Michael Caine’s blue three piece suit in ‘Get Carter’ is cut with a well-proportioned notched lapel – which avoided the short-lived 70s trend for huge, deeply bellied lapels with low gorges. The cut of the jacket is perfectly fitted to modern proportions, not too slim and with no excess drape and the five button single breasted waistcoat adds just enough gravitas, whilst also remaining a very simple cut.
Finished with a pale blue shirt – which again avoids standing too tall as was the fashion for 70s shirt collars, and a plain black silk tie – of a quite obviously superior silk, the ensemble is about as simple as it gets and allows the quality and cut of the suit itself to shine through.
