10 More Iconic On-Screen Accessories
- Kempt Staff
And while we’ll agree that those are some damn cool shades, we must take exception to such a patently absurd blanket statement. Even if you were to limit it to accessories, it misses the mark when taking stock of history’s most stylish on-screen accoutrements—the watches, the sunglasses, the Stetsons—that over time have become just as iconic as the character who wore them.
So we’ve gone ahead and rounded up 10 of our favorites.
James Dean’s lucky pocket watch in East of Eden.
Farley Granger’s lighter in Stranger on a Train.
Harrison Ford’s Alden boots in Indiana Jones.
Tom Cruise’s aviators in Top Gun.
Dan Aykroyd and Jim Belushi’s Wayfarers in The Blues Brothers.
Steve McQueen’s Persols in The Thomas Crown Affair.
Steve McQueen’s Heuer Monaco in Le Mans.
Johnny Depp’s cigarette holder in Fear and Loathing.
Ryan Gosling’s Patek Philippe in Drive.
John Wayne’s Stetson in... everything.
And if you think we’ve made any glaring omissions of our own, feel free to tweet us your picks: @GetKempt.
