Style: Cary’s Suit

Cary Grant, Kilgour French & Stanbury, North By Northwest (1959), Quintino of Beverly Hills, Suits

“North By Northwest isn’t a film about what happens to Cary Grant, it’s about what happens to his suit.”   Todd McEwen

I have always coveted this suit. A beautiful steel grey 3 button. Though not a defining piece of wardrobe for a movie, like Alex’s bowler in “A Clockwork Orange” or Marilyn’s white halter dress in “The Seven Year Itch’, it is one of the finest tailored, coolest pieces of cloth in any film. If I could have anything from any movie it would be this suit. Of course looking like Cary Grant helped.
