    What kind of style is the suit Shia is wearing? I have incredibly limited ability to determine if this is Italian (Roma / Napoli) or English (SR) style? What do you think?

    I'd go with british over italian.

    the cuff on the pants looks stupid, especially with the loafers.

    Honestly, I've got no clue, but I sure hope that "Shia" is the younger guy because the older guy is dressed like crap.

    Looks like the suiting is some shiny mohair or sharkskin affair. I hate shiny suits, so a big thumb down from me.

    They did that on purpose to create an image of a fallen tycoon, later on in the movie he gets better clothes. And for the OP if I'm not mistaken the tailor who did Shia's suit was Len Logsdail who is a saville row trained tailor based in NYC.

    If we focus on the shoulders of the suit. What style is this and what is it called? One can clearly see that it is not straight shoulders that I know many tailors on SR does. Is it Ellen Mirojnick or Leonard Logsdail that have made the suits?

    Here you can see the same shoulder style
