    Who do you think is the best dressed movie charachter?

    I think Robert Downey Jr, or as I like to call him "Bobby downs" has a pretty slick wardrobe in the Iron man series.

    And of course there's always Mr. Bond.

    So, who else have you fellas seen that had a style you admired?

    Good thread topic.

    I would go with Mr. Chow in 2046. Great style all around in that film.

    Edward James Olmos in Bladerunner.

    Not really, but it might be good inspiration and I doubt anyone else was going to say it. It's a great movie full of pretty girls with men's names. Incidentally, the cinematography had a lot to do with it. Sean Young looks amazing in that movie, but just kinda meh elsewhere.

    It is a tab collar. It probably isn't appropriate for everyday modern businesswear but he pulled it off with style. Don't forget that it is a period piece.

    Thats a good one. seriously Sci fi has some good outfits, 2001 is pretty good at the beginning Hardy Amies suits.

    Thomas Crown (original)

    C.K. Dexter Haven, Nick Charles, or, if you're feeling more modern, I'm a fan of Ian Struan Dunross.
