“I wore a pretty great tux in To Catch A Thief. Will you be doing a post on that anytime soon?”

I’m always looking for new BAMF Style content ideas, so if you’re ever watching a film or TV show and think, “Hey, that BAMF has great style…” you should know where to go.

I try to be as accommodating as I can be to requests. If I have the film or show requested, I’ll get right on it. If I don’t, I head straight for Amazon (or the local DVD Exchange) and start scoping out deals.

Nothing is out of bounds, as long as there’s enough to be covered! If the film is black & white, no worries, I just won’t talk about color.

In the meantime, post below if there is anything you’d like to see on the page and I’ll get to it as quickly as possible! (Or, if you don’t want to be so public about it, shoot an email to thesartorialbamf@gmail.com).

    Any chance of a Jack Slater from Last Action Hero article? I’m itching for a thorough description of his jacket for science.

    Jack Nicholson in As Good As It Gets. He wears a lot of very interesting shirts, and I was surprised to see that you have not already covered that!

    Saw IN A LONELY PLACE on the recommendation of the NYT last night and while I wasn’t as impressed as i’d hoped to be (a MUCH better “typical” noir being either THE KILLERS or DOA), I checked your piece on it, which I found informative as usual. However, I think the movie could be profitably revisited. The big news, for me, wasn’t Bogart’s suit but his posh casual wear, the creamy jacket over the black buttoned up polo shirt. That’s a wardrobe style not usual to films of the time, perhaps because was too Beverley Hills to share. Anyhow, that’s how he spends most of the film and it’s a clear projection of his character, the coddled, self-hating and -doubting “genius” who’s prone to violent rages. Worth another look? (Was that Bogart’s look off camera?, I’m wondering.) Tks, SH

      Hi Steve – thanks for commenting! I appreciate your candor, and I second your opinions regarding greats like The Killers and DOA as quintessential noir. I’m glad to hear that you’d be interested in read more about Bogie’s cool casual-wear (much of it indeed likely copped from the actor’s own wardrobe and personal style), and I certainly have plans on covering these in future posts as I agree with you that they’re atypical of casual attire often worn in movies from that period. I’ve been trying to do some research just to pin down what the actual colors of those pieces were, and I hope to have additional posts scheduled soon!

    Sir,

    Corona Virus has had many, many negatives; however, with lemons come lemonade, and there are two glasses of said elixir I’d like to comment on.

    The first: your regular updates have been a much needed dose of normalcy and comfort in these trying times. It is admittedly a small thing, but makes all the difference when the proverbial rug is pulled out from under us. For that, I thank you.

    The second: discovering new content that hopefully graces your humble publication. I have recently subscribed to Hulu, and with it discovered the network’s original show Future Man. I cannot stress how awesome I find it. The humor is right up my alley. I would encourage you to check it out. I would also hope to see a few posts in the future (get it?) about Wolf’s dad/80s-esque sprezzatura.

    As always, keep up the fine work.

    Sonny
