"MEN OF THE CLOTH shows how the values embodied by these master tailors -– pride, authenticity and passion — exist in stark contrast to those embodied by technology and mass production. The philosophy of an artisan-tailor is rooted in a “pre-capitalist” ethos, and so he naturally identifies with the clothing that he creates. In the words of one sociologist, “it’s his soul, it’s his intellect, it’s his essence.” Among the questions the film raises: What is the price of progress? What is the value of handmade clothing? And is it viable in a global economy?"
As I watched, I was taken by how professional the men were, always dressed in an impeccable pair of slacks, shirt and tie. They embodied respect for themselves as well as their profession.
The documentary will be available for purchase. It is truly a must see.
