I watched the movie the first time for the sake of the movie, but I will readily admit the reason I downloaded it after seeing it in the cinema was because of those braces. Also love the steel-tips on Eames' shoes in the same scene as the one with the braces, and also the fact that the one englishman in the film (eames) is wearing red socks.(you see this in the mombassa scenes) The braces at turnbull are indeed from thurston... The big difference though is that classic thurston braces are not in silk, (think they have one or two models that are), while turnbull does a lot of silk, from what I understand manufactured from the same silk used in their ties. Apparently durability is a big issue with silk braces, so save them for those special occations (assuming the cost is an issue). As for cillian's braces in Inception. I would speculate that they are probably manufactured by Thurston, as quite frankly there aren't all that many others making good braces these days. However, which label they are made for is another matter, as thurston makes a lot for other labels, using their pattern choices and such. They seem to be made from silk, so it's not a bad bet that it may be turnbull, and in any case the best place to get look-a-likes is probably turnbull as they are the ones to my knowledge that do the most in silk. The first time I saw them I thought of them more as pale yellow, but I guess it is more of a cream, close to tan colour. The colour combo of the braces, shirt and tie really is excellent in that scene. EDIT: One thing that would go against the theory that they are from Turnbull though... From what I've seen Turnbull's braces allways have leather ends. It's tough to tell, but it looked to me as if the ones Cillian is wearing in Inception have braided ends, like the ones Thurston do for some of the braces in their evening-wear collection. EDIT EDIT: My mistake, they are in fact leather ends, so they look very much like turnbull's. Oh yeah also, great braces you've found. Really nice. Nice soft colour that should go with most ties and shirt combos, and a good pattern that is in no way dominating, but makes it a bit more interesting to the eye than a plain one might be. If only they had the silk one's in XL (115 cm) I might be sporting a similar pair.
