Get Carter

After all that prep and Ivy I thought it might make sense to take things somewhere a little grittier. A black trench coat, a three piece suit and a blonde are pretty much all a guy ever really needs to get shit done - on a revenge killing spree or not.

  1. I love this movie. It's so bleak. Michael Caine is among the sharpest dressers in cinema.

    Get Carter is one of my favorite British gangster films. Michael Caine is pretty badass as well, definitely dressed to perfection in this.

  3. I watched this movie for the first time three weeks ago and was stuck by Caine's understated, effortless style. And the ending really caught me by surprise.

  4. Sometimes I think about people my age who've grown up only knowing Michael Caine as an old/father-figure/butler type. Or people who think Get Carter is a Sylvester Stallone movie. What a shame...

  5. I love my oxfords and boat shoes as much as the next guy, but as a blue collar dude from the midwest, I feel like trying to copy the WASP prepster look can only lead to sartorial and existential ass clownery. Posts like this help set my mind at ease and remind me that the Ivy League doesn't have a monopoly on classic style.
