Michael Douglas captures the essence of the 1980’s ruthless business man; contrast collar, braces, slicked back hair:

Charlie Sheen is at first naive and innocent (note the color scheme):

But before long the transformation to the dark side is complete:

I’ve always loved films that capture and catalog a moment in time. “American Gigolo” did this better than just about any other film, capturing the excess and decadence of LA and the 80’s, and Julian and his Armani wardrobe perfectly captured the ethos:

Truly remarkable if you consider it was filmed in '79 and released in the first weeks of 1980. It didn't really 'capture' the 80s ethos as much as set the ethos on its way, especially Armani.

I've actually never seen the movie, but there are designers out there basing entire collections on how "Dickie Greenleaf" (Jude Law) dressed in "The Talented Mr. Ripley."

The Talented Mr Ripley is very faithful to the Patricia Highsmith book, which is great, but in other respects doesn’t measure up to the first film adaptation Plein Soleil. Matt Damon is an OK Ripley but Alain Delon was on different level. Such a great performance at such a young age. The cinematography is legendary, too.

What I have found, it was Attolini.

Something what is also fantastic about the movie is the light. They created in so many scenes a great mood and the light is in my opinion like an unnoticed supporting actor.

From To Kill a Mockingbird

"What’d He Wear?
Although Atticus Finch assures his daughter that their family is poor, the country lawyer retains a relatively wide selection of three-piece suits, all cut and styled similarly, that prove suitable for seasonal rotation: dark flannel for the cooler seasons, a light-colored worsted for the intermediate months, and—most famous of all—the heroic seersucker he wears for Tom Robinson’s summertime trial."
