    Great documentary. If you didn't see it you can stream it here:

    Some great color photos of the Duke of Windsor's huge wardrobe that was auctioned off.

    Haven't watched the full hour yet, but it's quite enjoyable [for a novice to bespoke suits.]

    Love it!

    EDIT: Now I watched the whole thing.... and I still do! :D At least the approach which the journalist has. Looking into history etc.

    Ya, but that one tool with the tight striped jacket made him look horrid. Those tight ass pants and jacket that was about 3 sizes too small? And to top it off an hankie around the neck? OOoooo....

    I liked it, too, although I wish they would have invested a little more time in the bespoke chapter. The thing was titled "The perfect suit" after all, wasn't it?

    +1 on the stylist. One look at him was enough

    As I said at least the approach. But I also think that it was good that he showed the contrast between people who make bespoke suits and the trash which is sold at TOPMAN as "suits".
