The red bow tie is hard to pull off, but if you’ve recently lost your fortune and are wandering the city in search of authentic life, you might get a pass.
This snap comes from an upcoming Jason Bateman flick, The Longest Week, currently filming on location on Wall Street. (If you guessed it was a mashup of Arthur and Arrested Development, you weren’t far off.)

This snap comes from AMC’s first digital-only offering, The Trivial Pursuits of Arthur Banks, which arrived online yesterday. The show follows Adam Goldberg as a meta-minded theater director who happens to be extremely well-dressed—the latter part coming courtesy of West Village tailor Doyle Mueser. We hadn’t thought of mod suits as a hallmark of existential confusion…but we could be convinced.
