I was recently given a copy of the lovely documentary about Neapolitan tailoring, O Mast, an extract from which can be seen above. For the first time it is now available at the Drake’s store on Clifford Street in London, having been previously only available through The Armoury store in Hong Kong, or its website. Those two brands should tell you that good friend Mark Cho is behind the distribution of the documentary, and he tells me they are working on another to be released next year. Good news indeed.
Written, produced and directed by Gianluca Migliarotti, O Mast is a beautiful hour-long wander through the ateliers of Naples, with the best of the breed interviewed on everything from local culture to the relevance of different fittings. If I was a tailor, I would like to be filmed like this.
