    Sean Penn in Milk, and Robert Downey Jr. in Iron Man both had nice suits.

    The dude in the grey suit from Constantine: English tailoring at its best. Even before I heard of SF, when I saw that suit I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that it was Saville Row work. Tilda Swinton's DB suit looks immaculate too.

    I don't have any links to it and I saw it in the theater but I thought Clive Owen looked pretty good in Duplicity (NOT The International) with Julia Roberts.

    He had a few combos - a navy blue one that he starts off with and a rain coat to go with it. And then a grey one he carries throughout the rest of the movie and a tan/khaki for his Rome scenes.

    Of course, his build seems to flatter anything they put on him. Wish I was as tall then finding clothing would be way easier.

    Henry Stewart made all of "Bobby's" clothing for The Untouchables. De Niro was a client at the time. He told me that he made all of the clothing exactly as it would have been made in the thirties. He was rather contemptuous of Cosner wearing Armani.

    +1. The DeNiro/Capone suits are great. Costner/Ness is ok, but he's too goofy looking to pull it off in most of them. Connery/Malone has a good casual look. Billy Drago/Frank Nitti just looks weird in the white suit, but some of his others are nice. Happens to be a helluva great movie, too.

    ^ some of Costner's wardrobe looked too costumey like the belted leather jacket he wore while they were near the Canadian border.

    If I remember correctly, the wardrobe was done by Giorgio Armani. I think it's in the credits at the beginning of the movie.
