Documentary about Chinatown's last tailors to air on the Knowledge Network

TAILOR MADE is a film by Leonard Lee and Marsha Newberry.

It's about Bill and Jack Wong. They've been running Modernize Tailors for almost 60 years.

Modernize Tailors has been a cornerstone of Vancouver's Chinatown and fashion scene but it looks like it is all coming to an end.

The film follows what may be the final (NOT) year of the shop.

Bill and Jack take on their last apprentice (me), make their last suits for Vancouver's elite, and open a museum in their honor before they finally put away the scissors and retire.
