The Master Matador Tailor / Great Big Story


If you find yourself in the direct path of a charging 590kg bull, you had better be well dressed. That’s Antonio Lopez Fuentes’ philosophy.

Fuentes’ is a family business that boasts 55 years of expertise in fashioning the finest handmade matador costumes.

It’s a tough job, but only the finest will do for the brave few in this death-defying profession — via Youtube
