Mr. Greenfield - The Presidents' Tailor (2021)

Maximilian Grünfeld spoke Yiddish, lived in Czechoslovakia, lost his family to Nazi concentration camps, and had no business experience. Martin Greenfield lives in Brooklyn, speaks English, hand-tailors suits for U.S. presidents, and runs a bespoke clothing empire with high society clients and friends.

This is one and the same man, who is now a 91-year-old fashion legend, tailor to U.S. presidents and stars, and bon vivant about town. Mr. Greenfield – The Presidents’ Tailor is an hour-long documentary telling the story of how one man became the other, against all odds, and how he now grapples with his own legacy.
