Sartorial Icon: Thomas Crown

One of my favorite films is the Thomas Crown Affair (yes, the 1968 version).  The recent '90s version is entertaining, but the original has far more character, which is often the case in my opinion.  The risqué scene where Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway seduce each other over chess is far more entertaining than the ubiquitous state of undress one confronts in today's films.

What do you get for learn from the man who has everything?  Perhaps, we learn a look is more about an attitude of confidence than mere attire.  His confidence comes through whether sporting a bespoke suit or ball cap.

Interesting waistcoat.

 Pink shirt, Persols & Pin in the collar.

Blue with Prince of Wales.

Mr. Crown is a man about town.  I advise you to note well the nuances of his personal style and the prominence of his comfort as well.  Sure, he's just a character, but it's been said that "All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players."



  1. Great movie! And I like the remake too.
