Classy. What movie?
The Night Porter
As much as everyone here hates armani, last winter he put out a couple of really nice overcoats. I was going to go bespoke but the wool & angora armani I bought fit so perfectly that I couldn't justify the extra cost. I happily paid full retail. It had nice high armholes, just the right amount of padding in the shoulders, and a very defined waist.
Yes, "The Night Porter".
I've noticed that designers tend to put out superior silhouettes for overcoats as contrasted with the rather stodgy cuts of the traditional makers. As much as I abhor DSquared, sometimes their overcoats are cut well as are Dolce & Gabbana's, and Ford's last collection for Gucci, which had some trim Chesterfields.
However, Dirk Bogarde was a clothes-wearing man so his clothing would have been bespoke.

That's so true in that the only Armani item I own is an overcoat. He does them well consistently.
I've got a great Armani leather overcoat. If you can get a decent price then Armani style is worth it.
