Suited

Screenings

2016 Season
New York

Suited tells the story of Bindle & Keep, a Brooklyn tailoring company that caters to a diverse LGBTQ community. Clothier duo Rae and Daniel take a holistic approach to their work, considering each client’s personal narrative, which becomes inextricable from the creation of the perfect custom-made suit. From Derek’s emotional journey as he prepares for his wedding to Everett, a law student in a conservative environment, or Mel, who simply wants to look good for a 40th birthday party - the need for well-fitting garments represents deeper issues of identity, empowerment, and the importance of feeling happy in one’s body.
