Fred Astaire in The Gay Divorcee

Ok, don't laugh at me but - my twelve-year-old just taught me how to do a screen grab.

Which means - I now have this tool to help with a project I've been dying to try!! I'd like to start sharing what I consider defining sartorial moments from great films.

I have always loved this scene from the Fred Astaire movie, The Gay Divorcee. That buckled leather strap in his lapel is fascinating. I've never seen a modern version of this...have you?

I'm guessing it's attached to a chained pocketwatch.

Can someone please make a modern version of this??!!

To me, this moment is one of the all-time greats of men's fashion on film.
