The part in the movie "The Hard Way" where Michael J. Fox's is hanging off the side of a building, his shoe falls off and he goes "Oh, Shit that was a Ferragamo!"

2 that come to mind for me are both from the late great Robert Altman.

I loved the way wardrobes were portrayed in Gosford Park, truly one of the greatest movies that has ever been made... a MUST see.

Second, while nobody agrees, I loved Pret-a-Porter (ready to wear) - very funny movie. That scene where Marcelo Mastroianni (needing clothes) breaks into Danny Aiello's room and tailors his jacket, then later on Aiello spots it and says to the person he was with 'hey, I have that same jacket'.

I always thought the character of Louis in Spielberg's 'Munich' looked rather good. Obviously, with the film set after 72' there is an awful lot of Yves Saint Laurent inspired roped shoulders and wide lapels. In a modern setting it would look rather outrageous, but in this movie looks very good.

How about the "Coffee is for Closers" speech in Glengerry Glenross?

"See this watch? See this watch?"

"Yeah..."

"This watch cost more than your car."

Tony Leung in Wong Kar Wai's "In the Mood for Love" is the only time I have ever liked cufflinks and french cuffs.

Frank Slaughtery: Oh - the ladies ever tell you that you look like a fucking optical illusion?

+1.

That is a beautiful movie. And the clothes are just perfect. Tony Leung's suits are great. I like the sheen.

At the moment, for me it has to be Gangs of New York:



I love the idea of the odd jacket, odd trouser, odd waistcoat, and to finish it off with a top hat. For some reason I like wearing sportscoats more than suits most of the time. I make it a challenge to squeeze as much colour as I can into one ensemble. I guess part of that influence is from this Victorian (?) image with a twist.

The Hudsucker Proxy.

Paul Newman is being fitted for a suit:

Luigi: Mr. Moose-burger, I give-a you pants a nice-a dooble stitch, eh? Make 'em strong, and they look-a real sharp.
Sidney J. Mussburger: No! Single stitch is fine.
Luigi: But the double stitch will last forever.
Sidney J. Mussburger: Why on earth would I need a double stitch? To pad your account? Single stitch is fine.
[Cut to Later as Mussburger is being grasped by his pants to prevent him from falling 50 stories to his death]'
Luigi: Ah, what the heck. Mr. Moose-burger is such a nice-a man, I give him double stitch anyway. That's some strong stitch, you bet.

And, then he proceeds to look himself over in a mirror and immediately recommends to the SA all the necessary tailoring. It reminded me of the first time I ever heard of E. Zegna - it was a Zegna ad campaign for Al Pacino in "Simone" (never saw the movie, but still remember the cross-marketing).
My favorite "suit" scene in Family Man was when Nicolas' Cage said " . . . and Oxxford called," to which Cage replied, "Ahh yes, my suits are ready." The next scene showed his very indulgent closet.
