I first discovered Clothes on Film 8 months ago when looking for details pertaining to James Bond’s wardrobe. Since then I’ve been a huge fan of Chris Laverty’s blog. His attention to detail, wide range of clothing reviews, and smart wit make learning about men’s style through the silver screen fun and entertaining.
3 Reasons you should give Clothes on Film a look over:
- Chris’ detailed analysis and breakdown of a character style is unmatched anywhere on the web. If you’ve ever wonder just what type of tousers Sean Connery wore as James Bond in Dr. No, look no further then Clothes on Film.
- The interviews with the costume artists gives you an inside view on the meaning they were trying to convey with color and cut. Learn from this and apply it in your own personal style.
- Clothes on Film gives you a new perspective to the same old movie – you’ll find yourself paying attention to the details of Carey Grant’s wardrobe in the movie To Catch a Thief, looking for how he takes an ordinary jacket and trousers and wears them in an extraordinary way.
I really enjoyed Clothes on Film‘s take when it comes to casual wear. Below you can see where he starts to go over Daniel Craig as James Bond wearing casual clothing on the streets of a rougher neighborhood – but Chris also covers unlikely style inspiration found in movies such as “The Big Lebowski” and the 1970s Cult Classic “The Warriors”
Finally, I need to say that this is not a review encouraging you to copy a particular actors style. Rather the intent here is to encourage you to pay attention to the details by learning from people (the costume designers) whose profession is conveying message through non-visuals.
