The Talented Mr. Ripley is certainly a favorite for the amazing acting and wardrobe. It’s constantly cited as a source of sartorial inspiration. Obviously, this makes it a perfect addition to the Date Night Series. I love everything Gwyneth Paltrow wears as Marge Sherwood in the film. She is elegant and classy, but cool and relaxed at the same time. The perfect balance for a woman. Check out Skip’s look here.

In a way, Jaws is the movie that began it all. In my early days of blogging, I had put together a post about the fantastic menswear from this cult classic. Skip reached out to me as a fellow Jaws enthusiast and suggested we do a collaboration of curating styles inspired by great films. Hence, Date Night was born and the rest is history. As a special Date Night issue this week both Skip and I have offered up double hitters. Head over to Alex Grant for Matt Hooper and one of the prep kids and keep reading for Ellen Brody and Sam Quint. Just keep in mind, if you’re going to try and rock Quint’s seafarer’s getup, don’t forget to wash your clothes in salt water and sand them down with some beach sand. There’s no cheating with this look if you want that real weathered appearance.
Skip hit it out of the park yet again with this great look from Woody Allen in Annie Hall. Like Diane Keaton’s outfit, this look will take you through practically every date. Whether it’s a movie, picnic, or nice cup of coffee on a sunday morning, you’ll have that great easy and classic look that Woody Allen pulls off so effortlessly.
Skip and his wife Tisha were watching Annie Hall this week and realized how perfect it was for Date Night! This great movie is iconic for style – women’s style in particular. As the eccentric Annie Hall, Diane Keaton single handedly made menswear cool and sexy for women. And men and women love her for it! I absolutely love this look on her, and for any woman. It’s so easy and comfortable but clean and tailored at the same time. I do find her tie a bit goofy and overpowering for someone of my stature (5’3″), so I slimmed it down with a Hill-Side chambray selection. This is a great versatile look for any date. Whether it’s a sit down dinner or a stroll through the park, you’ll look stunning.

Thanks to Brian Buell for the excellent Date Night suggestion. Sidney Poitier is one of my all time favorite actors, and he is absolutely fantastic in the classic, Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner. And with Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn as supporting actors, this film is a real gem. Skip did an amazing job putting together the look of young and dashing Dr. John Prentice. You may not be a doctor yourself, or as down right good looking as Poitier, but you certainly have no excuse not to get your hands on a perfectly tailored navy suit, classic tie, and gentlemanly behavior.
