    Hi Guys, DOes anyone know what suits alfie had in the movie. I know the black one is from Gucci, but he had a stunning pinstriped one, and so far I have not seen such a great suit/cut anywhere. This is the one in particular...Alfies Suit Would appreciate any help. If not that same suit, then makes of suit with a very SIMILAR cut. Thanks

    This link suggests that at least some of the suits were made by Martin Margiela.

    I thought that suggested the suits were made by Boateng:

    "a black, handmade tailored suit and a daring pink shirt from the talented English designer Osward Boateng."

    I haven't seen the movie, so what I say should be taken with a grain of salt, but I feel like whoever made the suits, they were all re-cut by a tailor to specifically fit Jude Law the way they wanted them to. I wouldn't be surprised if some of them were dramatically reshaped.

    amirrorcrackd, I think he just wears the suits a size too small so they are super fitted. He says in the beginning of the movie that the black suit is made by Gucci, I could have sworn. The pinstripe suit looks like a Margiela to me, but it's worn kind of badly because it's so damn tight. It was driving me nuts, I can't imagine how much range of motion Jude Law actually has in that without ripping the seams.

    In the December 2004 issue of GQ, Law says that he deliberately wore the suits a size too small to create the impression that Alfie had bought the suits on sale because he didn't have the means to support his image.

    well if he bought the suits too small... he certainly started an new image. seen quite a few alfie wanabees on the streets if london now with very tight suits that seem as if they will rip apart if they even move thier arms ever so slightly...

    I guess since people were criticising the look. And now skinny is the standard in the fashion world. Unless of course if you're grossly overweight, then skinny is not "in." haha
