Bloomberg Business: "The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Has the Best Clothes and Cars of Any Film in 2015"

“You look important … or at least your suit does.” 

So opens The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Guy Ritchie’s punchy bon bon of an action flick, a remake of the mid-1960s TV series of the same name. But instead of a weekly romp of Cold War spy versus spy, you get a feature-length origin story to the buddy-comedy pairing of sarcastic Russian KGB agent Ilya Kuryakin with suave CIA operative Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) as they race to save the world from nuclear destruction.
You also get a very nice suit—many, many nice suits—and sunglasses and watches and glossy vintage roadsters roaring through the Italian countryside. The film’s fashion is as on-point as the supercars are slick. One of the funniest scenes involves a champagne-fueled tête-a-tête in a posh boutique about if a Paco Rabanne belt can go with Dior.

Even Bond may want to take some notes.
