That's true, but guys don't wear their jackets in the office, and they hardly wear ties either. People stared at me when I wore a tie, and asked me why I was so dressed up, so I don't wear ties anymore in the office. The only distinguishing factors are shirt fit, shirt colour (white or light blue), cufflinks and trouser fit (side tabs or belt, cuffs, break, etc.)

Someone might have the nicest and most well fitting bespoke suit, but you'll hardly notice it when they're not wearing their jacket and are sitting down all day long.

I'm afraid suits are becoming somewhat obsolete in banking, because clients aren't wearing them anymore either. I guess it all depends on whether business casual will evolve towards the casual or the formal side.


I see this also......and speaking from someone who has covered hedge funds(CT and NYC), broker dealers and banks in the NYC area.

Talking about suits in movies, was recently watching rerun of 'Intolerable Cruelty'. Anyone know who did Clooney's suits/shirts/wardrobe? Apparently, they styled it on Cary Grant's wardrobe from back in the day. I thought the shirt collar sticking out was pretty good.

Saw the movie last night. Great "period" costumes. (Is the 90s a period now?)

I didn't care for the movie itself. Way too long. It had some witty dialogue in some scenes, but it had a lot of unnecessary bachanalia scenes that didn't add to the film. I was falling asleep towards the end. Bloated piece of junk of a movie.
American Hustle is the better Bloated piece of junk of a movie. movie out right now with horrible casting choices.

so, uhm, mr. logsdail, if you're still there ... I really loved the look of Paul Child (stanley tucci) and would like to be able to adapt it for myself. would it be presumptuous of me to ask for a couple of tips? the textures and colors were really cool.

I'm on my way back from a week-long trip to Dallas where I set up a booth for my hunting clothes. Later in the week, once I have had time to get back on my feet at work, I will look at the order for that movie and give you whatever information I can

Regretfully, I cannot help you much.

I looked at my order book and see that the blue stripe suit and the gray flecked suit I made for Tucci came from fabric that Ann Roth, the costumer designer, brought in herself. She did some scouting around old stock in order to find fabric from the period. The only cloth numbers I found appertained to a linen jacket from Dugdale, number 8603, and a pair of gray taupe gaberdine trousers from Holland & Sherry, number 290004.

I wish I could have helped more.

I like a lot of the suits featured in the article. The film certainly has a nice costume department.

I could find anyone else who agreed with you regarding my acting ability!!!

The first movie I was in, I had lines. The second, I had lines, but they were cut. And the third movie I was not given lines at all. So I'm not sure where I go from here - except back to my cutting board! And I'm happier there.

Hey Len, great job on the movie. We're you in American Gangster as well?

Also, do you have the swatch codes for some of Leo's suits? I read that some were Scabal fabrics.

I made all the clothes for Denzel Washington in American Gangster, but I wasn't in it. I did have a small part in Wall Street 2. In that movie, I clothed Michael Douglas, Shia Lebeouf, Frank Langella, Josh Brolin.

No Scabal fabrics in Wolf. At least, not on Dicaprio. He wore Kemp & Hewitt, Holland & Sherry, Gladson, GRM and Lesser. I did clothes a few others for this movie and, if you have anything specific you would like me to look up, I happily will.
