Thinking of a light brown leather jacket a la Brad Pitt in Fight Club

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
I really liked Brad Pitt's clothes and specifically the red leather jacket in Fight Club. For some reason, I dislike the red leather jacket as a separate piece, but thought the whole look of his jacket, print shirt and black pants came together well. He looked cool, tough, a little crazy, especially with the orange sunglasses.

I am a 9-5 banker type and was thinking of doing a weekend look that's similar but want to use light brown in place of the red leather. I am thinking a reddish-brown leather, with a print shirt, collars over the leather jacket lapels.

I won't have the ciggies or jauntiness of Pitt, but I think the whole look will be fun and different, and cool.

Can I pull this off on weekends, or should I stick with my current, non-descript black leather jacket?

Thanks in advance for reading this and your opinion.

If you feel you have to ask, then the answer is no...don't even try it.

I was a bit misleading. I am a commercial litigator in real life and represent banks in complex commercial litigation. 9-5 I look the part, with emphasis on slim suits and over the top shoes and ties. I hate box suits, boxy trousers and boring, stupid clothes.

The beauty of FC was the simplicity of it all. Brad Pitt was a squatter. He looked like a hobo. No wardrobe like Joe Black. He was basically a cool, entrepreneur living in someone else's rundown shack.

This is the jacket, sans Brad Pitt. I used this photo because it shows a regular guy in a wild jacket, and keeps Brad from the equation.

You might need to be him to pull it off.

I seriously wouldn't do it if I were you. I remember people like Lauren Hill wore like them 12 or 13 years ago and then a lot of middle aged women around my workplace starting wearing them and it never looked good. On a guy it would be bad, especially if you don't look like Brad Pitt. You will be noticed for the wrong reasons...
