Clothes have a profound impact on how we see ourselves and navigate the world, no matter how we gender-identify. Welcome to Bindle & Keep, a Brooklyn tailoring company that fills a niche making custom suits for gender-nonconforming and transgender clients. Founder Daniel Friedman originally planned to make his fortune tailoring suits for wealthy Wall Streeters, but it was the smart (and snappily suited) Rae Tutera, born Rachel, who expanded the company's reach to those who have a hard time finding suiting from more traditional sources. The film introduces us to several Bindle & Keep clients as they select their fabric, cut and colour while sharing what it's like to live as transgender or gender non-conforming in America today. From the fear of being found out, to losing job opportunities, to finding love and the perfect wedding suit, their personal stories underscore how notions of fashion, appearance and identity are profoundly intertwined.
