    Okay, I'm sorry, but this is just wrong:Costume fail on that one (well, not the guy in the center).

    That's what makes it look authentic.

    I've always heard that the sequals are never as good as the originals and now I see why.

    None of these pics is true to Wall Street.

    Generally, Wall Streeters dress like fucking slobs. John Paulson is the only hedge fund manager I can think of who looks presentable. OK, maybe Jim Chanos. No other names come to mind.

    Among bank execs, Lloyd Blankfein always looks well turned out, and Dimon of course looks good, maybe a couple others. But that's it.

    In fact, in the PE/hedge fund world, we always say that you can tell who the amateurs are, because they're wearing ties. The guys who have $5b+ under management roll into your office looking like shit. And they can - I mean, what do they care? Two & twenty or three & fifty (which is what Stevie Cohen and few others can get) on $5b+ is a level of earning where you could give a shit what people think of your choice in clothing.

    Anyway, the outfits in this film are fun to look at, but far, far off the mark, based on my experience.

    MD looks really fucking old.

    The man has stage 4 throat cancer, which he will likely not recover from. Cut him some slack.

    If I had to do a primer for dressing for success on Wall Street, it would go as follows:

    1 - Trader: golf shirt from an exclusive, upscale club - preferably Shinnecock: http://tinyurl.com/273qrve . Oversized, billowy dress pants - two pleats minimum. Gucci loafers. Croc belt if you're feeling snazzy. Rolex.

    2 - Banking exec - upper eschelon: Oxxford suit, Gucci loafers.

    3 - Banking - lower eschelon (veep): Savile Row bespoke and bespoke lace-ups, trying to impress bosses, not realizing that bosses think the look is "too slick." The smart veeps get the joke and go for Oxxford, which doesn't fit as well, but gets respect from the bosses.

    4 - Hedge fund: ironic t-shirt, cargo shorts, Haviana flip flops, no shave in three weeks, but up 47 pct on the year, bosses are thrilled, and could give a fuck what the kid wears to work.

    C&M maybe? Not that I think they made it but their style is a very narrow cut.

    Do you have a web page to C&M?

    This is true in my experience, but they don't look like shit because they are earning tens of millions of dollars a year and can afford not to worry about what people think: it's simply because most of them never did care about their looks and appearance. They didn't care when they earned $30k a year and they don't care now. That's why you get so many badly dressed buy-siders [​IMG] Sell-siders generally care more and dress better but the average level is still pretty low. A lot of the top guys dress in expensive stuff but just aren't snappy dressers; I remember thinking this when looking at John Mack up close a few years back. No doubt there are many, like Blankfein, who realise they should look less nerdy and hire somebody to dress them when they start appearing in public regularly. TD

    so he does a movie where he smokes cigars [​IMG]

    that blue checkerboard jacket on Shia is atrocious. Josh Brolin, who for some reason or other I think of as a prick even though I know nothing of him, is the best dressed in these pics.
