Just wanted to point out small thing, in that photo he doesn't wear cufflinks (as opposed to during most of the film when his firm was in success), that is supposed to show how he had downgraded a little bit (due to being in trouble).

You're smack on target. He is wearing a double breasted doeskin cashmere from holland & sherry with smoke gray mother of pearl buttons.

The character Sam plays is a copy if a real life black news caster with a flamboyant dress style. Hence the color of this jacket is a deep purple and, if I remember correctly, he wore it with a pair of silver gray flannel Escorial trousers with fabric from Kemp & Hewitt. All the clothes I made for Sam had purple in them. I even found a purple herringbone tweed !! I had the cashmere jacket hanging in my store and sold 3 from it. It looked that rich and beautiful. The clients just gravitated towards it to touch the sleeve and then hooked themselves

An interesting little story.

Sam met the wig maker for the movie at my store and I watched her prepare his head. So interesting. She put a plain ole plastic bag on his head from his forehead to the nape of his neck. She then continually pulled off 1" to 2" pieces of scotch tape and flattened the bag to his head. Not just a few pieces of tape, though. Lots! By the time she had finished the bag had moulded itself to his head, but was firm enough for her to simply slide it off without the bag collapsing. This movie was made in Toronto and the wig maker and I flew their together for fittings. Her wig was just perfect. It was an interesting excercise and one I was glad to have witnessed. And Sam was a great guy, too. The costumes designer is April Ferry


I can't believe I missed this post. Thanks so much for taking the time to reply.
