    I am surprised no one has mentioned Gattaca.

    the big mistake with gattaca was putting all the detectives in 1930 style trenchcoats and snap brim hats when the setting was the future. a gimmick that did not work. http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2939260416/tt0119177

    I am not sure. Reading SF I observe a lot of bias in favour of returning to old times style.

    I enjoyed Gattace and cannot recall having been disturbed by the trenchcoats or hats.

    "The Firm," a '90s Tom Cruise movie. Paul Stuart suits, I think, for Cruise and at least some of the rest of the cast. Gene Hackman, though, I think wears Canali (according to closing credits). Great sartorial splendor for those in "the firm," IMO.

    I thought both actors wore Canali? Gene Hackman for sure did.

    You saying the clothes are not great or are you saying you just don't like the film noir feel to the film?

    Nobody has seen this movie because it is a silly, silly movie, but "Down with Love" with Ewan McGregor. Which makes me want to bring up "Stay" as well. I heard Thom Browne did wardrobe for it, but I am not sure of the validity of that.

    I second both Thomas Crowns, pretty much anything with Grant and Astaire. But I gotta put Gosford Park up, granted some of the suits didn't have the fit down but I loves me some tweed![​IMG] And I'm also a Davd Niven whore that man looks good in a suit! (Murder on the Nile). Definetly love the original Wall Street look the new one had some great clothing but the execution wasn't so hot. P.S. Anyone seen Dirty Rotten Scoundrels? Love the blazer and white suit.

    I like to watch BODY OF LIES. The character Hani, as Jordanian security chief, played by the english actor Mark Strong, wears one H. Huntsman suit and jacket after another in the film.

    Dirty rotten scoundrels is one if my favorites. Great movie. And the navy blazer, grey pants, and rep tie really looks great.
