The upcoming action thriller John Wick is a movie about revenge. It’s a classic revenge thriller for the 21st century. If you like action-thrillers and you’re a fan of custom tailored suits, you’re in for a treat: Keanu Reeves’ wardrobe is something else.
The premise: revenge!
Reeves plays a former hitman with a soft spot.
No longer involved in the business of killing, all he wants to do is care for his extremely cute puppy.
One day, he stumbles upon some thieves. What do you think they do? Steal his car and kill his puppy!
Yes, shit happens to retired hitmen.
Unfortunately–for the thieves–the puppy was a present from John Wick’s deceased wife.
This is the last straw. Wick goes on a revenge “spree.”
As with most acts of retaliation, things do not go smoothly. Wick’s actions cause a Russian crime lord to put a bounty on his head. Hence, more killing…! Not so fun for Wick, but fun for us, for sure.
The wardrobe: dark!
If you’re wondering how all this relates to men’s suiting, go watch the trailer and come back.
Wick isn’t just an expert killer, he’s also a snappy dresser who transforms even the most brutal acts of vengeance into instances of great style, wearing a black suit with a navy shirt and blue tie.
If ever a movie existed that used a character’s wardrobe to good effect, this is it. As one website put it, Keanu’s character has a “dark brooding past and a truck-load of unadulterated rage.” All this is reflected perfectly in his dark-on-dark shirt, tie and suit.
On an average day, black-on-black or black-on-navy probably isn’t a “look” many people would feel comfortable sporting.
But if you’re John Wick and you happen to be wielding the kind of gun capable of killing multiple criminals within seconds, you’re probably not going to want to wear anything else.
Wick wears his suit like an angel of death. How would you wear your dark suit?
