Just watched the original Ocean's Eleven (the one with the Rat Pack). It is a fantastic film if you're in the mood to check out some well-tailored, classic menswear. I was wondering if anyone else had a film they enjoyed for similar reasons.

Loved the last 2 Bond movies. Nice choice of clothes for DC.

Pretty much anything with Cary Grant. NxNW is great; he had awesome shoes. Eva St. Marie was great in it too.
Fred Astaire always looked good too.

Stolen Kisses and La Chinoise. Great clothes, and exquisitely planned-out. (I think La Chinoise has been a big influence on Mad Men these last two seasons; at least in terms of color and framing and the way those things work with the clothes).

Good times.

As a sci-fi fan, Gattaca had a pretty big influence on me in terms of style while in college.

I personally find 'The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly' inspiring design-wise...
