The other thing about Family Man is Cage's character's wife sees him lusting after the Zegna suit and she later buys him a Zegna knockoff. Earlier in the movie when he is still the rich guy his secretary says something about some Oxxford suits that are to be delivered.

My favorite part is when Gleason, after playing all night, washes and powders up, puts his jacket back on, and is ready to play some more.

Though it is not really a "clothes" movie, there is one great scene I remember in Highlander II.

Sean Connery walks into the "oldest gentleman's tailor in Scotland" and wants a "suit of clothes" made immediately. The store manager tells him it usually takes several weeks. Connery hands him his gigantic baroque pearl earring and says:

"I'm afraid sir damn well does understand. And sir would like his suit of clothes by three o'clock."

The manager snaps his fingers and the movie cuts to a montage of Connery picking out fabric, being fitted and dressed.

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.

This conversation sounds oddly familiar, was this spoofed by the simpsons or something afterwords? I think I can vaguely remember the same conversation between Mr Burns and his tailor, but of course Mr Burns is not a nice man, so he got single stitch and the pants come apart as he's dangling.

As long as we're resurrecting this thread from the dead, here's a fun scene from The Game, 1997.

Micheal Douglas, after losing a shoe while climbing a fire escape: "There goes a thousand dollars!"
Deborah Kara Unger, incredulous: "Your shoes cost a thousand dollars?"
Michael Douglas, nodding toward the dropped shoe: "That one did."

I'll start: from the movie The Game: Nicholas van Orten loses a shoe when climbing a fire-escape ladder: Nicholas: There goes a thousand dollars. Christine: Your shoes cost a thousand dollars? Nicholas: That one did. Can you tell I'm bored at work? Jon.

Always enjoy good repetition. Always, always enjoy good repetition, Always.

I loved this quote until I owned two thousand dollar shoes. Now I nod.
