Every good movie has its hero, but it’s really the colourfully crazy characters, which we never forget.
And when they’re insanely unhinged or crazy in the coconut, there’s nothing quite like a mad man’s suit to show off their derangement.
Here’s some of the maddest mens suits from the movies.
The Alice in Wonderland story has lasted the test of time and one of the stars of the surreal tale is the Mad Hatter. Throughout time, the character’s suits have been recreated over and over again, but the fantastically funky suit worn by Johnny Depp and Tim Burton’s latest offering is certifiably MAD!
Bank clerk Stanley Ipkiss is transformed into a manic super-hero when he wears a mysterious mask. That’s a manic super-hero who wears a ridiculously yellow suit. Making him look like a cross between a pimp and a clown, which is a weird mix if you think about it. The suit is actually quite cool though.
Somebody who lives in a large chocolate factory surrounded by strange orange-faced dwarves is going to be a little eccentric or just completely bonkers. And a bonkers man needs a bonkers suit so Willy Wonka gets given a huge dose of velvet.
Saturday Night Fever
Responsible for raving mad dance moves in discos around the world, John Travolta’s character in Saturday Night Fever knows how to get down and boogie. And if you’re the king of the disco floor, then only a superfly white suit with crazy flares and collars will do.
Many would award the late and great Heath Ledger’s character in The Dark Night with the accolade of the insanest villain in movie history. Such an accolade is going to require one hell of a wardrobe and he doesn’t disappoint with a collection of vintage suits throughout the movie. Think ringmaster meets professor meets psycho clown.
Professor Klump’s attire isn’t that nutty really, but the fat suit worn by Eddie Murphy is pretty loco and transforms him into a fatty, fruitcake professor who is quite literally larger than life. For all the doubters, a fat suit worn by a man is technically a man’s suit.
