    I really liked Brad Pitt's clothes and specifically the red leather jacket in Fight Club. For some reason, I dislike the red leather jacket as a separate piece, but thought the whole look of his jacket, print shirt and black pants came together well. He looked cool, tough, a little crazy, especially with the orange sunglasses.

    I am a 9-5 banker type and was thinking of doing a weekend look that's similar but want to use light brown in place of the red leather. I am thinking a reddish-brown leather, with a print shirt, collars over the leather jacket lapels.

    I won't have the ciggies or jauntiness of Pitt, but I think the whole look will be fun and different, and cool.

    Can I pull this off on weekends, or should I stick with my current, non-descript black leather jacket?

    Thanks in advance for reading this and your opinion.

    If you feel you have to ask, then the answer is no...don't even try it.

    Do you look like Brad Pitt?

    And do you have his $500k wardrobe at your disposal?

    Actually I represent banks in commercial litigation all over the east coast. Not smart enough to count money.

    can someone tell me what 9-5 banker type is ?

    I was a bit misleading. I am a commercial litigator in real life and represent banks in complex commercial litigation. 9-5 I look the part, with emphasis on slim suits and over the top shoes and ties. I hate box suits, boxy trousers and boring, stupid clothes.

    The beauty of FC was the simplicity of it all. Brad Pitt was a squatter. He looked like a hobo. No wardrobe like Joe Black. He was basically a cool, entrepreneur living in someone else's rundown shack.

    This is the jacket, sans Brad Pitt. I used this photo because it shows a regular guy in a wild jacket, and keeps Brad from the equation.

    You might need to be him to pull it off.

    I seriously wouldn't do it if I were you. I remember people like Lauren Hill wore like them 12 or 13 years ago and then a lot of middle aged women around my workplace starting wearing them and it never looked good. On a guy it would be bad, especially if you don't look like Brad Pitt. You will be noticed for the wrong reasons...
