Working with your hands can take a lot of forms. Just take it from Anthony Bourdain as he visits Frank Shattuck, a boxer and tailor famous for his “bench-made suits” in this unique process video.
The series is called “Raw Craft” and features great conversations about the dedication to craftsmanship and simply about how suits should fit. Shattuck lives in a beautiful cabin in upstate New York where he crafts bespoke suits after 15 years of apprenticeship.
The two met 17 years prior at a bar, after which Anthony couldn’t get the idea of one of these finely crafted suits out of his mind.
With immense attention to detail (1,200 stitches for a lapel), Shattuck pours his heart and effort into quality craftsmanship, even where others might cut corners. And it’s always fun to watch Anthony Bourdain on his travels.
