“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).

    Just wondering. Any chance of a post on Gary Grant’s wardrobe in “That Touch of Mink”? Some serious slick slacks. I learned a lot from that film. Give it a look. Keep up the good work!

      I’m thrilled that you’d be interested in seeing items from That Touch of Mink! I have very fond memories of watching that movie with my grandmother (we watched many classics!), and I just picked up my own DVD copy in the hopes that someone may be interested in seeing some of Grant’s elegant tailored attire from that film as well. Thank you!

    Greetings and a nice day to you! Discovered your site just a while ago and needless to say, most of my freetime has been spent reading… Somehow I have a keen interest in old movies set in Africa, like King Solomons mines, The Mummy etc. Maybe it’s because when I look out of the window, there’s a meter of snow… Anyway, after reading your great article about Mogambo, started thinking. How about Hatari? To me that movie is one of the great classics of Africana, and pretty styley too. I’m quite surprised if someone has’t proposed that already, just haven’t red all comments yet. 😀

    I’ve been enjoying your posts for a few months now. Keep ’em coming! The level of attention and detail you put into observing these clothes are amazing.
    If I may suggest…George Segal in “Fun with Dick and Jane” from 1977. There are lots of nice suits he wears. There is one scene where Segal wears a tan checkered suit with a dark knit tie and brown sunglasses. Just BAMF.

    Great work. Much appreciated. Keep ’em coming.

    Would love to see a post and read your breakdown on any of Mahershala Ali’s outfits as Dr. Shirley from ‘Green Book’. Seeing the film for a second time this evening. Great performance by him and I’m pleased he walked away today with the Best Supporting Actor award!

      I absolutely agree – I’m glad you’d look forward to reading about that! As soon as I’m able to pick up a copy, I plan on writing about Mahershala Ali’s supreme style as Dr. Shirley. From casual (that mustard plaid jacket) to formal and ultra-formal, Ali’s Shirley radiated mid-century elegance, and I can’t wait to analyze his style further.

    I’ve been re-watching some Dick Van Dyke Show episodes from the early 1960s and find myself really admiring Rob Petrie’s clothing wardrobe.
    To me it still provides an image that’s stylish, clean-cut, very handsome.
    Maybe you’ll have time for an article one day.
    Always enjoying your posts – thank you.

    I’ve been loving this blog for years now– keep up the great work! It’s been a all-around great resource, and I really can’t compliment your attention to detail enough.
    I was just re-watching How to Steal a Million (never heard of it before I stumbled across it on Netflix a couple of years ago, and then I had to buy it on Amazon!), and thought that Peter O’Toole’s suiting would be a perfect subject to tackle for your blog. From his Goldfinger-esque 3-piece to his dinner suit to his others, it all still looks great today.

    Hi.
    First want to say thanks for that page. The dresses you show are very inspiring, even if not always wearable.
    Maybe I have two interesting characters for you.
    First one you already wrote about, it is Gordon Gekko. But I’d like to see some of the new suits in the second part of Wall Street. Michael Douglas, I think I read that in an interview, said about “the suits are cooler”.
    The second one is more futuristic. Keanu Reeves as Johnny Mnemonic. I think the suit in this is very special, but timeless cool. Seems a little bit out of the seventies (just like goodfellas), but futuristic either too. AND the material of the suit falls very thin but heavy, difficult to describe.
    Hope you have a look at these movies and you like the suits.
    Best regards

    An interesting left of centre idea I think is John Candy in Who’s Harry Crumb. Candy looks good for a big man in his well cut suits in the comedy. He wears an interesting light grey linen Western inspired suit at the star of the film.

    There’s a new show on Cinemax called ‘Warrior’ based on a pitch that Bruce Lee never got to make before his death, and it was resurrected by his daughter and the creators of Banshee, based on the Tongs/Triads of 1878 San Francisco. It feels very similar to Peaky Blinders and Banshee, with awesome style, pace, and killer action. All the criminals wear these super sharp suits to distinguish themselves as members of their specific Tong, I think a dissection of the main character’s gang outfit would be really cool.

    Here’s an image:

    Have you considered ‘Paris Blues’, 1961 directed by Martin Ritt? A Parisian-American ex-patriate duo of Paul Newman and Sidney Poitier are Jazz musicians/composers that meet two American girls in Paris on holiday, Joanne Woodward and Diahann Carroll.
    Duke Ellington won an Oscar for the music, with a cameo by Louis Armstrong playing himself with a silly pseudonym.

    Everyone’s wardrobe is immaculately chic Parisian postwar ‘modern’. Poitier is the more stylish of the two musicians, having matched shirt/tie color combinations that had to have been a great improvisation on the standard white shirt/tie combo. Newman sports a black long sleeve polo most of the film, with a plain Mac and sport jacket as a counter point to Poitier’s sharp threads.

    Woodward does a pre-Victoria’s Secret inspiring scene in a black lingerie bustier at Newman’s apartment that was a real high note! Diahann Carroll is lovely in several scenes with her quaffed hair and Chanel inspired outfits.

      Great suggestion – thank you! I’ve been wanting an excuse to watch Paris Blues, as it looks very stylish and I’m sure I’d love the music. Adding this to my list – much appreciated!

    Great site BAMF. Keep up the great work. One wardrobe I would love to see you cover is the Will Smith wardrobe from the movie Bad Boys II. So many great looks that he absolutely nailed with the Purple Ozwald Boateng suit taking centre stage. But from start to finish he looked great and accessorised perfectly for that character. Looking forward to seeing that.

    Any chance you could cover Raymond Reddington from The Blacklist? He has such a dapper supervillain aesthetic, and many outfits shown in great detail.
    Plus, if you haven’t watched it, it’s a damn good show.
