    the right hat...and suit and coat....it's Gable.

    It's the 1930s.

  2. The suit he wore in this movie is incredible - 3-piece, beautiful heavy fabric, awesome patched bellowed pockets and a belted back. It's '30s work-a-day suiting at its best.

  3. One of my favourite actors, here in my second favourite film, Big Night:

  4. I've wondered whether Tucci has the same affinity for this period that we do. Both Big Night and The Imposters are set 30s-postwar. Even some of the smaller roles he takes, like in Julie and Julia, Captain America and a cameo in Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle relate to the general era. Whatever the case, he always manages to class up the joint in whatever film he appears.

  8. Formula for man looking awesome in a suit: first, start with an awesome looking man (like Errol Flynn) then put him in an awesome looking suit (like any of the above, my personal favorite is the three-piece one) - to wit:

    awesome looking man + awesome looking suit = awesomeness

    or in pure, higher-level math terms

    ALM + ALS = A

    (A = Awesome)​

  12. In my now nearly 30 years of wearing suits, never, ever - not once - have I had a suit fit half as well. Whatever awards they give tailors, his must have won that year.

    I've found with my own garments, that great look/fit is accentuated by a nice narrow sleeve and high armhole. More so than one might think.

  14. Good advice. I see what you are saying - improves the overall line of both the suit and the man.

    Another thing I've learned over the years, if someone dresses well and is well-tailored, it absolutely positively is not happenstance. Great thought and effort went into it. Jean Patoup put great thought and effort into his attire.

    jumping to the 60s


    Caption says: "The Rat Pack during the filming of Ocean’s Eleven, 1960. Note the slim lapels, ties, white shirts, and Peter Lawford wearing loafers with white socks. This is the most stereotypical look of suiting in the 1960s."

  20. Man, look at that chest pocket. What's he got in there, a spare shirt?
