Movie Info

Suited tells the story of Bindle & Keep, a Brooklyn tailoring company that caters to a diverse LGBTQ community. Clothier duo Rae and Daniel take a holistic approach to their work, considering each client's personal narrative, which becomes inextricable from the creation of the perfect custom-made suit. From Derek's emotional journey as he prepares for his wedding to Everett, a law student in a conservative environment, or Melissa, who simply wants to look good for a 40th birthday party-the need for well-fitting garments represents deeper issues of identity, empowerment, and the importance of feeling happy in one's body.

Critic Reviews for Suited

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4)

It will take more than an informative and engaging documentary on a pair of custom tailors to prevent another Orlando, but Suited makes a valuable contribution to understanding what it means to be transgender in the U.S. in 2016.

Often moving film about transgender identity - almost nothing about fashion.

Slickly upbeat as it guides six contrasting clients through the measuring and fitting process, frosh helmer Benjamin's film nonetheless gleans enough pointed personal testimonies along the way to add human weight to its makeover-TV format.

As an introduction to transgender and, to a lesser extent, gender fluidity issues -- not to mention a feature-length commercial for the very personalized services of Bindle & Keep -- the film works rather well.

The uplifting triumph is the looks and smiles on their faces when they finally see their reflection in the mirror match how they feel inside and how they've wanted to look.
