talented younger Brit actor, Johnny Flynn ("Emma").
An English tailor (actually, a "cutter:, he who actually makes a suit) relocated to Chicago has a shop frequented by the Mob who use his place as a drop. After some time, the Don suspects someone is squealing about his operation and that the shop plays some role in it. I won't divulge more of the plot for fear of ruining any of the many clever twists-and-turns--- this is great entertainment topped by Rylance's portrayal of the cutter. Highest recommendation.
Since 1995, and the quiet, memorable "Angels and Insects", any movie with Mark Rylance will have here a high probability of being looked into.
He was terrific as the nonchalant, captured Russian spy in "Bridge of Spies" (with Tom Hanks). When asked by the FBI why he wasn't panicking in absolute fear, the character softly replies, "Would it help?"
Another intriguing movie with a tailoring background is a spy thriller, "The Tailor of Panama" with Geoffrey Rush and Pierce Brosnan, based on the titular novel of John le Carre.
By chance only yesterday, I watched "The Man in the White Suit" (Alec Guiness) which I hadn't seen for probably 25+ years.
He's fantastic in it.
Hell, even Depp is great and that he was in it gave us... pause.
