    This movie came on last night, its been years since I've seen it. I'm not sure who did the costume design, but that movie is like a catalog of outstanding menswear. Incredible suits, and they have a surprisingly modern cut to them. Google "the sting redford newman" and then hit the "Images" tab to see what I mean... [​IMG]

    You have no idea how much I love those wide, bold stripes on Redford's suit.

    Love The Sting. Though I did hate the bold-striped burgundy suit Newman wore in the initial scene.

    Are you thinking of the brown w/red striped suit that Redford wears after he makes the first score? I agree, it was awful.

    Newman's first scene is in a tank top. After that he takes Redford shopping where he dresses him in classy stuff. Newman's suits are always good in that movie.

    That's the one I'm thinking of. I wouldn't wear it, but I think it's fitting with his character: hustler makes a bunch of money, blows it all on a pimpish suit and gambling.

    I couldn't stop thinking that while I was watching the movie.

    Yup, that's probably the one. Its been awhile seen I last saw the movie, but I remember it as a garish burgundy with white chalk stripes. I'm probably wrong.

    agree..but it represents what he could afford at the time as a 2nd rate grifter...

    Are there other movies as good at representing the Apparel Arts era of clothing? The Great Gatsby, I'd imagine, though I haven't seen it.

    'The Hustler' is great. Jackie Gleason's, Minnesota Fats, is sharp as hell!

    Gatsby is costumey.

    The best clothing movie I have ever seen was a '30s movie about the fashion industry, but I forgot the title.

    Love this movie, and not just for the clothes. It goes through bouts of getting repeated on one of the obscure channels here, and if I channel-hop past it, I almost always end up watching a fair bit of it through.

    I like Leone but this one was too long and meandering.
