    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.

    Bugsy, Chinatown, and of course The Great Gatsby. And Bullitt for the more casual, "man of action," look...

    Yes, that is a good choice.

    Oh, this one too.

    You missed some. Re-read the thread [​IMG]

    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).

    That's Death on the Nile, and yes, Niven looked great in that film (as he always did). I just watched it on DVD a few weeks ago. Excellent film.
