    I was very impressed with the suits...I can't remember the last time a Hollywood film had such style.


    Oh yeah...the movie itself was amazing too!

    Why is everyone on this board obsessed with spread collars?

    I also like the spread on my collars to be at least that of an Ainsley. I have a few shirts that are "tabbed(?)" collars and they just look too old fashioned for me.

    There are many people here that should be wearing straight collars as well. With collars, with the exception of the London-cutaway and the tab, among some others, collars are not really something based on personal taste. It is based on what flatters your head, neck and shoulders. Wide head- straight collar; long head-spread collar.

    What if you have a round head? (i.e. width approx same as height)

    I personally prefer spread collar. Looks spiffy. [​IMG]

    The movie was above average, the suits were about the norm to me.

    Wow you really do love Flusser as your are paraphrasing him right here. The reason people like spread collars is because they are far more elegant than the average frumpy and dull point collars seen everywhere. Sure a beautifully sculpted point collar may look alright but spread IMO looks better every time except in extremely wide headed cases and I mean extreme.

    It was nice to see a Hollywood blockbuster that was at least clearly trying with formal clothing.

    Weirdly, Leonardo Di Caprio's suiting seemed the worst fitting (and I agree his shirt collars were ill-judged). Some of the others were quite nice - and Cillian Murphy's sliver of white PS was a joy to behold.

    Looks great! I thought Inception was a stylish movie.

    Carefully selected attire is an essential part of the world of Inception. Costume designer Jeffery Kurland has utilised fabrics of varying weight and colour, plus a blending of classic and modernistic styles to establish setting and differentiate protagonists in slight, but distinguishable ways.

    Note Michael Caine's outfit of tweed jacket and Nehru collar shirt with popper buttons. As Miles, a university professor who may be vital, may be exposition, Caine's costume subtly informs proceedings with a merging of old and new (likewise echoing his and Cobb's relationship). It is not implicitly stated that Inception is set in the future, however Miles' clothing is not quite "˜now', although, paradoxically, it could be. In other words there is a suggestion that the story could take place in the near future, or even that Miles' appearance is actually part of Cobb's amalgamated dream state. Or more radically Miles could just be an older gentlemen who dresses a little kookily. Point being, there are no absolutes in Inception. And with this in mind don't neglect to register what Cobb's children are wearing either...

    Even with a multi-layered narrative juggling several conscious (or unconscious, or subconscious, as the case may be) states and timeframes, the characters are easy to follow. Their clothing immediately discriminates in such a way that an individual's primary personality trait is intoned without them having to say or do anything.

    For example, the immensely watchable Tom Hardy as relaxed chameleon Eames in lounge lizard open-neck shirt with splayed collars. Or the game enthusiasm and quite alarming beauty of Ellen Page as Ariadne, arty and creative in a patterned silk neck scarf. Contrast with Gordon-Levitt in his immaculate 3 pc suit (later immaculate leather jacket), Cillian Murphy as businessman mark Robert Fischer Jr. always in a cutaway collar, or Marion Cotillard's Mal, introduced in an angular silhouette as the wicked witch haunting Cobb's mind. Although, interestingly, there are no real villains in this film, not literal ones anyway.
