American Gigolo

Before menswear had a hashtag and a billion blogs to follow, American Gigolo was the film to watch for Italian style. Richard Gere’s character Julian Kaye was a male prostitute, but his penchant for Armani clothes pimped the Italian brand so hard it put Giorgio on the map. The film showcased tailored everything from sports jackets, suits, and tuxedos made in fabrics that ranged from linen to silk. The film literally had Gere Aramani’d out down to his boxers.
