Directed by Jason Benjamin

The HBO documentary film Suited, directed by Jason Benjamin, spotlights Bindle & Keep, a tailoring company based in Brooklyn that caters to the LGBTQ community, creating custom-made suits for gender non-conforming and transgender clients. From Derek, a groom-to-be, to Everett, a law student in a conservative environment, to Mel, who simply wants to look good for her 40th birthday party—the need for well-fitting garments represents deeper meaning around identity and empowerment. Produced by Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner, the film documents a cultural shift that is creating a new demand—and response—for each person’s right to go out into the world with confidence. Courtesy of HBO Documentary Films.
