'Suited'

Hosted by

For most people, buying clothes is not a big deal. But when you’re transgender, or gender non-conforming, it’s a different story. Fitting who you are takes on more meaning when you feel like you are not who your body says you are. A New York tailor has built a business catering to these customers. They come in to buy custom-fitted suits, and it’s often a profoundly emotional experience. Jason Benjamin captured that experience in his documentary Suited, which premiered this week at Sundance.
