The Icon Collection: North By Northwest

It is arguably the most famous suit in movie history.

Two tailoring houses can lay claim to it. The label seen here seems to be from Quintino of Beverly Hills.

 

The colour is hotly debated and difficult to find.

The cut is classic, but not sack-like as was the prevailing style of the day.

 

Its wearer was the most elegant man of his, or maybe even our, day.

After much research, hours of viewing the film in super slow motion, days of internet research, and weeks of fabric research, I’m going to reproduce it for The Icon Collection.

Introducing the North By Northwest suit, as close as any of us will get to being Cary Grant.
