We’ve all been there – sitting there watching a movie, and been totally taken aback by a characters wardrobe every once in a while. Whether it’s Brad Pitt’s disco thug inspired get up in David Fincher’s “Fight Club” or Joseph Gordon Levitt’s simple jacket, jeans, and glasses in the phenomenally under-rated Brick.
While it takes a small army of wardrobe people and designers to create “the perfect look”, there’s a couple of sites that are catered towards being able to bring you the radness that you’ve seen on screen at a much lower price than buying a stylist to cater to your every whim. Namely, Found Item Clothing has a decent collection of shirts seen in (mostly 1980′s) movies, such as Cameron from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off‘s green medical symbol shirt, Val Kilmer’s “I <3 Toxic Waste” shirt from Real Genius, and even an obscure Chinese baseball shirt from The Big Lebowski. Prices run about $25 – a fraction of the price of trying to buy one of the originals now.
Google is also a great way to go if you’re looking for “that” shirt, but be careful of eBay rip offs and badly made shirts. Ideally you’ll want something cotton / poly for that comfortable fit, and remember that the shirt will shrink a little when washed.
