Weston Visits Rocco

When Weston Wells, photographer extraordinaire whom I have talked about on this blog before, sent me an email letting me know he had some photos that might interest me, I knew I was about to get my hands on something special.  Weston recently visited Rocco Ciccarelli and his custom tailoring operation out in Long Island City and, naturally, brought his camera along to document the whole thing.  Rocco's reputation precedes him and I'd hate to ruin the beautiful images below with some of my nonsense, so I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.  Not to mention, Michael Williams already broke down Rocco's genius perfectly back in 2008.  I'd like to thank Weston and Rocco for making this post possible.  Enjoy.

  3. It's nice to see Rocco involved in something other than explicit pornography.

  4. Personally, I think it's amazing to have a look at how these bespoke suits are made. I wonder if there are any younger tailors working there?
