Discussion in 'Streetwear and Denim' started by robbie, Apr 23, 2009.
If films have any affect at all on how you dress, what films influence your dress and why?
a clockwork orange.
I only wear white jumpsuits with bowler hats nowadays.
I take most of my style cues from James Spader and Robert Downey Jr. in Less Than Zero. Also, I wouldn't mind looking like certain characters from certain Wes Anderson films. Robbie, have you ever seen Badlands? I think that would be my pick for you.
I could see lk being a fan of this one:
Good topic Robbie. Any Wes Anderson flick immediately comes to mind even though I can't identify personally wardrobe wise with any characters. War movies are easy and any classic New York 60's movie works. I wear jeans and v-necks...that is every movie ever made. Jason Thick as Thieves should have a good answer.
any1 seen james bond daniel craig dresses real gud lulz?!
PG often says my fits reminded him of the Graduate. I just watched it for the first time a couple months ago and I can see it.
Quadrophenia and This Is England. Good mod and skinhead stuff in em.

I haven't, aside from the pedophilia it looks to be a decent film. And as far as style goes, denim/denim and a kick ass what is that caddy? In particular I found the 'excuse the grammar' bit nice.
Obviously a thread on this subject that doesn't mention 'Bullitt' is useless.
Recently "...Benjamin Button" has had a fairly large influence as they dressed Pitt in what I'd consider almost exclusively 'Americana'. I just like that they did it in a good way and not all geeky garb like a lot of other modern films set in that period.

thats pretty spot on, scary.
Secret Service- I'd have to agree with the Wes Anderson bit. Although unbeknownst to me at the time Bottle Rocket epitomized that late 90's thrift store cool I tried (and still try) to copy all through middle and high school. The Royal Tenenbaums is teeming with style also.
Adrian Brody's suit here had me jonesing for a light gray suit which I ended up buying from TaT. p.f. flyers are a must.
