Just trying to explain the phenomenon. I have no stake in his financial success (though I'd gladly accept as little as a half percent), but he's an excellent actor who's willing to attach his name and reputation to ridiculous projects in exchange for very large paychecks.
He lends things, gravitas, basically. Morgan Freeman is an excellent, recognizable and marketable actor who sells lots of tickets and isn't too picky about the projects he takes, as long as the check clears. If you have a strange movie concept and want to make sure it has enough gravitas that people won't dismiss it out of hand, you hire a guy like Morgan Freeman who can give a serious, credible performance even in the strangest of movies. You pay him a lot of money so...
Depends on the pair. Flannel is a specific weave (light or midweight twill with a raised nap), wool is a fiber that can be woven into all sorts of other types of fabric as well. This pair, for example, appear to be flannel. This pair appears to be a twill without a raised nap, so not flannel.Not at all. Just watch for dated details on the jacket- overwide and heavily padded shoulders, weird loose fits, low lapel notches, weirdly shaped lapel notches. Basically, make sure...
Cuba Libres tonight, of course.
Movie stars often wore their own wardrobes back then, probably bespoke.
I have a few nautica shorts I like, 8" inseam. On a short guy like me, that hits right above the knee. Lands end, LL Bean- just look at all the usual suspects. Or just cut and hem an old pair of chinos to your preference. Brioni just seems stupidly excessive for shorts. Keep 'em simple and clean in design, and shorts are just fine in casual circumstances. From what I know of the weather in Sidney, I'd have to think they would be an utter necessity in summer.
If it doesn't fit you right without major surgery, the cut does not fit you nicely. Find another cut or brand before you do something you regret. Look at any Ralph Lauren stuff, by any chance? Springs to mind as a fit that might suit you better.
Presumably, half portions of both bonded Lairds and high proof whiskey.In case you're not familiar with Lairds, it's applejack. A spirit made from apples, produced similarly to whiskey. Bonded means it means the old bottled in bond requirements- 100 proof, aged for at least 4 years, ect. Laird's bonded applejack is 100% apple- the 80 proof is a blend, 65% neutral spirits. Skip that junk and go straight to the bonded.
^Youch. Painfully bad.
You're going to be bumming around Asia? Have a getup made for you. It'll probably run you $100 or so. Do check with your friend on attire- if they're expecting tuxedos, wear a tuxedo. If they're expecting morning dress, wear morning dress. Do NOT try to get creative with either one. If tux, single button, peak or shawl lapel. Black, black bowtie (self tie, learn how- it's not hard), black low cut vest or black cummerbund. Colored pocket square is allowed. If morning dress,...
