    Hey Guys,

    Just finished watching the last four episodes of Entourage and wanted to know if anyone can give me any info on Jeremy Piven's suits and shirts. I've always liked his look; very fitted, softer shoulder, with bigger spread collars and thick tie knots. Both the suits and shirts seem to be MTM or custom jobs, either that or Piven has the perfect body for OTR (which I don't). Any info would be appreciated.

    My wife showed me a People magazine blurb. It was a less exalted brand as I recall (and he wears Kenneth Cole shoes on the show according to the same blurb). But I don't know how reliable People is.

    Yeah, IME, People is rarely correct on all matters sartorial. Although I am not certain about the shoes; we rarely see him in shots that show his shoes close enough. I have often wondered too.

    Now that I think about it, the character Ari's suit may have been Gucci according to the same article. But the shoes were definitely reported as Kenneth Cole.

    If true, deflating, no?

    Remember guys. This is TV. Budgets are not the same as in major motion pictures.

    Unless the stylist is being given clothing for screen credits, they will spend as little as possible. Vacco is way out of the picture price wise.

    The stylists/shoppers buy tons of stuff and then return what does not get used!

    STylist on budgets love stores like club Monoco, because it looks sort of like prada, but does not cost as much.

    To add to this, many of the same piece will be bought for continuity sake, because scenes are not generally filmed sequentially. So buying expensive pieces rachets up costs and can use the budget up really quickly.

    Shows like Sex and the City, where the styles are nearly central, are exceptions to the rule, and even then, lots of the wardrobing is done with mid-range stuff (available at better boutiques, but with outerwear in the several hundred dollar range, rather than the several thousand dollar range.)

    In L.A., stores do tons of business off of studios. Pretty much all the big department stores have a "Studio services" department. I remember passing the office on a regular basis at the Beverly Center Macy's Men's store on my way to the washroom.

    Proving yet again that if you're in decent shape -- as Piven is -- and you know how to wear clothes, you can make anything look good.

    Well, anything except Kenneth Cole shoes anyway.

    I was told again and again when I first became interested in this forum that fit matters the most. I am beginning to see it.

    Yep, a good, regular exercise regime will do more for you than a 10K suit (not that the latter can't help.)

    I'm not surprised the shoes are Kenneth Cole.

    If you really want to define the American Jackass mentality, the character of Ari Gold would probably be a good place to start. The character, while intelligent - Harvard, Michigan Law, is certainly not a thoughtful, well-dressed individual who would choose a pair of understated but expensive Alden's or Lobb's. It's more the amalgation of expensive name-brands and flashy style. A pair of Kenneth Cole's would fit right in to this character's style as would Gucci or Ferragamo.

    Despite the fact that this forum as a whole considers Kenneth Cole's to be crap, they are widely available at better retailers like Macy's, are not cheap and are still quite popular.

    I think his suits are a little too tight sometimes, and the tie knots are WAY too big for his size/collar/face shape. IMO.

    The tie knots may not be his choice. I don't think he's that tall, and if he wants the tie to hit at a certain place above the waist, the only variable is how much material to use in the knot. Actually, some of his suits looked like ones I've seen at Banana Republic, but I'm guessing it's a coincidence.

    I'm glad I haven't been smoking the same stuff most of you guys have. I've always thought that Ari looked like shit in nearly every outfit he wore (with the exception of one pinstripe suit that looked to be of the Paul Smith variety). His tie and shirt combinations were especially dreadful and his suits never fit and always slid over his neck with reckless abandon, nearly everything about them except the sleeve length were just wrong.

    You'll eventually get a contact high and join the others [​IMG]

    I can't comment as I am 1 of the 5 people who don't watch the show.

    Me too. Where are the other three?

    So why, you might fairly ask, am I taking up oxygen in this thread?

    I'm hoping for that contact high...

    Alright, so you won't have any and you keep smoking the other stuff you've been smoking then... [​IMG]

    Honestly, I disagree with the fit comment but tend to agree on the shirt/tie choices. I think this is part of the character though... In any case, I believe Ari is better dressed than 90% of characters on TV shows and maybe in movies as well. It probably has to do with the fitted look of his suits and other clothes - pretty unusual on American TV

    For ed, grimslade and the other 3 guys who don't watch the show, you be the judge. Here are a bunch of pics I found on the HBO website (I didn't select at all, just took all of them):

    Some of Ari's choices are unconventional - and his pants look uncomfortably tight in some of those shots - but he's an agent in Hollywood, we shouldn't expect him to dress like a Wall Street banker.

    I personally like a lot of Ari's suits. Now, I also agree that some of his tie and shirt combinations are a bit too loud for my tastes; but they are unique to his character and do have a lot of flare. Only certain people can pull off those combinations, and the character of Ari Gold has enough pinnache to compliment it.

    Although from time to time, it's obvious that the suits are different and have a different fit. For example, looking at the pictures gdl203 generously posted, the first one is fitted well whilst the third from the bottom isn't so flattering.
