Before the summer escapes us for another year, let's extend the warmth of August and not contemplate going back to the office just yet.

We can achieve this by reminding ourselves of balmy summer evenings with a look at  some chic Mediterranean-based movies with beautiful coastal settings and unforgettable screen characters.

Whilst yearning for summer to last we can also steal classic menswear style tips from these timeless films.

 

ALAIN DELON CASUAL LOOK - PURPLE NOON

Alain Delon plays "The Talented Mr. Ripley" in the original, not the Jude Law/Matt Damon remake. Oozing cool in every shot, Mr. Delon is perfectly dressed while carrying out his devious plan.Purple Noon Alain Delon's style

While the navy trousers/light blue shirt combo is commonly associated with office wear these days, Delon proves that, if you choose your fabrics well, this style also works seamlessly onboard a boat deck. 

With a linen shirt and the cotton trousers rolled up with a maritime twist, shoes are not even required to pull off this look.

CARY GRANT'S SUIT - TO CATCH A THIEF

 The Hitchcock classic follows Cary Grant as "The Cat", an infamous con man in the luxurious setting of the Cote D'Azur.

From Breton top, worn with ascots to a perfect black tie ensemble, Mr. Grant's outfits are timelessly elegant. Cary Grant always chose all of his effortlessly cool wardrobe for his roles, which rightly put him up on a pedestal for men's style that few have ever matched.Gray suit Cary Grant in To Catch a Thief 

A light gray suit with a crisp white shirt is a fail safe combination, which will work in any setting and for virtually all skin complexions. This outfit allows your personality to come to the fore, not your dress: Foolproof discreet elegance personified.

RALPH FIENNES' CASUAL STYLE - A BIGGER SPLASH

Ralph Fiennes and Tilda Swinton display great chemistry in this sun-drenched thriller.

Shot on the remote Italian island of Pantelleria, it is a compelling tale of love/hate relationships.

Ralph Fiennes plays a bohemian music producer, attempting to win back the love of his life. He executes the idea of "loosen up for summer" flawlessly.A Bigger Splash casual clothes Ralph Fiennes

Easy fitting clothes does not necessarily mean you need to be dressed in baggy sacks. Linen is the perfect material to pull off the look, it feels just better to not wear it too close to the skin.
