Men of the Cloth is an inspiring portrait of three Italian master tailors who confront the decline of the apprentice system in the twilight of their career. The film features U.S. tailors Nino Corvato and Joe Centofanti (who both work as traditional custom tailors) and Checchino Fonticoli, who spends his entire career at Brioni, the luxury clothing firm based in Italy. These artisans possess skills honed over the course of a lifetime, and create clothing that’s as beautiful inside as it is outside. Filmed over the course of eleven years,Men of the Cloth reveals how their passionate devotion to their Old World craft is akin to a religion.
This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Vicki Vasilopoulos and Sofio Barone, founder and head designer at Sofio’s Custom Clothiers and Tailors in Tyson’s Corner,VA, and moderated by Grant Harris, blogger and founder of the DC-based menswear consultancy, Image Granted.
