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.
Oh so true of entertainment too! In general, you have your agents who wear flashy stuff, often fits like shit, usually paired with ugly Prada shoes. A few dress really well, but they're the exception. Then you have the managers who try and dress half way presentable, maybe ill-fitting dress pants and a shirt with the collar stays left at home. Producers are another level all together, in old t-shirts and flip flops to meetings. Studio execs run the gammut, depending on their rank/department.
