Favorite clothing-related occurrence in a movie - Page 2

post #16 of 104
The british TV adaptation (ca. 1990) of PG Wodehouse's Wooster and Jeeves stories is absolutely hilarious and has some great clothes-related scenes, especially when Jeeves chides Wooster for his taste and then takes the liberty to rid his wardrobe of some questionable items. One funny moment was when Wooster wears plus-sixes for golf. Made me google 'plus-sixes', which turned out to be the same as plus-fours, only baggier...

I'll second Ocean's Eleven, if only for what Daniel says to Rusty: "Ted Nugent called. He wants his shirt back."

OK, not a movie but in keeping with the British TV reference, let's not forget every episode of Are You Being Served?, which took place in the Ladies' and Gent's Outfitting departments at Grace Brothers department store. Brilliant show with plenty of classic British fashion.

I found Mr.Humphries had the best fashions. But then Captain Peacock was always nattily decked out.

They show reruns on PBS, and yes not only was the program a sartorial show, but hilarious as well, especially the lighting-quick Mr. Grace. With his wonderful hearing. Jon.

Anyone see the 50's movie "The Man in the White Suit"? The premise was that this guy inventend a fabric that never stained and never wore out, and a major fabric weaving company, fearing for the survival of its business, decided to attempt to kill him and destroy his invention. The movie itself was quite a snoozer, but it takes the prize for sheer variety of suits, overcoats, and hats. On the topic of British TV shows, honorable mention goes to Roger Moore as Simon Templar in the 60's TV show The Saint. Can't think of any one particular incident, but he was always extremely well dressed. Much better than his Bond years.

I'll second Cary Grant in "To Catch a Thief" -- one of my favorite movies.

My favorite scene comes from the latest James Bond film, "Die Another Die". After Bond (Pierce Brosnan) is traded back from North Korea for another spy, I love the scene where he escapes from his own people, swims to shore in Hong Kong and walks into the hotel where - despite wearing raggedy clothes, sporting a 6 inch beard and desperately needing a haircut - he is immediately recognized and while checking in, says something along the lines of "have the tailor sent up to my suite." The next thing you know, you're getting a visual scan of his new wardrobe (practically clothing pornography) and it's back to the stylish Bond that we all envy   Bradford

That's naturlaut's and my favorite scene too. I also love the line from Dr. No.... "Did you break anything?" "Only my tailor's heart"

Of course, you know those Brioni suits; have to be fused, because there is no way to make a bespoke suit that quickly when making everything by hand. I mean, how did they make the suits that fast? Unless they were RTW, and they were tailored to fit 007. 007 in RTW? It can't be. Jon.

Does Pierce Brosnan only take roles in which he will be well-dressed? In all of his movies that come to mind (Bond films, Thomas Crown Affair, Tailor of Panama), he's always well-heeled. dan

And don't forget Remington Steele. But I think he's made some less well known movies where his attire is of no concequence. Something involving a volcano comes to mind.

Just an interesting sidenote to this. I read an article, around the time that The Thomas Crown Affair came out, that said that as part of his Bond contract, Brosnan is not allowed to wear a tuxedo in any other role than that of Bond. So he can wear all the nice suits he wants, but no tuxedos unless he has a license to kill Bradford

Perhaps the article I read was wrong. I have to admit, I was giving a lot more attention to Rene Russo in her slinky dress than I was to Brosnan in that scene Bradford
