How I Get Dressed/The Way I Dress
Dir: Chris Floyd
Starring: Patrick Floyd, Joseph Corre, Theo Hutchcraft
2010, United Kingdom
Synopsis: This series of short documentaries are portraits depicting different men and their approach to the daily ritual of dressing. “I was looking to film a quiet, dignified study of a gentleman at the most contemplative part of his day – the time he spends dressing and preparing to face the world – and not, as Joe Corre put it, 'poke around in my sock drawer.'"
Jack Taylor of Beverly Hills (112 min)

2007, United States
Synopsis: Through candid interviews and precious hours spent in Jack's dynamic presence, this film documents the colorful life of Jack Taylor, who in his nineties works everyday with as much precision, wit, and panache as ever. He is the conummate craftsman, measuring, custom fitting, and perfecting suits made of the finest fabric and material—suits that have again and again brought out the best in men's fashion. This is more than the story of a fashion pioneer; it is a bittersweet portrayal of old Hollywood, detailing the demise of not only custom tailoring, but an era.
