Inception, who made the suits for the movie?

I'm mixed on the movie as a whole, but Joseph Gordon-Levitt's deadpan performance is very appealing. If anyone wants to make a Buster Keaton biopic, here's your man.

Marion Cotillard is also terrific. What presence that woman has!

Sartorially, I like all the French cuffs on display, and J G-L's waistcoats and vested suits.

Being a slim guy I personally loved Arthurs style in the movie especially the brown leather jacket. I'm looking for one now matter of fact.

That definitely sounds ****


I thought the wardrobe was far, far better than almost all mainstream films, in particular as mentioned Arthur's, and Cillian Murphy as Fischer.

Today's "Hurriyet" newspaper in Turkey ran an article on the company that produced the suits. They were all designed by Jeff Kurland and made by a Turkish company called "Cetintas Tekstil" in their factory in Eskisehir. In the article they say they met Kurland at the Globaltex fair in LA in 2009.

Cetintas as far as I'm aware does not market their own name as a brand (at least in Turkey). The article mentions that they have brands named Tenessee, Marco Donati and Gentash which are available in Russia, Germany, France and the Middle East. I wouldn't count on them to be very high-end though. The manufacturer was chosen because they quoted a low price.

Here's a link to the article (in Turkish):

In the Esquire article above, Kurland says he designed the suits and they were made by Dennis Kim Tailors, a small Korean-American owned operation in Los Angeles. No mention of a Turkish Co. or subsidiary.

I thought the grey suit Ellen Page wore was the most interesting of the bunch.

Couldn't get over the association of JGL and his character from 3rd Rock.

me too. kind of upset that these were bespoke according to the article posted above. i wonder what fabric the brown slubby sportcoat was made of, and if any RTW equivalent is available?

i thought the suits reminded me of walking down Dalston and seeing the 'made in Turkey' signs in the windows. Cheap.

Although, really liked Saito's white dinner shirt in one of the opening scenes.

Anyone in LA used Dennis Kim? Maybe I will have to check him out.

Yeah, good film but the fashions on display weren't the best.

He tends to dress well in most of his films (500 Days of Summer, for instance) and off-camera. I've seen him in Details/ GQ/ Esquire spreads too. I wouldn't be surprised if he collaborates with the costume designers in advance and has a say in what he wears on film.
