    Oh really? Seeing that you live in Boston (in contrast to, say, a James Bond movie set), you must be constantly amused then...

    I would say ticked off more than amused.
    There is only so much amusement in fleece covered, flip-flop flopping masses one can see.

    I think you guys have gone soft and simply given in to praising Brad Pitt. a terrible actor.


    I think Pitt is underrated, if anything.

    good Pitt roles I've seen:

    -Kalifornia
    -12 Monkeys
    -Johnny Suede
    -Thelma & Louise
    -Fight Club
    -Babel
    -Se7en
    -Snatch
    -True Romance


    good Pitt roles I heard he was good in:
    -7 years in Tibet
    -River runs thru it
    -Legends of the Fall

    then there was Troy, Meet Joe Black etc [​IMG]

    It seems to me that Brad Pitt is one of the few big Hollywood actors that takes on more niche roles.

    I don't get when *you guys* critique the wardrobe of a MOVIE, and somehow put upon it your own oh-so-terribly-refined taste of how some movie character should be dressed

    They look fine in that pic, it definitely suits their characters and lifestyle. Get over it, or show us how it's done with your own wonderful photos of sartorial excellence, esp Mr Dkzzz (perhaps if they had AK-47s they wouldnt look so douchey) [​IMG]


    Agreed...I think they look fine in that picture


    And yes Brad Pitt is very under rated. Hes a good actor and has made a lot of fun films. Most of his films are fun to watch and he plays his role pretty well in most of them. He also produces good films such as the Departed

    I agree with Get Smart.

    Some of you are a bunch of haters. These are actors, for an ad campaign for their characters. And I think they look good. Sure they don't look like they walked out of T&A, Brooks, or whatever it is you think embodies "classic style," but that's the point.

    I think they give of a cool vibe and thats what their character is supposed to be. Not the guy with classic style....

    They look fine. I wish I looked half as good as Brad Pitt in that pic. I'd totally wear his gettup. Knowing his age, I'd say he needs to lose the hilites.

    It seems the Get Smart momentum is building. I can't say anything bad about how they look except that maybe Clooney looks a little uninspiring.

    I'm not sure I'm with the collar comments either. None of the collars seem too high and Pitt's might look a little large but seems like your everyday average 3" point or semi-spread. Maybe I'm missing something [​IMG]

    I think they're all great actors; maybe not Pacino great but...

    I'm having a hard time believing that someone just compared Jude Law to Brad Pitt as ACTORS.

    ^^ haahhahahaha I missed that

    to the guy who posted that:
    Are you fucking kidding me? Brad Pitt is a much better actor then Jude Law. Jude Law may dress better on an everyday basis but thats about it. I think Jude Law has his own style and doesnt rely on a stylist. He likes clothes and its obvious when you see the stuff he wears. No stylist is going to be puttin him in Number Nine jeans with CCP shoes. Brad Pitt doesnt really care about clothing too much. He has a stylist. Its not really his thing but when he does dress up...he does it really well. I would say probably, maybe his stylist is behind it? IDK but Jude Law doesnt have one. Thats the only thing Jude has on Brad but when they both dress up, I think Brad tends to look better cuz hes a big bigger and wears his clothing a little better....

    Haha are you kidding me? Brad Pitt is the same fucking character every time [​IMG] Same as Clooney. Please do not ever recommend that anyone ever watch Seven Years in Tibet

    I do apologize for the Jude Law connection to acting though. [​IMG] I definitely take that back.

    Yea cuz theyve been in Oceans 3 times???? I think your comparing them using only their roles in those three movies...or two since the third one hasnt come out yet....


    Brad Pitt was a totally different character in recent movies such as Babel, Snatch, and Fight club. If you watch his older movies such as Kalifornia and Legend of the Falls you can further see the difference in character.....

    I agree with Soph that Pitt's outfit looks the best ... smashing, actually. Clooney and Damon look okay, nothing great. I'd be more than happy to see people in real life dress like this.

    I think Brad Pitt also wears his clothing much better then the other two. And he pulls of wearing sunglasses extremely well....

    Jude Law cried in Closer and even though he was just acting, for some reason I can't disassociate him with a bawling baby.

    I think they look pretty good. I've seen better looks in MC of course, but they look *cool* which is something you see a lot less of on the Internet clothing chat boards.

    People who look like they walked out of Brooks look poorly dressed.

    People who look like they walked out of Turnbull look garishly dressed, at least to my American eyes.

    For me, the collar points don't seem especially long - it's the height of the collar bad or at least how high the collar is sitting (relative to his neck) in that particular shot.

    I am not discussing acting chops of those 3, only their looks.
    I have to say that if you think Brad Pitt looks cool or stylish on this pic then you are 100% Amjack . Un-tuck your striped shirt immediately and pull out your oversized shades.

    They (Cloony & Pitt) look exactly like a bunch of American tourists in Europe desperately trying to look stylish in order to blend in, while sticking like sore thumbs.

    What I'm realizing from mosts of your posts is that you're quite narrow minded and self centered. If it's not dkzzzz's aesthetic, then it's whack. I guarantee these guys look better than you any day of the week, regardless of what they are wearing.
