Aero’s 30s style (On The) Waterfront jacket

By Stefano on December 12th, 2012

Want to look like Marlon Brando in On the Waterfront? Good to see that Aero is resurrecting the thirties style jacket worn by Terry Malloy in the iconic 1954 film. I always associate this type of jackes with the depression era of the 1930s, so given the current economic climate they really ought to be well in vogue.

It is a Green and Black “Trapper” Check wool with 100% wool knit in black and a period style figured rayon lining (though if you feel the cold you can also have it with an Alpaca Wool lining for an extra £20. Aero has made the sure the period detail is accurate by including period zipper and using blind studs on the pocket flaps.

And here he is wearing one in the movie.

Yours for £280. First spotted by His Knibs

Get the Look: Marlon Brando in ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’

By Will Reid on May 5th, 2009

streetcar.jpgWhen my English teacher announced we would be studying ‘A Streetcar Named Desire,’ I have to admit to a light leap of the heart as I reminisced on John Galliano‘s ‘Blanche DuBois’ collection of 1988 and Marlon Brando in all his retro glory; oozing sex appeal and hard-edged fashion prowess. With these thoughts in mind, and a bit of time spent re-watching the iconic film made in 1951, I set about creating an outfit based on the look of Stanley Kowalski.

I’ve mixed a pair of amazing chino/casual-esque trousers with a bit of a vintage feel and a thin leather belt from with a basic tee from Topman and a pair of roughed up plimsolls from New Look. This is simple and seemingly effortless but the look as a whole is incredibly effective at turning you into a rugged, alpha-male icon. Now, with the fashion bit past, can anyone do a good New Orleans accent?

A big budget Hollywood film that spans the time period 1918 to 2005, only backwards (!) was bound to provide scope (and challenges) when it comes to costume and styling. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which opens in cinemas here next Friday, is the latest film by David Fincher (Fight Club, Seven), a director with an artist’s eye for detail, costume being no exception.

With a range of eras to choose from, the Bohemian postwar style is what jumps out. Amongst stand out pieces, leading man Brad Pitt wears a series of jaunty driving caps in homage to Marlon Brando‘s fifties counter cultural icon.
