Perhaps if we discussed what kind of watch Gekko was wearing, we can get into a REAL flame war. As far as the topic, I like the way Gekko was dressed, regardless of who made the shirts (and, Alex, I know it was you). Terrific looking shirts and suits that really captured the Wall Street fashion sense of the time. I've always liked the look of the contrast collars, particularly in a business setting. The Gekko character was created by Oliver Stone to be a villain. Stone had a point of view to express - that the Wall Street excess which pervaded this time period was wrong, and that businessmen like Gekko who cared only for themselves at the expense of others were a big part of the problem (I'm not advocating Stone's position, BTW - I've always felt that Oliver Stone sees things in a bit too much black and white - that, and the symbolism he uses in his movies is laughably obvious - I'll save this rant for another time). I find it interesting, however, that when Wall Street bounced back in the 90's on the backs of the tech firms, the Gekko character became for many a hero of sorts, and his business and lifestyle were seen as the ideal. This is reflected in a scene in the film "Boiler Room." This is clearly not what the filmmaker intended but, apparently, he made Gekko's lifestyle a bit too desirable.
