Re: Clueless, some site did a "most influential films on style" primarily for ladies and Clueless was on there I think, but another movie was Amelie, which set the tone for the 2000s decade for middle class women. Bohemian, vintage, cutesy, naive, French, antique film effects, faded yet over saturated colors--would Anthropologie exist without Amelie?

interesting about amelie. thats practically 80% of tumblr and instagram there. back to clothing didnt indiana jones popularize A2 jacket?

Top Gun popularized the G-1/A-2 for sure.

Did I ever tell you guys the potentially true story of Tom Cruise, horse whisperer?

I know a guy whose father did all/a lot of the set design (is that what you call it?) for Valkyrie, and apparently Tom Cruise is actually a real-live alien. I haven't seen the movie, but he said that at one point a stallion went nuts and Tom walked over and started speaking softly to it, calming it down and stroking its head, until it let the trainers lead it away. Later, he apparently repaired a malfunctioning tank.

This is the story; according to my friend the "stuntman" was Tommy boy himself.

It is a simple matter of zapping the rogue equine thetans out of existence with a scientological mindpulse™

Léon (or The Professional, however you want to call it) had some pretty cool looks in it. Gary Oldman's suits would even work pretty well today, and Jean Reno's shades were too freaking cool.

Also, the movie Little Odessa—thanks Clandestine Entertainment Thread—had some really interesting costume design. I don't know why, but I simply found that whole movie's look really fascinating in spite of its ugliness. The leather jacket that Tim Roth wore was just fucking hideous... yet kinda cool.

I'm always on the lookout for basic, no logo, sweatshorts as I like them for going to class as opposed to regular gym poly gym shorts. Silent by Damir makes some good ones as well, but I'd only buy on deep discount as well.


Here's one of the Vince pairs I have:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

+1 on the Vince shorts. Construction is not the greatest, but they look pretty good and they're very comfortable.

The lightly quilted/padded Aspesi jacket I picked up on a whim early in the F/W sale season is turning out to be one of my best purchases. It's comfortable/durable and can be dressed up or down. Super convenient for days when I start off in the South Bay and drive up to the city (20 degree drop during a 45 minute drive).

After having the black calf/gunmetal zip 5-zip from this year for about 6 months, I really want a black lamb/silver zip one. Can anyone find one? I was contemplating buying a black lamb Toj MDR but it would only be as a replacement for the 5 zip I really want, and would most likely end up on B&S after a couple months.

You can place an order at the boutique for it IIRC... and it arrives whenever it arrives.

They all seem to be from the 80's: Flashdance for sweatshirts/gym wear craze, Risky Business for Ray Bans, Top Gun for jackets, Footloose maybe....

In television, Miami Vice convinced an entire nation to don flamboyent blazer/tee combos, and Rodney Harrington, Ryan O'Neal's character on Peyton Place, popularized the Harrington jacket, so much that it became known as...the Harrington jacket.

In books, The Sorrows of Young Werther ignited quite the fashion/suicide craze among young men.
