6 Famous Suit-Wearers on the Silver Screen

From Henry Cavill’s bespoke suits in The Man From U.N.C.L.E. to Tom Cruise’s stylish tailoring in the Mission: Impossible franchise, Hollywood designers have created some truly iconic clothing for some of the world’s biggest stars. Here are a few which we think stand out the most, brought to you by the top launderette in Malta, Portughes Dry Cleaning.  


1. Daniel Craig as James Bond

The name of James Bond is synonymous with sharp-looking suits and impeccable outfits, so it should come as no surprise that the most famous fictional spy would kick off this list. While his predecessor Pierce Brosnan was styled by Italian fashion house, Brioni, Daniel Craig wore Tom Ford in both Skyfall and Spectre.


2. Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne (Batman)

You could argue that Christian Bale would look good in anything (and we’d agree), however, the Armani suits he wore as the tormented superhero-slash-billionaire definitely didn’t allow the Batsuit to hog all the spotlight.


3. Al Pacino as Tony Montana (Scarface)

Whatever you think about the notorious, dubiously-accented drug lord that Pacino infamously brought to life in 1983, you can’t deny he had pretty good taste in menswear. Of course, it’s his white, three-piece suit that is arguably the most memorable, complete with a silk dress shirt, straight flapped hip pockets and a single-button jacket with notch lapels.


4. John Travolta as Vincent Vega (Pulp Fiction)

It was film designer Betsy Heimann who decided on Travolta’s look for his dishevelled, cowboy-like, gun-brandishing character. The suit was a black-and-white, shirt-and-tie affair made of linen, and has now become instantly recognisable with film audiences everywhere.


5. Michael Douglas as Gordon Gekko (Wall Street)

Gekko’s classic pinstripe suit with a contrasting white collar and blue stripe shirt underneath brought back an old-fashioned style, harking back to the days when people used to wear detachable cuffs and collars. In fact, this contrasting look went on to influence the financial community, and stockbrokers today can be seen clad in Gekko-inspired suits, which is said to make the wearer look more powerful.


6. George Peppard as Paul Varjack (Breakfast at Tiffany’s)

Audrey Hepburn’s string of pearls and black Givenchy dress are so iconic that it’s easy to overlook the attire of her co-star, Peppard. The latter was dressed in a number of tasteful and well-cut suits throughout the entire film, including a cardigan and wool coat combo for a preppier look, as well as smarter attire in the form of a slim blue suit with a white handkerchief folded in his breast pocket and a skinny tie.
