Men of the Cloth Screening

| May 12, 2014 | Parties

The documentary, Men of the Cloth, made its debut in Chicago at the Chicago Cultural Center’s Claudia Cassidy Theater. More than 300 attendees packed into the theater to watch the film by Vicki Vasilopoulos. Men of the Cloth is an inspiring portrait of three Italian master tailors. The film centers around Nino Corvato, Joe Centofanti, and Checchino Fonticoli, master tailors who have spent a lifetime perfecting the skills necessary to construct flawless custom-made suits for their clients in New York City, Philadelphia and Penne, Italy.Following the film, a panel of tailors and menswear experts discussed the film and the bespoke industry, led by Trideep Das, managing director of JollyBrowne. The panel included director Vicki Vasilopoulos, head tailor Joseph Genuardi of Martin Greenfield Clothiers, Nicholas Hansen of Nicholas Joseph, bespoke tailor Chris Despos, Jeffery Diduch of the Made By Hand blog and Vice President of Technical Design at Hart Schaffner Marx, and master tailor in training Larry Tobis of Oxxford Clothes. The conversation centered on the current state of the tailoring industry, technology versus old-world craft, working with clients, and the cost for bespoke menswear. A networking reception concluded the evening.
