A new trailer for Men of the Cloth, the film, by Vicki Vasilopoulis, in some part, crowd funded, about three very different, yet incredibly similar Italian men who have, or had a passion for Tailoring ( unfortunately master tailor Joseph E. Centofanti died in October last year ) The film should be at festivals later this year followed by a release on DVD.

SummerBrown 

A few weeks ago I decided to place an experimental order for some summer trousers from StyleForum ‘Affiliate Vendor’Luxire Custom Clothing, a specialist clothing manufacturer based in India, apparently the factory manufactures for several well known designers, specialising in shirts, but are ready and willing to go to just about any lengths to produce any tailored garment.

All in all, I am very happy with the results, the waist could be winched in a little, I have lost some weight recently, quite a lot, & hadn’t compensated enough.

I will be ordering again.
