Clothing Styles in Alfie - Page 2

post #16 of 23
Brian, I'm aware of that; I just think that the original version deserved a merit for Caine's clothes too. I find it hard to separate the clothes from what this second Alfie's supposed to be like, compared to the first.

Michael Caine looked sharp in the original. Then again, he looked sharp in most of his work during the Sixties. I liked the original better (one of my favourite films) but thought this one was also quite good. Strangely, there seems to be a much more negative reaction to the film in Britain than in the US.

I liked the 60s British mod style featured in the movie.  Wearing those clothes every day would likely lead people to call you "Austin Powers," however. The movie itself was fairly entertaining, although in the category of Movies About Shiftless British Bachelors, About a Boy was much better.

I just saw the movie last night. It was ok, I'd give it 3 of 5*. Kind of chaotic (purposely), but it didn't work for me 100%. Though, given the number of "1/4 life crises" here, I thought it was very relevent to this forum. The clothes were cool. Someone else alluded to how Jude's coats were too small for him, and I agree. My date even noticed...good for her. But that look definitely works for him, as it would on skinnier male model-types...no way it works on me. Same goes for skinny ties. I thought the highlight of the movie was his hair. Does that make me uber-metro?

I definitely noticed a couple of Paul Smith shoe boxes when the camera showed his closet.
I noticed that too. But they were next to Via Spiga's. *bleh*

Caine is somewhat revered over here. Also we don't like people cocking about with things we consider part of our cultural heritage.

I hate to think what happened when Sylvester Stallone played Jack Carter in the 2000 remake of Get Carter.
