"Film Fashion Faux Pas" or "Hurr people in the past dressed differently!"

90% of the outfits posted here were perfectly acceptable at the time. Even Connery.

I'd say lot of the second one but also more of 'light hearted thread for a bit of fun'. I assume so anyway, I didn't start the thread but the use of the term 'faux pas' makes me think it was just for a laugh. We can ask the Mods to close it if it doesn't meet your expectations though. Or you could post your own that you deem worthy of the title of the thread to show us all up. Just a thought.

And it has been pointed out that some of them mentioned were done so because of the time period. I personally was laughing at clothes from the 80s.

Danny Glover - Predator. Deliberately dressed out of line for his character therefore not PAAT (perfectly acceptable at time)
JCVD - I have no idea what time that is apt for
Zardoz - um, again - which time?
Goldfinger - fair point, full on contemporary man at C&A
Duckie - was out of sorts with the people around him dresswise so, again, a character thing not something PAAT
Johnny Depp - seriously not PAAT in any group I was part of in the 80s. Bad dressing on Venice Beach et al doesn't count
Farina - jumper is ludicrous and wasn't PAAT
Douglas - this fashion choice was ridiculed at the time as well so not PAAT
RDJ - is supposed to look and be dressed like a dick so not PAAT
Breakfast Club - mainly fine at time on that one and I was surprised to see it come up
Footloose - sadly too tight jeans and vests were in in some quarters but still looked silly to many at time
Labyrinth - which time do we mean?
Pretty in Pink - the resounding opinion from the people I knew at the time was 'what a fucking mess of a dress'.
Superman - deliberate fashion faux pas not PAAT
FLash Gordon - see Zardoz and Labyrinth

I'm not really sure that 90% thing stands up tbh.

We've been deriding the 80s a lot here. But...



They still look pretty cool, despite Keifer's mullet and Alex Winter's shredded crop-top.

Let's look at Corey Haim. Clearly his clothes are atrocious but they are openly mocked by the Frog brothers anyway so again I can forgive that.



As for the Frog brothers. They are dressed for action and it's hard to imagine that had TLB been made today that they would be wearing anything too disimilar.

But as for Max:



Shudder...

Ha-ha-ha! And people used to think The Lost Boys was soooooooo cool - the fools! Just cos it had a shit Echo and the Bunnymen cover of a Doors song in it. They used to laugh when I said Near Dark was so much better! (Actually, they used to say: "Near what...?") But who's laughing now, eh? WHO'S LAUGHING NOW? MWA-HA-HA-HA-HAAAAAAAAAAARGH...!!!

I quite enjoy both of them. Work well as a double bill.

Ditto. And I still like (and have) The Lost Boys soundtrack.

Never tried that. Would be a good midnight double-bill at Halloween. You gotta admit though, one of them has dated really badly. And it ain't the one with the following exchange:

"Jesse. How old are you?"

"Let me put it this way - I fought for the south."

Same here. I even had it on vinyl when I was thirteen. It's probably my most watched film and the fact I can poke fun at the fashions in no way alters my view of it as a kick-ass vampire movie that is still cool despite wearing its 80s badge proudly on its sleeve. It's more of a time-capsule than Near Dark but so what? Both movies are two very different takes on a popular theme and while Near Dark may be more asthetically stylish it lacks a lot of Lost Boys charm and humour. Don't get me wrong, I still think Near Dark is great, but does it feature a shirtless, muscular saxophone player in tight purple pants?

Oh, and the People Are Strange cover is better than the original.

Totally agree - anyone covering a song by The Doors instantly makes it 1000 times better by simply not being The Doors.

This ^

The only film that even comes close to Lost Boys in terms of amount of times viewed by me is probably The Goonies.

I also had the soundtrack at age 12 (on tape though, not vinyl) and despite having a lot of time for Near Dark I'd probably watch Lost Boys over it 8 times out of 10.

Wouldn't go that far - but I did like their cover.

Each to their own I guess. Can't say it's a boy band that's particularly impressed me.

Oh - and ditto Horribleives.

Fashion-wise I can't really think of any off the top of my head. From the thread, Zardoz has always looked the silliest but I do remember the royal piss taken out of that jumper in Basic Instinct. It got nearly as much airtime as the legcross.
