I'm sure the current follow-up film to the 1987 classic "Wall Street" will make its mark on the menswear fashion industry. I'll remark only on the eyewear Gordon Gekko sports (probably in the first scene where Gekko gets his hands on the huge pile of $$$) and the wonderful wristwatch Shia LaBoeuf's character wears through most of the film. The frame is the newly trendy clear plastic type in a traditional design - perhaps Anglo-American but others make these (and I'd expect the costume people to select something more costly than A-A but maybe now). Wonderful what brand and design LaBoeuf's watch is. It's got an oversized, complicated case with a leather band? Can anyone actually identify it?

So you know for a fact this is the exact model he wore? Come to think of it, I do recall an IWC watch shown somewhere in the film - probably as one of those marvelous visual, special effect graphics they flashed so much on the screen during the run of the film pertaining to the Market, time in general, the NYC skyline, etc. Absolutely brilliant!

Come to think of it, could Shia LaBeouf have also worn a larger watch in the film? Perhaps when he was more dressed up? It looked to me rather oversized and I don't know if this IWC really is.

I did a little editing, if that's what the "huh?" was for. No lack of typos in this forum, though....

Can anyone identify the white (assumably athletic) shoes Shia LaBoeuf wore in the scene where he went to Gekko's apartment the first time? They certainly were eye-catching with that outfit.

Haven't seen the movie yet but I am going to assume athletic, and white leather high end sneakers.


Gucci

Every designer has a high end sneaker now a days.

Ferragamo
