    I like durdens clothing style as well. What are your thoughts on tyler durden?


    This looks extremely bad ass.

    "All the ways you wish you could be, that's me. I look like you wanna look, I fuck like you wanna fuck, I am smart, capable, and most importantly, I am free in all the ways that you are not."

    I love that movie. Sometimes I wish I were someone's imaginary mental creation so I could dress the same way [​IMG]

    yeah, it'd look goofy and/or affected on most, but Brad Pitt carries it off because, well, he's the current office holder of Western Civilisation's male ideal.

    Another person who could carry it off would be someone like John Waters or Steve Buscemi because of their unconventional natures.

    exactly, you have to be stunningly, unquestionably studly or ultra-quirky and unique to get away with it. Anyone in between (as I suspect most of us are) should proceed with caution. That said, I definatly have a red leather jacket like this one which I bought soon after seeing the movie. I've worn it three Halloweens in a row, which is the sum total of times I have worn it.

    Also similar would be Nicholas Cage's snakeskin jacket from Wild At Heart.

    Only in a trendy club. Then' it might be cool.

    Its over the top and affected big time.

    You're not going to the local starbucks or after work drinks looking like that.

    --Things alot of the time look really cool in movies but don't apply in the real world

    The jacket would be keen however.

    Tyler Durden wasn't real? WTF? What are you going to tell me next? Bateman imagined his murders? There is no Santa Claus? Take your myth-busting deconstructionism somewhere else, kill-joy.

    It is perfect, however, as a uniform for starting underground fight clubs across the northeastern United States that morph into an anarchist army [​IMG]

    I am Jack's sense of embrassment. Did I say he wasn't real? I meant imaginary because he gets reconstructive surgery every few years and only sleeps a few hours a night...yeah, that's it!

    I find it weird and disturbing we're talking about this movie when I have terrible insomnia right now.

    The leather jacket looks very cool. Would I personally ever wear it? Probably not.

    My wife has a jacket similar to that (it's vintage and falling apart), a little longer, the way women often wear their jacket, that is really cool. I am looking for a similar jacket for myself. Haven't find the perfect one yet, but there is a pretty cool vintage shop near my place that often has stuff that would work. I just haven't found the right fit, design and color yet. I'd wear the tee shirt as well, but probably not the pants (I wear jeans nearly exclusively) and definitely not the loafers.

    I had the same initial thought. Did you read the thing recently where he has had to stop giving seminars because he is no longer able to approach? Apparently some deep-seated type of social-anxiety disorder that he thought he had cured has returned with a vengeance.

    If you have a rock hard six pack, go for it. Just as an aside, I had a shirt exactly like that in 7th grade... just so you know that some people out there may not read "Tyler Durden" , but "middle school geek" on your shirt choice at any rate.

    Actually, I've read arguments supporting both that he did and did not commit the murders.
