Agree with the Ryan Philippe choice. I had a correspondence with the costume designer of that film, Denise Wingate, who told me where she got all of the clothes for Ryan and the other actors. Her style for the Sebastian character has been the biggest influence on my wardrobe. Some highlights: - She introduced me to the wonderful design of Belgian designer Dries van Noten. The light tan jacket Ryan wears in the country estate scene where he shoots skeet is by van Noten. Dries van Noten is a bit hard to find in the states - Barneys NY is the only store I know of that carries his pieces. http://www.firstview.com/MENfall2001...TEN/index.html
- The long black coat with the beautiful red lining that Ryan wears in those last scenes was custom-designer for the film and there are only three in existence. One was damaged from the scene with the car. The design of the coat is derivative of 18th century British footsoldier's jackets. If you ever watch Shakespeare plays, characters sometimes wear such jackets. I've been searching and searching and still can't find a jacket I like as much as that one. - That gorgeous suit he wears in the first scene is by Calvin Black Label (I picked one up myself after learning that) and that light brown wavy pattern tie is by Talbott. That rich blue shirt toward the end is Armani (who else?). - For anyone with girlfriends out there, that silver jacket that Katherine wears at one point is Bebe, and the pantsuit she wears in the first scene is by Gucci and although hard to see in the film, has stylish white pinstripes. It's a personal favorite.
