I like the flapped breast pocket on the dude behind him.

It must have been something for the average Londoner to see these guys wearing these kind of suits..
I was watching a documentary on the Swinging Sixties on English TV and it was mind blowing how little the myth was actually true..

The Sixties were not swinging at all even in London apart from a few streets of London..

But yes, in his day, a great style icon.

Just following in the Duke of Windsor's fascist footsteps.

Actually, a little research shows him to be more a center-right kind of guy and Sarkozy supporter although this quote is attributed to him on imdb.com:
"Jean-Marie Le Pen is a friend. He is dangerous for the political set because he's the only one who's sincere. He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own."

Clearly not, but that's not only because he's a facho. That's because he is actually a douche and a megalomaniac, and has made rather poor acting choices in the last 20 years. He's the butt of many jokes in the French comedy shows.

This one meets both criteria:

Attachment 23939

It's my favorite, bar none, to look at; and I have it not only in a gray flannel like Fred's but also in a half dozen other iterations in solids, stripes, and checks and in weights from 9/10 oz. to 14/15 oz. Both of my dinner suits, one tropical worsted and one 12 oz. barathea, are also in this model. But if I could own only one suit, the gray flannel would be it. The sole difference between Fred's suit and mine is his choice of the keystone button placement as opposed to my preferred 6X2 rolled to the bottom button.

Here's another view of what I believe is the same suit coat, though it could just be the same cut; and I wear several of my suit coats as odd jackets this way:

You obviously haven't see masterpieces like Frank Riva and all the movies with "flic" in the title he made in the end of 70s-80s. That stuff is golden.

+1. I really like this. It feels modern and timeless.

Alain Delon is a great actor...Le Samourai, Les granges brulees,La Veuve Couderc, Melodie en sous-sol,Le clan des siciliens,le Guepard,Borsalino are all great movies but he has a massive ego...
He also had a great and exciting life ,full of interesting relationships..
La critique est aisee mais l'art est difficile..

Liked the suit of Red Grant in the james bond movie, From Russia with love. Does any one know the maker of the suit?

This is a good thread. How about "The best sportcoat ever. See it here." ? Does it need to be its own thread?
