The Greatest Suits In Film
« on: December 20, 2013, 12:03:36 PM »
Stumbled across this link regarding "threadmanship" in celluloid.

http://www.esquire.co.uk/style/fashion/5353/film-suits/

Any other examples spring to mind?

Hyak-hyak-hyak...

Nnnnn stop messing about nnnnn...

I vote for Caine's grey single breasted number when briefing the chaps in The Italian Job... Closely followed by the cream one later on... Everybody now... 'Look neither to the left, nor the right, just get on the plane!'

Agree with Adam, Sid's suit is top notch  8)
36/33 waist/leg, 46 chest, 10 shoe/boot

Watched Carry on at your Convenience this afternoon..great film, and Sid was well dressed throughout.

Quite like this 4 button number worn by Dick Van Dyke in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang:

Montgomery Clift was always rather dapper i seem to recall.
Have to agree about Sid James too.
Meanwhile over on the small screen Mr Paul O'Grady is always impeccably suited.
He only comes out when i drink my gin ...

Sid's suits get better in 'convenience' as he wins more money on the gee gees if I remember rightly  :D. He also wears some of the same suits in Carry On Loving.

Slightly o/t but he also has some nice casual gear in 'Abroad' and 'Camping' - a nice pair of suede loafers springs to mind.

You're absolutely right no.6. He discovers his wifes Budgie can predict the results of horse races so makes a mint...gets a nice new Morris Marina "Fastback" with the proceeds too. I'll have to watch Carry on Loving now just to see what he's wearing in that one, although it's not one of the best. Agree about "Camping" too. Some nice knits and suede shoes if memory serves.
