Instead of watching the same old repeats and lame programmes cosy up to an old classic, it’s a great way to avoid the usual Christmas dirge and can be a useful sartorial lesson.
I’ve just finished watching ‘It Happened One Night‘ a wonderful classic featuring Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert. Clark looks his usual dashing self in the film, wearing a casual tweed suit with pockets and a gathered back. The real clothing controversy comes in the scene where he undresses, unable to take both a shirt and undershirt off quickly enough for the scene he abandoned the vest creating a nationwide drop in demand for the garment which is surely a greater lesson learnt than anything you could garner watching My Family repeats, or god forbid, Little Britain USA.

50 Films that influenced men’s style

The problem with spin-off men’s style magazines is that they’re often not given the same TLC that the main version is. Men’s Vogue hasn’t got anywhere near the level of the main Vogue magazine, but with features like ‘50 films that influenced men’s style‘, it’s getting there.

Starting from 1934 to 2007, the article includes everything from Easy Rider to Gigolo to The Royal Tenebaums and has little blurbs of information on just how every film has influenced men’s style. For instance, The Royal Tenebaums is credited with kickstarting hipster’s love affair of all things bright and sporty. An example of the hold movie stars had on their audience in the 1930′s is exhibited in the blurb on It Happened One Night. Clark Gable chose not to wear an undershirt in the film millions of people followed suit, nearly bankrupting the entire undershirt industry.
