Lessons from a Tailor

Galen Summer has directed this beautiful short film documenting tailor Martin Greenfield at his factory in New York. Martin’s a huge character, at one point he says with a proud smile “I take care of a lot of people who want to wear good clothes”. The film has a gentle pace to it, adding to Martin’s warmth. It’s all tied together with Ed David’s rich, deep photography.

I’d love to see a film like this telling the stories of Savile Row.

    Great find! What a great bloke. Though I never heard anyone fit a concentration camp experience into their carreer…
