    the original version of the “thomas crown affair” featuring steve mcqueen is an amazing film. forget the remake, it’s rubbish. not to mention that mcqueen’s bespoke wardrobe in the film is incredible.

    british sartorial expert mark powell calls it “the most stylish movie ever created.” alfred dunhill image director yann debelle de montby concurs: “it is an incredible work, as it declares to all men that being stylish is a joy.”

    james sherwood, author of the british sartorial bible the “london cut” declares that “it connects us with the passion we derived from military dress or court uniforms. it reminds us that in the centuries before, it was always the man, and not the woman, that was the style star.”

    mcqueen’s film resonates because of its unique combination of virility and elegance. definitely worth a watch or two!

    The Sting.

    James Dean in Rebel Without A Cause...and on this 1950s theme, Stand By Me (i.e. Keifer Sutherland and River Phoenix)

    Austin Powers. I'm only half joking here.

    I always liked a lot of the clothes in The Matrix Trilogy. The Merovingian stands out. As does Neo, still dig his priest like coat.

    I know LabelKing and another have already mentioned it, but I think Royal Tenenbaums (and really probably all Wes Anderson movies) deserves a bit more attention.

    Hackman's suit is just the definition of awesome. Grey flannel pin stripe with a pink shirt and the perfect repp tie. He just wears the hell out of that suit.

    Eli Cash has that unique leather jacket and that Stetson open road hat.

    The fact that Chaz and his two sons wore matching black Adidas track suits to their father's/grandfather's funeral is just great.

    Hell, even the house servant, Pagoda, is dressed better that I am in most scenes.

    Finally, there's Danny Glover. He's got that great bright blue coat and matches it spot on with that blue gingham shirt.

    Easy Money must surely be on the list for popularizing the "regular guy" look.
