What little I saw of THE SLAP seem to be getting to use clothing , and drinks, food, houses as a class or hierarchy marker in the program. At that stage I was more concerned with the narrative and character development . I'd need to see it through to get my eye in.
So I'm looking forward to "reading" the DVD of the SLAP for clothing signals, signifiers, signs and flags.[/quote]
Your right about the clothing, ect it clealy signified a bunch of dysfunctional middle class Melbourne yobos with no taste or class.
That said the productiion values were the best I have seen on Australian TV pity the only emotive response the characters evoked in me was one of loathing.post #12066 of 622134/15/12 at 5:19pmQuote:
I tried to read American Psycho a few weeks ago, to see what the hype was all about (20 years ago).

I grabbed one for $199 from Surry Hills warehouse a while ago. So far so good, fits me great and very comfortable.
They only made shorts in the matching fabric for some reason, I wished that they had matching pants...post #12069 of 622134/15/12 at 5:37pmpost #12070 of 622134/15/12 at 5:52pm
That dinner suit is absolutely beautiful. Saw it in James Sherwood's 'The Men's Style of Savile Row' and have been lusting after a velvet dinner suit ever since.
PJohnson also seem more than capable of producing the goods.Quote:Originally Posted by Pink Socks

Reading books where animals or small childern are deliberately hurt really makes my blood boil.
I did see the movie though and it wasn't bad.post #12072 of 622134/15/12 at 6:19pmQuote:
Oh, but Gerry, it's art, don't you get it?
Actually, I enjoyed reading American Psycho. Isn't there a part where Bateman does boil blood? Oh wait, no he eats brains. My bad..
It's just a cry from megalomaniacal Bret Easton Ellis for attention.post #12073 of 622134/15/12 at 7:06pm

Am finally reading The Bonfire of the Vanities which definately does not just assume clothes but goes into some heavy detail. But with an author like Tom Wolfe what would you expect (for those who do not know him and his white suits - google a few images). American Pyscho by Bret Easton Ellis is another novel with full on clothing details but that is very much a part of the character (actually Patrick Bateman would properly be a SFer).
Gay Talese; another author committed to fine clothing.
'Putting on a beautifully designed suit elevates my spirit, extols my sense of self, and helps define me as a man to whom details matter. Well-tailored clothing is a celebration of precision. When I'm wearing one of my custom suits, I'm in harmony with my highest ideals, my worship of great workmanship. In this period of globalization and outsourcing, of voicemail vacuousness and shopping on the Internet, there are few things more gratifying to me than standing in a clothing shop getting a second or third fitting from a tailor who is personally and pridefully engaged in what he's doing.'
