post #76 of 129
I wouldn't put it up there as a movie, but Craig wears a fantastic tweed sport coat in The Golden Compass.

IMO, Bowie looked really great in The Man Who Fell to Earth
Great scene where one of his suits arrives and it's the wrong colour, and he completely freaks out.

All that interests me is that both Brosnan and Craig looked outstanding in their Brioni suits. When Bond looks outstanding, that's mission accomplished. Whether Fleming would approve or not means squat to me.

The VERDICT with Paul Newman? That is one of my favorite movies, but I do not remembers the suits being anything special. I believe they were 3pc, but nothing that stood out. I will watch it again.

yup, the one with paul newman. there wasn't anything flashy or special about the suits themselves but i just really liked the way they wore them and looked so comfortable in them.

just got around to watching King's Speech and loved the suits that both Firth and Rush wore. Firth typically wore a lot of formal-wear, including a nice white smoking jacket with white bow-tie. was a big fan lol although my GF rolled her eyes when i asked her if she also liked the outfit lol. and rush wore a lot wore a lot of textured suits - tweed, etc. great stuff from the mid-30s.

I caught The Wonderful Lies of Nina Petrowna at The Museum of Modern Art on Friday. It is a beautiful silent film from 1929, Germany. It took place in Russia and the military uniforms were amazingly perfect, but even more so was the white tie tuxedos at the beginning of the film. So perfect it was insane. Not a collar gap in sight. Strangely enough it is hard to find pictures, or anything much on the film at all.

Interesting as this flick got a lot of stick on another thread for having ill fitting costumes and rampant collar gap was mentioned. I just saw the tail end of the SAG awards last night and Geoffrey Rush made a speech wearing a DJ with horrific collar gap so maybe its him to blame. He was also wearing a ridiculous black kangol style cap indoors so I hope he gets his fully deserved comeuppance from Joan Rivers on Fashion Police!!

Richard Gere wore some great three-piece suits in "Pretty Woman". I believe most were double-breasted so not as much a dated gorge as on display with the suits worn by his co-star, Jason Alexander. Early sixties suiting is on display in "Thirteen Days". Not quite the super-thin lapels of the mid-sixties. There are some nice mid-century suits in "The Marrying Man". Bonus points for Alec Baldwin's line to antagonize the bad guy: "Is that a new suit, Gus? Because it looks like the lining of a better suit." Also, the Godfather movies have been mentioned, but part III also has some nice late-seventies suits. Very conservatively styled, so the sartorial horror of that decade is largely avoided.

The other weekend I watched 'The Sting' and was really impressed with the suit fits. While the shoulders were quite built up by SF standards, the silhouettes were timeless (ignoring the lapel widths and the ventless jackets). If I wasn't convinced by the permanent style argument before, I am now.
