Reviving the only one of these threads I could find: I watched Hitchcock's "Rope" and the suits in it are awesome, especially Jimmy Stewart's. Great movie too.

The Warriors. The Conformist.

It occurred to me that there are also some movies that are anti-style. They make arguments against style, not explicitly, but by making heroes of characters so blatantly indifferent to style that it's apparent that they view style as a straitjacket or as an announcement that the system owns you. The characters get by on inate cool of one form or another.

These are good movies, or they wouldn't be worth talking about. Some examples, off the top of my head: The Wages of Fear, Rancho Deluxe (THE anti-style film), Singles, California Split and Choose Me (which is in fact very stylishly made although the characters are stylish not at all).

The first two pics are from The Conformist. The third is Elliott Gould very near the end of California Split.

Last night as I was flipping through the channels I came across Easter Parade. Fred Astaire's clothes in that film are immaculate. The hats were incredible, oh to live back then. Tophats, bowlers and homburgs in black and greys. For his suits I especially liked one he wore in one of the first scenes, a light grey single breasted suit with a double breasted waistcoat as well as a cream coloured single breasted suit with a red db waistcoat and white and brown spectators from one of his dancing numbers. The fit of his jackets is exactly how I would like mine to fit. They hugged his body without being tight and still provided plenty of movement (small armholes). All in all it was actually rather inspiring in terms of visualizing what I want my wardrobe to look like.

He also wore several double breasted suits which were of a 6x3 foremation, similar to a modern peacoat. There's a pic of one here. Quite intriguing.

The roll on that grey number is a hell of a thing. Love it.

No. 1 Gangster was extremely stylish clothes wise, but other wise sucked.

Completely disagree. Well, not completely. Styles were cool, movie was great.

Joe Fiennes wears a couple of admirable things in Killing me Softly. Like Heather Graham.

That movie was kind of.... bluh. I didn't like the ending at all, and I thought it was too gory. The language wasn't all that great either. Great, I sound like an old man now. However, I really liked the way it was shot. My favorite director, Paul McGuigan, directed it.

I thought Gangster No1 had it all.....awesome gear, good music, and the movie was overall very watchable.

One movie I'd like to see on dvd that was completely under the radar when it came out is "Stay" with Ewan McGreggor and Naomi Watts. Apparently Thom Browne did the wardrobe for McG.

Check out the leading man in (Tony Leong?) in amovie called "The Lover"
Set in 1930,s Indochina. Immaculate in a white suit and brown shoes! Steamy scenes,but when he's wearin' clothes they are great.

Also the "Great Gatsby" clothes in this movie were done by the young Ralph Lauren, at least that is the info I have about it.
