WORLD PREMIERE Italians Nino Corvato, Joe Centofanti, and Checchino Fonticoli are master tailors who have spent years perfecting all the skills necessary to construct flawless custom-made suits for their clients in NYC, Philadelphia and Penne, Italy, a fascinating process broken down step by step here. As they grow older, they fear their Old World knowledge will vanish with them. Enter Joe Genuardi, a tailoring apprentice who reflects the resurgence of popular interest in artisanal craftsmanship as an alternative to corporate mass production, providing hope for the future of the craft.
