The silver suit of the young guy smells to Tom Ford to me. Looks great on the poster but not very good on action.

C&M maybe? Not that I think they made it but their style is a very narrow cut.

I'm confused--I thought Wall Street was Flusser's great claim to fame? This costume designer's certainly taking all the credit herself. Maybe Flusser just made the suits? No--he doesn't do that either. Hmm. In any case, considering he didn't get in on any Wall Street action this time around, I wonder if Flusser's regretting all those unseemly and self-serving comments he made about MD's sloping shoulders and total lack of personal style?

Okay, I'm sorry, but this is just wrong: Costume fail on that one (well, not the guy in the center).

That's what makes it look authentic.

I've always heard that the sequals are never as good as the originals and now I see why.

None of these pics is true to Wall Street.

Generally, Wall Streeters dress like fucking slobs. John Paulson is the only hedge fund manager I can think of who looks presentable. OK, maybe Jim Chanos. No other names come to mind.

Among bank execs, Lloyd Blankfein always looks well turned out, and Dimon of course looks good, maybe a couple others. But that's it.

In fact, in the PE/hedge fund world, we always say that you can tell who the amateurs are, because they're wearing ties. The guys who have $5b+ under management roll into your office looking like shit. And they can - I mean, what do they care? Two & twenty or three & fifty (which is what Stevie Cohen and few others can get) on $5b+ is a level of earning where you could give a shit what people think of your choice in clothing.

Anyway, the outfits in this film are fun to look at, but far, far off the mark, based on my experience.

If I had to do a primer for dressing for success on Wall Street, it would go as follows:

1 - Trader: golf shirt from an exclusive, upscale club - preferably Shinnecock: http://tinyurl.com/273qrve . Oversized, billowy dress pants - two pleats minimum. Gucci loafers. Croc belt if you're feeling snazzy. Rolex.

2 - Banking exec - upper eschelon: Oxxford suit, Gucci loafers.

3 - Banking - lower eschelon (veep): Savile Row bespoke and bespoke lace-ups, trying to impress bosses, not realizing that bosses think the look is "too slick." The smart veeps get the joke and go for Oxxford, which doesn't fit as well, but gets respect from the bosses.

4 - Hedge fund: ironic t-shirt, cargo shorts, Haviana flip flops, no shave in three weeks, but up 47 pct on the year, bosses are thrilled, and could give a fuck what the kid wears to work.

Do you have a web page to C&M?
