Support My Film About Italian Master Tailors (Officially Endorsed by Styleforum) - Page 4

Thanks very much to Styleforum editor Pete Anderson for posting an interview with yours truly about my documentary film-in-progress, MEN OF THE CLOTH: http://www.styleforum.net/t/265027/styleforum-interview-with-director-of-men-of-the-cloth-vicki-vasilopoulos

If you are able to support Vicki by donating some money or support her on another way by finishing and promoting her film, please do. On this way she can soon show a lot of people in the world about this wonderful craft and that will be a part of supporting this wonderful craft and keep it alive. She made this with a lot of passion and I think people who don't have a passion for tailoring already, but who will see this, will become passionate as well about this wonderful craft.

Bumping for urgency.

Can't check the IndieGoGo site right now for some reason, but when I looked at it last night, there's a week left and the campaign still needed around $13K.

Update: I can access IndieGoGo again and only $6,385 has been raised. So, almost $14K left to go!

That's around 10 dozen shirts or a dozen John Lobbs at full retail. Surely SF member can cough up that much as a group. Perhaps those who post clothing porn can join the No Purchase club for a month, and those in the No Purchase club can donate their saved money towards this effort.

Thanks very much for the plug! The custom jackets from the workshops of master tailors Nino Corvato and Joe Centofanti (two of my film's main characters) are still available. These perks are offered at the actual retail price, donated by the masters themselves.

Think of all the mindless, big-budget movies littering the cultural landscape. Wouldn’t you rather see an independently produced film that honors the legacy and accomplishments of three inspiring Old World artisans with a lot of heart and soul? My film is titled MEN OF THE CLOTH because these master tailors display a passion for their craft that’s akin to a religion. I think we can all relate to that sentiment. Please join MEN OF THE CLOTH's 67 funders from 7 countries and help bring this film to fruition.

Are all the perks posted, or are there still some held back because no perk has been fully claimed?

If we get within $1000 of the mark, Styleforum will pitch in the rest. We will hold some sort of bizarre contest, in typical Styleforum way, "show us your closet/socks/shoetrees", and the winner (by poll, of course) will get the jacket, and will get to document the process for Styleforum for the rest of us poor guys without Corvato or Centofanti jackets (I say we because admins and mods are no eligible to win). We will all critique his fit, of course. It would not be Styleforum otherwise.
We will do this for 2 weeks." I'm going to tweet it on @styleforumnet. Please help me retweet this thread, and let's get this rolling.

How close is SF to the mark?

Bumping. Just because it makes me feel good.

Bumping to see if we can take this fund raising past the 50% mark.
post #55 of 69
Now that we're past the halfway mark, bumping to see if we could raise $9,000 in 8 hours. biggrin.gif

This is really a great little project that I think that we should support. Some great little perks as well. Styleforum now has a Centofanti shirt that we'll probably offer up as a contest prize sometime.

Actually, you know what? We'll auction it off. Maybe double the contribution. Put your bids in here.

Cheers,

Fok.

Is this a custom shirt? If so, does someone have to visit Centofanti to get the shirt made, or is long-distance tailoring possible?

And, because this is SF and I'm a noob, what is the quality of Centofanti shirts these days? Can owners speak up?

I would not ever advise long distance for a shirt of this quality. If you are going to do a lower tier garment, and have a decent tailor who can do your measurements, that's one thing. But something from the level of a Centofanti or a Corvato? That is something you should show up for in person. In any case, I'll probably gift this to one of my people.

Cheers,

Fok.
