    And what about "wall street", "american psycho" or " the firm" ?

    I liked these movies in part because of garments.

    There are far too many from American Psycho:

    Patrick: "Paul Allen has mistaken me for this dickhead Marcus Halberstam. It seems logical because Marcus also works at P&P and in fact does the same exact thing I do and he also has a penchant for Valentino suits and Oliver Peoples glasses. Marcus and I even go to the same barber, although I have a slightly better haircut. "

    Courtney: "Listen Patrick, can we talk?"
    Patrick: "You look... marvelous. There's nothing to say."

    Patrick: "Kimball. Great, been meaning to talk to you. Jean, great suit. Matsuda?"

    Patrick: "Are you saying 'bleachie'? No, out of the question. First of all, these sheets are Cerutti - you can only get them in Santa Fe."

    Writing of which, does anyone know the difference between the un-rated and rated versions of the DVD?

    Jon.

    Harold, it's Bateman, Patrick Bateman. You're my lawyer so I think you should know: I've killed a lot of people. Some girls in the apartment uptown uh, some homeless people maybe 5 or 10 um an NYU girl I met in Central Park. I left her in a parking lot behind some donut shop. I killed Bethany, my old girlfriend, with a nail gun, and some man uh some old faggot with a dog last week. I killed another girl with a chainsaw, I had to, she almost got away and uh someone else there I can't remember maybe a model, but she's dead too. And Paul Allen. I killed Paul Allen with an axe in the face, his body is dissolving in a bathtub in Hell's Kitchen. I don't want to leave anything out here. I guess I've killed maybe 20 people, maybe 40. I have tapes of a lot of it, uh some of the girls have seen the tapes. I even, um... I ate some of their brains, and I tried to cook a little. Tonight I, uh, I just had to kill a LOT of people. And I'm not sure I'm gonna get away with it this time. I guess I'll uh, I mean, ah, I guess I'm a pretty uh, I mean I guess I'm a pretty sick guy. So, if you get back tomorrow, meet me at Harry's Bar, so you know, keep your eyes open.

    I found that the shopping scene in Rush Hour 2 where Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker attempt to make themselves look more "money" hilarious.

    The unrated verison just has a few extra seconds of some, ah, oral ministrations Mr. Bateman receives from the two hookers ("Do you like Phil Collins?") scene.

    Ah...Excellent. I mean...Excellent. I have the "R" version and watched it again last night on DVD, and I completely forgot how good the movie is. Especially regarding the sartorial prowess of the Wall Street yuppies. And, of course the variable quotes in the movie are perfect. Jon.

    Can friends of this forum provide more information on the wardrobe of Michael Douglas in the firm "Wall Street" many years ago. I like the suit jacket with cuffed sleeves he wore in the movie.

    Cheers

    I believe Alan Flusser supplied Douglas' wardrobe for Wall Street.

    ... thought I would resurrect an old thread instead of starting a new one.

    So, I'm watching the movie "Family Man" with Nicolas Cage on TV. I've seen it before, but I like to watch the scene where he's dead-broke and trying on a Zegna suit. And, then he proceeds to look himself over in a mirror and immediately recommends to the SA all the necessary tailoring.

    It reminded me of the first time I ever heard of E. Zegna - it was a Zegna ad campaign for Al Pacino in "Simone" (never saw the movie, but still remember the cross-marketing).

    Of course, then I recalled one of my favorite clothing-related scenes: Pacino in "Scent of a Woman" where he's being fitted for a three piece and he gives a little sartorial advice to a young Chris O'Donnell. Easily one of my favorite clothing/ cinema moments.

    In a different direction, I'll always remember Rob Lowe and Chris Farley at a gas station in "Tommy Boy": says Rob while cleaning mud and cow shite off his shoes, "These shoes are Italian. They're worth more than your life." Classic.

    "Italian Job" for me. Right after Michael Caine, as Charlie Croker, is released from prison, he visits his tailor and shirtmaker.

    His tailor "I believe you've put on a couple of pounds"

    Charlie Croker to his shirt maker, after selecting a bunch of shirts "Shorten these for us, luv. I look like a bloody gorilla."

    And the whole wardrobe and style of that film - perfect!

    Original thomas crown affair

    The Man in the White Suit ( I disagree about it being a snoozer - it was a terrific analogy of free market dynamics)

    Singing in the Rain - "Gotta Dance" scene where Gene Kelly goes through 4 or 5 costume changes.

    Man in the Flannel Suit

    The blonde venus - cary grant in every scene

    many others, but they're basically a reply of the above list.

    +1 to Gattaca, Travolta in Swordfish

    To add to the list:
    Nicolas cage walking into his full closet in Family Man, singing loudly to opera
    Brad pit always eating in shiny suits in the Ocean's series
    Tom Cruise's grey suit in Collateral
    (not my taste, but stylish) - Denzel Washington in Inside Man

    +1 for family man. I loved the "power suit" that he wanted to purchase and ended up wearing the used car salesman jacket. Classic. Anyone know the maker of the Manhattan "power suit" ?
