Can't remember the wardrobe in Gattaca, but that was one hell of a good show.

A Better Life, what a movie. There is nothing Hollywoodish about this movie, it is as honest a depiction of life as it gets. No happy ending, just a bittersweet one like so many real endings. It's shows the trials life throws at man. You never actually triumph over a challenge; you never win a battle. You just cope and it always takes a bit out of you.

This may not constitute as a movie but great wardrobe nonetheless, Magic City a mini series on Miami in the late 50s starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Grey Anatomy and The Losers) Olga Kurylenko (James Bond). The protagonist started a hotel and of course some element of the mob in that show. The suits typical 50s classic, nicely cut, a lot of tux at dinner, although ties a are a bit too thin, I guess appropriate for the period.
What actually got me into this mini series was that i read on the Guardian or The Telegraph, the producers advertising for extras and were looking for actresses with no cosmetic enhancement. Can you imagine how difficult to find girls in Miami right now with no surgery. Hehehehe.

Have you guys watched American Psycho? It's a cult thriller film with lots of suits in it as the main character is a yuppie Wall Street banker who hangs out with other Wall Street Bankers

I suspect that many people in thekerbau would be able to identify with the attention to detail of the main character Patrick Bateman.

I watched it after a colleague commented to me that some of the stuff I said about shoes was akin to what Patrick Bateman would have said.

I loved American Psycho. Especially the scene where they show each other their business cards.

"That's a wonderful suit. Don't tell me, don't tell me, let me guess. Valentino couture. Looks so soft...."


Bonjour, je m'apelle Pierre Hermé (avec accent aigu é).

The coolest suit in The Dark Knight Rises is black, armoured, and seem to be covered in silicone rubber.

It's an underwhelming show. Bane is the villian this time. Contrast Bane to the Joker from The Dark Knight and you see what a genius performance Heath Ledger gave.

Bane is more muscle than brains. Joker on the other hand, is just plain evil.

Was watching Octopussy the other day in HD, and I noticed Roger Moore is guilty of the notorious collar gap as well. How does it work: is there not supposed to be ANY collar gap in ANY position?

Has anyone watched Jiro Dreams of Sushi? I think many on this forum would appreciate its lionisation of the ascetic artisan.

Have a look at the HBO series SUITS its about a bunch of lawyers?
Also American Gigolo with Richard Gere for the Armani look although that look is probably dated by now.

Just started on Downtown Abbey, i thought pretty cool period costumes. The tails on the footman was sublime.
