This 86-Year-Old Tailor Goes to Work Every Day with a New Outfit, and a Photographer has been Capturing it for the Past Three Years

Do you think you will look as stylish as 86-yearl-old Ali? It’s hard to imagine given just how much style the Berlin resident seems to have – those are some seriously slick suits!

Having mode from Turkey to Germany over 40 years ago, Ali was once a practising doctor but has since taken up a new career as a professional tailor.

Photographer Zoe Spawton happened to come across the elderly man one day in Berlin in 2012 after he had walked past her place of work each day wearing a different suit. She decided to start photographing Ali and his different suit each day, continuing to do so for 3 years!

You can check out all the best photos of Ali in his suits at the aptly named blog ‘What Ali Wore’.
