This looks to be a beautiful film that I now must watch as I was not aware of its existence before, thank you.

My father was a Savile Row tailor and just retired from a career that spanned his entire life since his teens. It is unfortunately so true that the art is dying as there is not enough new young blood to replace the old masters.
