How about The Contender. Oxxford, I believe, made the suits.

first two films on this list, suits were made by Douglas Hayward. As a matter of fact, Michael Caine based the character of Alfie on Hayward. Also a certain percentage of Roger Moore's Bond films were costumed by Hayward. You can indeed see Matt S for citations.

The man with my face, 1951.

The interrupted journey, 1949.

I've watched a ton of movies from the 40s to the 50s and most of them had great suits.

Here's one that has a strange moment: High Sierra (1941) with Humphrey Bogart.

Let's see if you can spot it. smile.gif

Love Tom Cruise but I hate his long hair in MI2 and MI4.  It doesn't suit him.  I prefer his MI1 and MI3 hair style.

Light in the Piazza - Rossano Brazi and George Hamilton (playing his Italian son) look exceptional. The contrast between the fit and cut of their suits is highlighted about halfway through the movie when Barry Sullivan playing an American executive shows up dressed in suits with heavily padded and extended shoulders.

If you're referring to Honor Blackman then I have to agree!

What? No-one mentioned Miami Vice (the series)?? :)


Ok, seriously.. there are hundreds of films from the 40s-60s with great suits. One of the things i love about this era is that pretty much everyone was wearing a suit, whether you were a shop assistant or truck driver. Not like the aesthetic nightmare we live in now...


From "Room at the Top", for example:




And then when they actually dressed up... wow. "My Fair Lady":
