of this rare, sartorially minded film. Mine will be in the mail soon enough!
