» The Outfit — Crimes Made to Measure » tells the story of the English master tailor Leonard Burling ( Mark Rylance ) in Chicago in 1956. He once made tailor-made suits for London’s high society on the world-famous Savile Row. However, after a personal tragedy, Leonard could no longer endure his homeland. So he exchanged the glamorous and prestigious job in the British metropolis for a small side street tailoring shop in the rough US metropolis.
Of course, you can’t choose your clientele in a region like this. And so soon a whole series of more than shady characters frequent the business run by Leonard and his assistant Mable ( Zoey Deutch ). Things escalate one night when the seriously injured son ( Dylan O’Brien ) of a local crime boss ( Simon Russell Beale ) and a psychopathic killer ( Johnny Flynn ) seek refuge from the police and their other enemies at the store…
