It’s damn near impossible to put Leonardo DiCaprio in a suit and make him look bad. But from the looks of this photo, snapped on the set of Scorsese’s upcoming financial industry takedown, The Wolf of Wall Street, Marty has managed it somehow. It’s hard to tell what’s worse: the button placement, that power tie or the unbridled excess of material—but it’s all another reminder of how good we’ve got it in the double-breasted department nowadays. Keep it tight, gentlemen.
One of the best parts of Casino is the endless parade of exquisitely tacky suits worn by Robert De Niro over the course of the film. (It was Vegas in the 80s, after all.) But if you don’t feel like sitting through three hours to see them all, a clever designer just rounded up 45 of the salmon- and mint-hued wonders for this tribute poster. Do not, under any circumstances, use it as a shopping list.
George was the quiet one—at least according to the fan magazines.
But while Lennon and McCartney still soak up most of the praise, we’d like to single out Mr. Harrison as the most stylish of the Beatles. We don’t mean the Hard Day’s Night-era Chesterfields, or the Tommy Nutter suits that came a few years later.

So on the heels of Martin Scorsese’s new documentary about the underdog Beatle, we're taking a closer look at the man’s unique style. Especially the quiet parts.
With film blogs are currently buzzing about Martin Scorcese’s planned remake of The Gambler, we thought we’d take a moment to salute one of our favorite subgenres: the gambling movie. This isn’t about high-stakes games of skill like poker or pool; it’s just one blind chance after another, following the ebbs and flows of chaos. And maybe the occasional casino heist…
Kempt bids a fond farewell to Sydney Pollack today, a filmmaker who made his name on restraint, subtle humanism and consummate professionalism. In short, a man in full. As his recent co-star George Clooney put it, “Sydney made the world a little better, movies a little better and even dinner a little better. A tip of the hat to a class act. He will be missed.”
Back before they turned into the geriatric juggernaut that seems to be on a never-ending world tour, the Rolling Stones were the coolest rock band in the universe. In 1969, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and the gang crisscrossed the country in support of their album *Beggar's Banquet*, culminating in the infamous free concert at Altamont in Northern California where Hell's Angels killed a member of the audience.
