    Yes, I know what you are thinking, but the Demons / Angels / Devil are rather dapper in their own way, and you can tell that the director / producers were going for a sartorially inspired ethereal feel. [​IMG] [​IMG] Jon.

    Oh man, I hate the way the collar of the suit is floating over that guys shirt. Painful to look at.

    Well, his arm is up in the air. If you look at the top photo, it sits down on his top of his shirt collar.

    I hate to rehash old topics but was wondering if someone knew the name of or could help me figure out how the devil (Peter Stormare) folded his pocket square toward the end of the movie. The best image I could come up with was this one. It's tough to tell but it looks like a triple point at the top of the pocket but then this long tail. It looks so fluid and unforced when he did it (I'm assuming he used the "proper fold") but when I try to do it it looks contrived and my pocket bulges out; sometimes the tail starts to point straight out like it's excited...ahem.

    Any ideas?

    houserichichi, the so-called Carrot Fold might be the what you're after. I've never quite been able to make sense of the diagram, though.

    Gavin Rosdale looked good in that movie. I rather liked his suits.

    I wish they had left in the deleted scene of the Mexican drifter's encounter with the border patrol cops.

    What's the damage on one of those?

    It was $975, but I haven't seen them for sale anywhere so I'm not sure they are actually still making them.

    That's not bad at all.

    I thought that was the point, though. The character was full of hubris and various denizens of Hell were getting bolder in their manifestations.

    I really enjoyed the movie and rumors are there is a sequel in the works with the goal of being a hard "R" rating.

    Well, that's the only way I like the stripes, I prefer solids over subtle stripes
