A cramped shop in Qom, Iran is the domain of master tailor and armchair philosopher Mr. Arabpour. At 80-odd years of age, Mr. Arabpour has been making ghabas, labadehs, and more recently, trousers, for decades. As the official tailor to some of the country’s most important religious leaders and politicians, his clients include former president Mohammad Khatami and the late Ayatollah Khomeini. Mr. Arabpour affably measures changes in his country’s religion through current trends in men’s fashion.
