The Thomas Crown affair
The legend that is Steve McQueen dons a wardrobe against type. The 60s icon ditches his usual rugged casual look as a highly refined gentleman, with criminal intentions.
Dr No – From Russia with love & Casino Royale – Skyfall
Connery and Craig still stand as the best dressed incarnations of 007. Both actors look as sharp as they do dangerous in their respective capers.
Arguably one of the best dressed films of all time. Each character, in each of the Ocean’s films holds their own in the style stakes, but George Clooney took the gold trophy for his simple elegance.
Crazy stupid love
If any character got men around the world to up their game it’s this guy. Ryan Gosling’s barfly demonstrates a smooth transition from formal to casual with equal panache.
Alfie (1966 & 2004)
Both Michael Caine and Jude Law have brought this character to life with a distinctly British style.
The talented Mr Ripley
Jude Law’s American preppy loafing around the Italian coast looked so good that it immediately shot the actor in to Hollywood legends.
A single man
The level of detail seen here was inevitable from fashion maestro Tom Ford. George’s suits, shoes, watches and glasses are all of the finest quality and Colin Firth has never looked so good.
The great Gatsby
Technically not a film character, but Di Caprio’s recent portrayal of this literary icon beautifully puts the style of the 20s together with modern cuts.
Batman Begins, Dark Knight & Dark Knight Rises
Ok we can agree that the suit his alter-ego dons is an impressive look, however Christian Bale’s Bruce Wayne was certainly the sharpest incarnation of the bored playboy.
It takes a highly refined man to look good when he’s spinning around in a rotating corridor. Joseph Gordon-Levitt manages to pull this off and steal every scene he appears in.
