For better or worse, much of what the film/TV industry churns out influences what becomes acceptable, even cool, to wear. Some are the obvious references, such as Dickie Greenleaf (a name practically unknown outside of menswear nerd circles), Indiana Jones, and 007. But which ones have inspired you? More to the point of the challenge, can you duplicate it?

This isn't so much a copycat challenge, but...kinda. The idea is to post a pic of what you're referencing, and a pic of you wearing the same or similar outfit. I'm giving this one a few weeks, since it may take a while to find your muse...

Here's some pics to get you started:

or more recently Marilyn Manson in "Let me make you a martyr"

Sting in "Dune" should appeal to @Rais, his picture in the movie is his avatar and they bear some resemblance.

I will try to play;).
