Here are just a few shots:
Sartorial Inspirations in the Adventures of Tintin
Just to resuscitate the post from above, I wholeheartedly agree. Part of this is probably due to the fact that most of the Tintin books were written during what some many consider a "golden age" of men's fashion (i.e. 1930 through the 1960's).
FWIW, I thought that Spielberg did a good job with the film as well.
If you read the entire collection, you can observe how men's style evolved from the 30's to the 70's, and how something never changes.
Cool. Didn't know that.
It's well known that Hergé was obsessed with getting all the minute details right when drawing things such as ocean liners and aeroplanes, and I think that extreme attention to detail is also very evident in his depiction of clothes.
Check out these photos of Herge and Chang in the 30's. Talking about being rakish.
I always found Asterix much more entertaining than Tintin. The jokes are better, especially in the English adaptation (mere "translation" would be too narrow a word for the magic worked by Hockridge & Bell).
To keep this vaguely on clothes, Goscinny & Uderzo could occasionally be found wearing some interesting hats... ;)
I noticed this too; it is pretty interesting to see this evolution.
