    Lotta good suits in the new movie "J. Edgar." Don't know if it's top-ten material, but I certainly relished the costuming.

    I like looking at the clothes in period pieces. I thought "Legends of the Fall", for example, displayed some really great looks.

    Yes, also The Dark Knight also had some great suits in it. Another movie I would recommend is "Margin Call" it has some sharp suits in it as well; it's also a pretty interesting film. The film "Match Point" is another great film, which also has many great scenes with nice clothing as well as suits.

    +1 on Margin Call. Also, a good movie.

    Recently watched the recent OSS 117 movies with Jean Dujardin and he has some good looking suits. He actually makes the 3 button look very good, and I'm generally not a fan. Kind of a Mad Man minimal aesthetic going back to the basics with regard to colors, patterns, shirt/tie combos.

    It's not a movie, but White Collar always has nice suits.

    Those lapels are far too thin. Also, pinstripe vest with solid coat is not working here. I can't recall if I have ever seen it look good.
    IMO the far and away number 1 is The Sting. I can't think of a more stylish duo than Newman and Redford.

    I think Singing in the Rain deserves mention.

    I'll cheat with an old TV entry. I am currently enjoying Dynasty again and especially the clothes though I have no clue on who provided wardrobe. John Forsythe carried himself and his clothes very well.

    Just watched the trailer for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

    Gary Oldman looks very sharp there.

    Movies where Tom Cruise or George Clooney wore fine sleek suits.
