No such bloody thing! It’s the wrong material (looks like suede, should be sheepskin). Hardy’s goggles are the wrong type – they didn’t get issued until ’41. Also, if they were going to be tooling about at 500 Ft over the Channel looking for 109s (which simply didn’t happen), they never would have gone dressed in roll neck sweaters and Irvin jackets – that’s stuff’s for high altitude where it’s cold, and where the RAF really were during the Dunkirk evacuation – and much further inland so as to stop the bombers before they got to the beach. Hence the army asking “where’s the bloody RAF?”

Comment on Homecoming: Betsy Heimann on Costuming Godless by Lord Christopher Laverty http://clothesonfilm.com/homecoming-betsy-heimann-on-costuming-godless/#comment-61152 Sat, 16 Dec 2017 16:06:06 +0000 http://clothesonfilm.com/?p=36539#comment-61152 From the official images I unfortunately could not find any of the black women in Blackdom. If you have not seen the show I definitely reccomend giving it a go though. Personally I’m a big fan and the costuming is excellent.

Over half the photos are of the white guys.

Didn’t they have any other photos you could show?

Comment on American Gigolo: Armani Gere by Reid Butler http://clothesonfilm.com/american-gigolo-armani-gere/#comment-61148 Sat, 14 Oct 2017 14:07:00 +0000 http://clothesonfilm.com/?p=13314#comment-61148 I’m glad to see people are still keeping this thread alive.

Of course, I find it hard to hate movies that I grew up with, but the subject is often overlooked: just how much
of our personal style comes from movies and our idolatry of stars… Of course, nowadays, we have the internet to help us
dissect their styles and buy their looks.

It would not surprise me a whit if some executives got together and said, “We need a high profile movie that will
sell Armani suits to the public,” and thus American Gigolo was born.

I noticed this, because I wore a lot of black in the early 80’s and would receive the same comments that Julian received in the movie. Black wasn’t very popular in the early 80’s, but celebrities began wearing later in the decade, for it’s slimming effect. I quickly grew tired of black, after celebrities began wearing it into the ground, which is something they’re still doing today. It was fun when few were wearing it, but now it’s just boring and tiresome.
