Mini Docu: Making A Bespoke Shirt By Paul Kruize

After previous short documentaries how to make a pair of jeans, tailor Paul Kruize comes with a follow-up: Making A Bespoke Shirt. This time the craftsman shows each step of making a bespoke shirt. In case you have missed the previous two, watch them here and here.

The new documentary shows again the entire process of making a special and custom made shirt. From measuring, cutting the pattern and fabric, sewing to fasten the buttons on the shirt by hand. The entire process is captured in almost 20 minutes.

This mini-documentary is made by Richard Bussink who filmed Paul Kruize for two days.

He makes bespoke jeans, shirts and other garments by taking the right measurements of your body so the specially made item will finally fit like a glove. You can choose your favorite fit and style, spare parts like buttons, rivets, and thread and of course your favorite fabric. The result is your ultimate item that will be your new favorite.
