Perhaps it’s the concentration of star power or the glamour of the French Riviera, but the Cannes Film Festival always seems to turn up some of the best style moments of the year.
And since the week of pomp and cinema kicks off today, we thought we’d take a look back at how the style icons did Cannes.
Quite handsomely, we must say...»
We couldn’t let the day go by without wishing a happy birthday to one of our favorite actors and men of style, the perennially underrated Michael Caine. Have a good one, sir.
A lot of blog ink has been spilled gushing over the black Aquascutum trench coat in
Get Carter, and we’re no exception. It’s the most iconic item in one of the most iconic flicks of the ’70s—the kind of thing that comes up for auction once every decade.
Well, today was the day. Bonhams
gaveled it off early this morning for a comparatively measly £7,500, or just under $12,000. There’s always 2021.
These 1964 shots come from a Brian Duffy retrospective opening today in London. Note the thumbless grip…and of course, those frames.

Michael Caine is one of the most stylish men in cinema, so it figures that he has good taste in music. The English actor, who's won two Oscars and was knighted by the Queen in 2000, recently issued a saccharine compilation CD in the UK of his favorite mellow tunes, called *Cained*; the disc, which contains everything from Nina Simone to Doctor Rockit, is now available on Amazon as an import.
Apparently the project came about after Caine mentioned to his fellow
Commander of the British Empire Sir Elton John that he frequently makes mixed tapes for friends like Sir Sean Connery, Sir Roger Moore and Baron Lloyd-Weber. With the penchant the design cabal has for seizing on anything this coolly quirky, you can count on *Cained* providing the soundtrack to more than one event during that men's fashion week everyone's babbling about.
