This feature documentary explores modern masculinity in America by profiling companies and artisans committed to the domestic manufacturing of men's fashion and grooming products.
"Caruso's documentary, Making the American Man, explores the evolution of men's style in the last few years, and the artisans and the manufacturers who are at the forefront of the Made in the U.S. moment in the men's fashion market. Gone are the bedazzled Ed Hardy days of yore, giving way to a fashion movement that promotes style and substance." -Mia Gallupo
"What they hold in common is passion for their craft, a sense of integrity and dedication to quality. Caruso also didn’t want to weigh down scenes with statistics and graphics. To that extent, the film appears to be a beautifully shot hybrid of a men’s style blog and an infomercial set to kicky jazz tunes by Loston Harris." -Khanh Tran
