Taking a look at three films with undeniable coolness: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2009), The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999) and The Thomas Crowne Affair (1968).

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2009): Brad Pitt displays style both classic and effortless in this unapologetically sentimental film. It’s hard to go wrong with motorcycle jackets, desert boots and v-neck sweaters- no matter what era you’re in.

The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999): A film that seduces you into a lifestyle of unlimited money, beautiful scenery and borrowed Princeton blazers, The Talented Mr. Ripley makes up for it’s unsettling creepiness with a sartorial wardrobe you’d think Michael Bastian and GANT put together.

The Thomas Crowne Affair (1968): The innately rebellious Steve McQueen in the role of a millionaire turned gentleman-thief whose well-tailored suits and iconic foldable Persols bring as much charisma to the caper flick as any other element.
