    Why the big fuss over this?

    the same reason guys like to start threads on how bad someone's dressed (tv personalities etc) so they can apply all their newfound SF knowledge into tearing apart someone's outfit as decreed by all the SF rules

    Despite the minor nitpicks, these guys are still dressed better than 99.9% of the US male population.

    Charcoal and pale yellow don't work. Unless you're a canary in a coal mine.

    I feel the same way about long hair and pony tails. I think it looks fine.

    Jesus Christ guys. Have some of you not even seen Ocean's 11 or 12? Keep in mind that these are COSTUMES. They are actually designed by a designer for each character to convey specific character qualities. Brad Pitt did actually work with the designer on his particular outfits, for example they wanted them to be a little bit flashy, a little bit over the top, to reflect his character. Clooneys were a little more conservative for his leadership role, and so forth.

    Why the big fuss over this?


    Exactly. If you know about the chracters, you see it all makes sense. The way the "veterans" Pitt and Clooney have similar sitting postures while the "rookie" Damon sits different from them and appears less confident. Then if you look at Pitt's jacket/pants, you see Damon's outfit can be considered the opposite of his, with darker trousers and a lighter jacket as opposed to lighter trousers and a darker jacket.

    To reconcile our differences i'd say yes you are right the costumes fit their characters very well. BTW they play a bunch of narcissistic douchebags.

    I took a break from banging two supermodels in my million dollar mansion to look at this picture, and I must say agree with the rest of the winners on here that those guys are really lame.

    I don't get when *you guys* critique the wardrobe of a MOVIE, and somehow put upon it your own oh-so-terribly-refined taste of how some movie character should be dressed

    They look fine in that pic, it definitely suits their characters and lifestyle. Get over it, or show us how it's done with your own wonderful photos of sartorial excellence, esp Mr Dkzzz (perhaps if they had AK-47s they wouldnt look so douchey) [​IMG]


    I agree with Get Smart.

    Some of you are a bunch of haters. These are actors, for an ad campaign for their characters. And I think they look good. Sure they don't look like they walked out of T&A, Brooks, or whatever it is you think embodies "classic style," but that's the point.


    +1 to all of these.

    Btw, is it possible to reopen the biggest douche poll?

    I have not seen the movie. The photo provided, is troubling in that the men don't look spontaneous. They look arranged and configured, so as to play off each other. Clooney is the central focus, in the dark ensemble. The other two men are relegated to seesaw, so that the picture can flow. Reminds me of a room that's been finished by a decorator, just starting out. If the entire movie is a procession of such shots: four aspirin headache.

    I wouldn't even notice what the clothes look like.

    I feel vindicated. My impeccable sense of style did it again. [​IMG]


    P.S. Anyone wants to start a douchebag clothing line? It seems it would have a large built-in customer base.

    Only people with short hair should have pony tails, then?

    Or, guys with long hair shouldn't have pony tails.

    I saw this movie. Best sequel thus far this year. Highly entertaining if you enjoyed the previous 2. Style wise I wasn't impressed but a great movie nonetheless. There is a great scene where they morph their mugg shots that's [​IMG]

    Anyone know what suit Pitt was wearing in the first few minutes of the film? Looked like a white or linen suit, pale yellow shirt, brown belt and shoes.

    Anyone have any pictures?
