    If films have any affect at all on how you dress, what films influence your dress and why?

    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. [​IMG]

    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.

    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. [​IMG]

    Robbie, have you ever seen Badlands? I think that would be my pick for you.


    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.

    I thought the same thing when I saw the movie. Definitely an item I'd want to get before the year is out.

    I love the scene where he's being chased through the school with dress shoes on and rounds the corner and takes them off to come back silently and drop the guy.

    Ya, that bit was great. I'm really looking forward to The Brothers Bloom. I kinda liked this guy's look too. [​IMG] And Nora Zehetner is cuuuuute. [​IMG]
