    Freida (1947):

    David Farrar looks fantastic in this film. So much about his outfits reminds me of how I dress in autumn & winter:










    And I like his version of workwear:

    All the outfits sported by Farrar are spot on, but I think he has a charismatic and intense demeanor which really brings everything to life.
    The school uniform is unusual, that double breasted front with a single row of buttons is very sharp!
    The other day I was thinking that school kids in uniform are inadvertently some of the best dressed people around, they are some of the few people out and about wearing classic looking separates.

    Here's Stewart Granger in the 1944 film 'Love Story':

    Casual outfit


    Cutaway collar shirt:


    Two button sports jacket, with a much lower button stance than most British jackets of the period (also with covered breast pocket, something I've noticed on a few of Granger's suits)



    With his broad shouldered suits and low button stance, Granger always appears to be a few years ahead of British fashion.

    Nice casual outfit. The light coloured thin belt and jumper sans collared shirt contrast the tailored jacket wonderfully.
    Funny how wide padded shoulders start to resemble unstructured shoulders when they slope like that.

    that's pretty much what Armani did in the late 80s - early 90s; took the bold look and turned it slouchy.

    It's not all-together a bad style, but I think the concept is overwrought, and isn't about flattering the wearer anymore. It's all about the look.

    This is a nice suit worn by comedian Barry Humphries:






    It's nice to see people in the wild (outside the fedora lounge) who appreciate a good double breast patch pocketed jacket.
