Gordon Gekko from "Wall Street"

post #1 of 110
Thread Starter 
What is our opinion of Mr. Gekko's style? I think it's hideous. Especially the contrast collar and suspenders. Then again, it was the 80s.

I think I don't agree with you.

grayson? is that you? presuming its not, ill voice my opinion.... i personally dont like contrasting collars on anyone anytime - just a personal preference, but know that a lot of people hold Gekko's shirts up as the finest work Kabbaz & Sons has ever yielded. its basically impossible, from my limited knowledge anyhow, to to fault the fit...and certainly from what i hear, these are regarded as some of the most influential shirts to ever strike the menswear world.

Indeed, I thought that was well known. Jon.

I come firmly down on the side of both contrast collars and braces unless one lives in a place where people don't wear suits. Neither harmonizes well with shirtless odd jackets or track suits.

I don't like the contrasting collar either. I've even seen some at zootsuit that had bands of contrast at the edge of the collar (check out the stacy adams at the bottom): http://www.zootsuitstore.com/Shoppin....=&wf=25 Now, I AM a fan of the curved collar a la Pat Riley.

I heard that Alex didn't do the shirts, that Moses himself came down on a shining white cloud and outfitted Micheal Douglas for that movie. I'd like to see Alex Kabbaz prove otherwise. I heard this from Ghandi himself, and he said to me "Alex Kabbaz is a big weenie." Then we went out to "not eat dinner" and had some shots. Alex? Are you ever coming back?

it was either moses or grayson on that cloud

I still don't understand why people here idolize Gordon Gekko, a thief. To me people who love Gordon Gekko are slightly above the people who subscribe to the bling bling of Hip Hop.

Smileyface aside, given the history of the subject of this thread, I regretfully fail to see the humor in your post ... nor do I get the point of your question. Perhaps it is the difference in our ages, so why don't you spell it out for an old man?

Dear AK: I suspect the original poster is unaware of the history of this thread, or rather the 2,879,678 threads on the same subject preceding it. I also suspect that Tokyo Slim is making light of that onerous history and, he, like me, is your supporter and fan. That said, I must say that I, too, subscribe to the Moses theory.  As the noted 50s TV psychic and failed actor Criswell says at the start of the immortal alien-invasion flick "Plan 9 from Outer Space," "Can you prove it didn't happen?" The end. PS  We know you made the shirts.

I hope you realize just how ridiculous this statement of Criswell's (or Ed Wood's) really is. In other words, he's asking a person to do the impossible - prove a negative. Plus, he's shifting the burden of proof from the one making the outrageous claim to those who are skeptical and questioning the reality of it all. Ed Wood may have been tricky but he was obviously no student of debate or simple logical argument. Or, maybe he was and he was just trying to dupe the public again.

Um, yes. That's what makes it funny.
