Halloween is right around the corner. Here are some stylish film-inspired ways to dress up this year.
The Blues Brothers
All you need to look like Jake and Elwood from this comedy classic is a black suit with a black hat, thin black tie and dark glasses. Bonus points if you can sing or play the harmonica.
The head of the Addams family’s horrific household is a captain of industry who dresses the part. Get the best double-breasted pinstripe suit you can find. Accessorize with a Cuban cigar and a snifter of the finest cognac.
The Man With No Name
Want to inspire fear and awe like Clint Eastwood’s character in all those Spaghetti Westerns? Go for the Mexican cowboy look, complete with poncho and a hat with a tooled leather band. You may have to forgo shaving for a few days, but it’ll be worth it.
Whether breaking hearts or bringing down bad guys, Bond is always impeccably attired. A high-end tuxedo, a carefully selected, expertly polished pistol, and a martini—shaken, not stirred—and you’re good to go.
The homicidal businessman at the center of American Psycho is as stylish as he is sociopathic, so try a top-tier two-piece suit made to measure. Then add a clear poncho and a thick-handled cleaver to put the “axe” in “accessory.”
Want to rule the world and eliminate Austin Powers, or at least look like you can? Start with a tailored Nehru jacket, then get yourself to the best barber possible and go all the way if you really want to do it right.’
