        Beautiful, feels like watching Lucky people center international 2.0.

        Really like the dialogue part of Zam Barrett. On here, allowing customers to visit the studio, this. It's been very nice following the brand so far (since relaunch) going from bags and belts to expanding to main line, category M, and (yet again) to womenswear. I wish you and the team all the best!

          Props to everyone who was involved in the making of the video . I enjoyed listening to Zam talked about the ethos behind his work and providing a quick history on his origins. His garment are exactly what i appreciate in clothes; beautifully made with long longevity. Keep up the amazing work Zam/Zfactorie, congrats on finally having a physical space for customers to experience your garments in person!

            Me too, I will join in the long line to congratulate you. What a nice inspiring video to see real clothes-makers still slugging it out on the other side of the pond. And congrats to Arkady as well for the film direction.. some beautiful images and shots in there throughout. Great work guys and thanks for sharing it. Best wishes, Geoffrey

                Very nice little doc, and really cool to have a look into where and how these clothes are made. Well done, Arkady. And I hope this brings more eyes to the ZB label.

                    Zam & Arkady - I guess I'm echoing everyone else above, but that was an amazing video. I had no idea you designed for the military, but it makes too much sense. Just makes me appreciate all the clothing I've bought, and will buy from you, even more. Did I hear some dub chords at the very end?

                      Thank you immensely to everyone for the support and kind words. I'm intrigued to hear we've added some dimension to the objects you already have a relationship with, and glad that we've intrigued some newcomers all the same.

                      It's worth noting that Jonathan extensively sampled recordings of daily operations in Zam's atelier when he wrote the music, as our aim was to create something fundamentally of the space and the man.

                      I'm still sitting on hours of choice exegesis from Zam, including on the origins of the universe, don't tempt me to put more of this out

                        This video is a great one! Thank you everyone involved.

                        Regarding socks: I have two pairs and have experienced nothing of the sort described above. Pretty much happy with construction and quality so I guess it was, if happened, an unfortunate issues.

                            The movie just sold a pair of pants. Kinda.

                            Very nice work Arkady and nice to see Zam in action again. Remember those early movie clips which were on the web site earlier now.

                              Have grown to love your work more and more the last few years. Thank you for the video.

                                Really interesting and well done edit, as a relative newcomer to SZ I think it's really cool that there are some knowledgeable creatives among the forum, and I love picking up bread crumbs of information left by people like Zam on the forum. The video gave some really interesting insight, and I love that you designed for the military!
